Hi! We moved webservers. Please let me know if you see anything wonky. Thanks! (I already know the security certs are wonky, it's on my to-do list [also, I accidentally restored from the wrong database backup, so I'm merging back in the changes from the last 3 weeks.]).

Summary
The Calvino Bay Book Club has been meeting for a few months now. It's been OK. The books you've been looking at have hopped around the literary spectrum from the 'classics' like Austen and Dickens, whatever new wunderkind book has got the critics excited, and that time someone wanted to talk about Harry Potter. Something for everyone, you reckon, and you get to meet people you wouldn't otherwise know. But now, oh now, you're going to talk about The Book. That Book, the one you read when you were 18 that suddenly made the universe make sense to you. The Book that helped you work out who you were as a person. You want, no, you have a visceral need to make everyone else understand what The Book means to you.
Description
This game is a semi-larp in which people talk about The Book from different and passionately held points of view, and in which The Book itself becomes a construct arising from the discussion. English Lit geeks will probably have fun with this one. Post-Structuralism - I sneer in your general direction!
