The Book Club.

Postby RACHE » Sat Jun 27, 2009 4:21 pm

Like the Book Fair, but better cause I made it. That and we vote on a book to read and discuss it. Nothing too thick or obscure. I was thinking a different book every month. My first suggestion is The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Mostly because I have it sitting on my shelf and I need an excuse to read it. I'll make a poll when I get a few suggestions.

Might I suggest The City Of Dreaming Books, by Walter Moers? It's technically the third in a series, but it really requires absolutely no previous knowledge of the other books. The only similarities between them is the setting, which is the fictional continent of Zamonia.

I'll stick with yours for now, but may I suggest "The Fountainhead" for future discussion? That always kicks off nicely round here, and I'm actually reading it now so that helps, too :P

Owen you inspired a "heck yes" thought bubble for me.

...Especially since then SOME PEOPLE can actually legitimately discuss Ayn Rand, without making assumptions simply based one what others have told them rawr

Ill join in, though I don't really have any suggestions, everything I've read is pretty well known. I think. I haven't heard of any the suggestions submitted so far, which either shows I read awful books or I need to be educated. Either way, reading them can't be a bad thing. I know it's a fairly well known book, but how about The Time Traveller's Wife? Just because I love time travel.

Man, my local library doesn't have any of the books. I guess I'll just have to go to Barnes and Noble, depending on what wins.

Tell you the truth I totally forgot to check my Library. I may have to special in one of these books. Good thing I'm a fast reader.

My library has all but the Follet book. I read that The Time Travelers Wife was made into a film being released at the end of summer. I like reading a book then watching the movie to see how bad they screw it up. lol :)
