David Hollis of Hamilton, N.Y., read the book when he had the flu.

If you haven't yet read the BPP Book Club selection for March, Hisham Matar's In the Country of Men, it's time to get cracking.

We're having the online meeting on Tuesday, April 1, with Hisham Matar himself soon to follow on the show.

Meanwhile, Dave Hollis of of Hamilton, N.Y.'s Radio Free Hamilton, checks in to say that he read the book while lying in a fever state. And he liked it a lot.

Catching a bug for a couple of days might or might not work for you, as a strategy. Me, I'm hoping to read it on the plane to Nevada later this week.

Hey, we're official! The BPP Book Club now has its own e-mail address.
