Book Club is currently reading a delightful book called I Capture the Castle, a coming of age story about an eccentric British family in the 1930’s who live in a ruined castle. So far we’ve had great fun discussing the characters’ romantic prospects, debating whether or not Stephen will lose an arm in a tragic farming accident (Josh Wood says Yes, the rest say No), and whether Simon’s beard is more Elizabethan or lumberjack in nature. Oh, the philosophical debates inspired by great literature! So provocative! So controversial!

Once we’ve finished the book, we will be watching the movie.

Here is a picture of the actor who plays Stephen, a “godlike youth” :
