Tea time and book club

For this month's book club meeting, we gathered at a local coffee shop. I had tea, someone else had hot chocolate, and another person had coffee. I really enjoy the atmosphere of coffee shops. Not sure what it is exactly.
Our book that we discussed was Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. The reviews of the group were mixed. It was a sad book, but also quite symbolic and deep. There will be a movie coming out in 2012 starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock. I wonder what the movie will focus on, as there were many layered stories in the book. If you are looking for something to cheer you up, this probably won't do it. One positive message of the book is to remember to say "I love you", as you never know when it might be too late to say those important words.
What are you reading?
