Miranda: This is the Unimaginary Book Club. It pretty much works exactly the opposite of a normal book club, where you would have a group of people all reading the same book at the same time. Instead, we all read whatever the hell we want, write about it, and if it interests the other members, we send our copy of the book on to them. In fact, we once tried to do things the normal book club way. It didn't work out well.
Abby: The club actually started as a joke. Or at least the name did. Lemme back up. It all started with one well-loved copy of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime. See, somebody bought it and passed it on to a friend. And she gave it to her roommate who gave it to her sorority sister who mailed it to a friend back home. We realized that this sort of thing was happening a lot. We were a club of poor kids all reading the same book. Dia, I think, said it was an "imaginary" book club. Which made us realize we wanted a not-imaginary book club. Unimaginary, if you will. Bam! Blog.
M: Well, that's how it worked back in college when we first created the UBC. Now it's pretty much just me and Abby. We're awesome, though. And we have books! We read more books than we write about, but we have grand aspirations of actually keeping up with this blog. I also have grand aspirations of getting out of bed and cleaning the living room. I'm not sure which is more likely to happen.
A: I'm not holding my breath for either of those. No judgement though. I'm clearly no better. We should probably recruit someone responsible and committed to keep this thing going.
This is our only claim to fame. - it might seem like nothing, but we freaking love pamie.
