Hello again, KLiters!
LettieLou and I are so stoked that Kristen and Kerouac fans alike are joining in with our read/groove/bake along :)
Please do let us know your comments on the book as well as any songs that you think would be just perfect for the soundtrack or any of our recipes that you've tried...
Down the road a bit (ha) we're hoping to invite guest commenters to take part in our breakdown, where you'll get to join in on the behind-the-scenes chat (and see what random tangent hilarity gets edited out of posts for our own good - trust). Eventually, we'd love to turn this into regular group chat-room discussions - like our own online Beatnik Bootcamp!

LettieLou: great segway
Lorabell: and everything in him is "pointing" at her - ha!
LettieLou: even that seems disappointing to him
not enough, ya know?
she's kinda meh
and her friend isn't attractive
LettieLou: if dean isn't involved, it's not good enough
Lorabell: he's already checked out
