Okay, we admit we have no good excuse for putting off this month's Wrapped Up In Books discussion another week. The dog did not eat our copy of the book. Our grandmother didn't die. We don't have mono. We've just been busy, both with work and with enjoying summer. And we suspect you are too. (That's right, we're doing this just for you. It's your fault. Don't you feel guilty for holding us all up?)

So we're giving you (and us) another week to finish reading and thinking about David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas. (We're also working on securing an interview with him that wasn't going to happen in time for this discussion.) Discussion will now start on Monday, August 2. See you then!
