book club

since february of 2004 i've belonged in a book club with some girls i used to teach with. we meet every few months to discuss our latest book. we take turns hosting & serving a delicious meal. after having some good eats, a few drinks, & lots of catching up, we are finally ready to delve into the book. here is a list of books (i hope i haven't forgotten any) we've read so far, in no particular order:

wicked by gregory maguire

truth & beauty by ann patchett

the secret life of bees by sue monk kidd

the red tent by anita diamant

the da vinci code by dan brown

the curious incident of the dog in the night-time by mark haddon

one flew over the cuckoo's nest by ken kesey

brimstone by douglas preston & lincoln child

blindness by jose saramago

beach music by pat conroy

a long way gone: memoirs of a boy soldier by ishmael beah

pride & prejudice by jane austen

the books here that i recommend you read are:

beach music

a long way home

blindness (hard to read, but i appreciated it at the end)

my favorite: the da vinci code

if you've read any of these books, please comment on my blog what you think of them. OR if you have any recommendations feel free to post them on the comments as well. i enjoy reading & always like to have a good book recommended by a friend...or someone i don't even know! happy reading!

I don't see any Harry Potter or Dr. Seuss on your list. I guess I couldn't be part of your club unless you add pop-up books in the near future.
