Book club book selections

26 Jun

I showed you my Book Club L nominations.  After the members of the club voted, here’s what we picked:

We went beyond our usual ~6 months of books so that I wouldn’t have to coordinate new book choices in November/December, we’ll deal with it next January/February.

I’ve read half of these books (the ones where I list reviews, plus The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).  I have mixed feelings about this.  I know they are good books, and I think they’ll lead to interesting discussion, but I’ll have to reread them (I have a lousy memory), and there’s so many other books I want to read!

The one’s I’m looking forward to most (for reading and discussion) are Cutting For Stone and The Unit.

    Wow. We might as well be in the same book group. A couple of months ago we discussed The Unit. Our next pick is Cutting For Stone. And for August someone suggested The Help (though we probably won’t pick it only because there’s not enough copies at the library for everyone to get a copy by August).

      We really are in the same book group– the reason that The Help is scheduled for November is that we hoped that’d give people enough time to get on the library waiting lists. I really encouraged anyone that listens to audiobooks to consider listening to this one.

    I love how your book club selects books well in advance – it gives everyone a chance to get a copy of the book and get it read! My book club is doing Girl With The Dragon Tattoo next month. I have heard great things about many of the books on the list – enjoy!
