I'd really like to get the book club up and running. I think it would be something fun for the board. I know there was interest in the past. I hope there is still some interest. But first we need some suggestions as to what book we should read. It would be great if we could get a list going, a suggestion from each person. Then I could set up a poll by the end of the week so that we could vote on a book to read for February.

So, what book would you like to nominate for book club????

I'd like to nominate the book I'm reading now, The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

I wonder if The Time Traveler's Wife got boosted into the limelight b/c of the movie. Hey, if it gets more people to read, I'm all for it!

Im interested. Im in the process of moving to another town in which DH has already showed me the giant library I shall practically live in lol. plus there is a good will there and ive already purchased two books from them and they have a huge selection so im sure I can find whatever I need.

"THe host" by stephanie meyer is a good book.

and anything by Karen Marie Moning. I've read two of her books and Id love to read more if I can get my hands on them.

Is there a certain genre we are looking at? THe host is about aliens... and karen moning, the ones ive read were about druids and faeries. see what gets my interest lol.

Im currently reading, "Skin' by Ben Mezrich, and its an xfiles book.. so.. lol yeah thats my genre... but I'll read anything.

Great suggestions so far! No, no particular genre. I just hope to generate some good conversation about the book!

So far we've got:
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I'm going to wait a couple more days and then set up a poll so we can select a book for February!

Thanks,
Jenn
