Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. This month we read Charles Yu's novel, How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading right now. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, and you can start doing that right this nanosecond!

So, what did you think of Yu's book?

On Friday afternoon from 2-3 PDT, Yu will join us to answer your questions about the novel, so look out for a post on Thursday morning where you can post questions for him!

Want to get a headstart on next month's book? We're taking a bit of a hiatus for the holidays, so we're going to do a mega-read for late January: We'll be tackling Connie Willis' Blackout and All Clear (her two-book novel). We'll meet to discuss both books on January 25.
