Almost a year ago in February, I joined the “Anitwitter Book Club.” Draggle and a handful of anime bloggers and Twitter folk started the club, with our first book being Franz Kafka’s The Trial. Those following included:

  • The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu
  • Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
  • Earth Abides by George Stewart
  • Neuromancer by William Gibson (Dec 2015-Jan 2016)
