I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. I have read two of them and have wanted to read several others. Everyone seems to like the Stieg Larsson books so maybe this will be the incentive to get me to read one.

Jill, it's definitely a pick and choose kind of book club. There's one on there that I would never read myself, but we love the lady who suggested it, so we're taking one for the team, that month.

I've read the Giant's House before, but it's been long ago and I'm going to have to give it a quick skim.

That's 2011, right?

Looks like some good stuff on there! I'll try to remember to play!

Yes, it's 2011. I'm thinking I might need to start Les Miserables NOW, just so I can finish on time.

Gosh, I started Les Miserables, oh, about, um, 20 years ago, but never finished. But I've seen the stage play twice, including once on Broadway. Does that count?

I might give this a shot. But then, we have our own book club here and I don't participate. blush

Sure, it counts! You'll still be able to discuss the story. It is sort of like a badge of honor to say that you've completed the book, though, isn't it?!

I'll give it a go, but I'm so horrible on following through... blush

I've read The Shack twice and I love it! I'm totally up for discussing it.

I read "The Help" and it was SO GOOD! It was a quick read, too.
My book club read the dragon tattoo book, too. I didn't b/c I just never got around to picking it up. Apparently, it is pretty hard to get into, but once you do, it's good. They said the first 150-200 pages are financial and historical stuff that is hard to read. I think, if I ever read it, I'll just start at page 200!

Do most book clubs pick their books for the whole year? It's a good idea, because sometimes we are late getting ours together. We are picking them 2 months ahead this year, so we'll see how that goes.

Thanks for sharing your list, I will definitely be reading some of these books!

James Michener books are like that. The first 200 pages or so are pre-historic and historical stuff which I never minded as I'm a history kind of gal, but it puts some people off.

OH, NO (about the Dragon Tattoo book.) I saw the movies and they are SO GREAT. (subtitles and all.)

I'm buzzing through Chocolate Chip murders - not my fave, but the recipes are FANTASTIC. Then I must get going on Les Mis.

This was a book that was not on my reading "wish list" What was it for you? I'd love to hear what you thought.
