    What’s with Mrs. Skeletor in the background? Is it a cardboard cut-out of Agatha Christie? If it is, it’s the most fleshed-out character in the room.

    Boy, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard 9 year olds discuss meeting time bylaws, I’d have…1 nickel, which is not a lot, but more than I’d expect.

    Just how late does the book club meet? Surely Lillian has to be in bed by 7:30 PM.

    Tom! The Ohioana Awards are in a couple of weeks! Ohioana librarians like Lillian want you to spend 2 weeks on them!

    In my experience the old crowd prefers the earlier times especially if it means heading home in the dark.

    “Great idea.”

    She and her sister get up and leave.

    The twins are telling the truth……not just wanting to get out early.

    Why does the Agatha Christie cut-out keep moving? On Monday it had a book shelf on it’s right but now it’s a window on it’s right. Does someone keep moving it?

    GOD Bless America! HIS Eagle Will Soar Again!

    Wow, way to be rude and mean to little kids. Brillo Head Lady is feeling all high and mighty after getting her gold star.

    I thought that this was supposed to be an adult book club. Aren’t Amelia, and, her sister, a “little” young for Joyce’s Ulysses?

    Is Tom B an NPR listener? The Kitchen Sisters are an independent production team whose pieces run occasionally on public radio.

    This must have been written by AI; it makes no sense at all.

    Welcome back to book club gag-a-day. Two-for-two. As I predicted yesterday, it’s the twins’ turn to speak. Is this cartoonist predictable or what?

    The dissension in the ranks continues into a fourth day. Lillian has lost control of the book club and needs to be put out to pasture. Time to disband or elect a new leader.

    Curious how the witch Lillian is eyeing the twins in panel #2. Is she daydreaming about cooking them in her oven? Time to fatten them up, thinks Lillian.

    Lillian: Girls, would you like some candy?
