Your Two Cents

If you were selecting books for a book club, what what would you choose for the next 8-10 months?

Comment please.

That's a tough wide open question. Book clubs are a challenge, since you want to read things you'll like but you also want books that will stimulate discussions. The Corrections by Jonathon Franzen and A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers are two books that I can think of which I didn't wholeheartedly enjoy but which might provide fodder for a spirited discussion. When my local book club was ongoing, the person hosting the next meeting picked the next book. The rules were that it had to be available in paperback and it had to be a book no one had yet read. Another helpful inquiry might be what books have your bookclubs read, would you recommend them for other bookclubs, why or why not.
