i'll convert you i promise

First, thank you for your book suggestions.

Last night was my turn to host and it was Book Club #18! EIGHT-TEEN.

That, my friends, is dedication.

We decided to make a list of books and their selectors.

I highly suggest joining (or starting!) a book club. (I was anti-bookclub from the start and have since been 100% fully CONVERTED.)

I love how similar our book clubs' lists are. Even though I have a lit degree (or perhaps especially because I have a lit degree...) I hated the idea of a book club. But now I lurve mine dearly.

I have you to thank for many enjoyable reads: Push, anything by Haven Kimmel, Guernsey, and more. I was surprised to find that I have read everything (except the romance novels) that commenters left on the previous post. And I thought I didn't have time to read much nowadays...obviously I have more time than I thought. :)

Recommendations from me to you.

Historical fiction: Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth or Fall of Giants. Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd. My Enemy's Cradle. American Wife.

Fiction: The Hunger Games trilogy (it's young adult, but it's a MUST READ). And I too enjoyed all of the Uglies books (more young adult...what does this say about me??). The Thirteenth Tale (another must) also The Forgotten Garden by the same author (not a must, but good).

Nonfiction: Nuture Shock. Better Off: Flipping the Switch on Technology.

Old School: Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. DeMaurier's Rebecca. Anything Austen or Bronte.

Sorry about the mammoth list.

Once a book nerd, always a book nerd. :)

I like the book club stuff!! And I like that the comment I see beside me as I type this mentions Ken Follett! I want to read Pillars of the Earth. I've heard AMAZING things from many many people with the same tastes in books I have (dragon tattoo, dan brown, etc). :)

I love my book club. We started 9 yrs ago when I was pg with my middle kiddo and still going strong. We've changed a few members over the years but I think my bookclub friends are some of the best ones I have now! Hey you should join our virtual bookclub too, I'll send you the link! I have our bookclub selections listed on goodreads.com.
