Big Bad Blogger Book Club

After this meme a few weeks ago, two really smart people and me decided that we’d give a book club a try. We’d agree to read the same book at the same time and blog about it. If you’d like to sign up, leave me a comment. Remember, a facebook or myspazz blog is fine too.

Because someone needs to make a decision, we’ll begin with A Fine Balance (Rohinton Mistry).

After that’s finished, we’ll select by group consensus from the following list:

A Prayer for Owen Meany (Irving)
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams)
East of Eden (John Steinbeck)
Tuesdays with Morrie (Mitch Albom)
Dune (Frank Herbert)
The Notebook (Nicholas Sparks)
Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand)
The Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follett)
Power of One (Bryce Courtenay)
I Know This Much is True (Wally Lamb)
The Red Tent (Anita Diamant)
The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho)
Confessions of a Shopaholic (Sophie Kinsella)
Anna Karenina (Tolstoy)
The Grapes of Wrath (John Steinbeck)
She’s Come Undone (Wally Lamb)
The Poisonwood Bible (Barbara Kingsolver)
A Tale of Two Cities (Dickens)
Great Expectations (Dickens)
The Stone Angel (Margaret Laurence)
Crime and Punishment (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)
The Fountainhead (Ayn Rand)
War and Peace (Tolstoy)
Catch 22 (Joseph Heller)
Les Miserables (Hugo)
The Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
Love in the Time of Cholera (Marquez)
Shogun (James Clavell)
The English Patient (Michael Ondaatje)
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Betty Smith)
The World According to Garp (John Irving)
The Diviners (Margaret Laurence)
Not Wanted on the Voyage (Timothy Findley)
Of Mice and Men (Steinbeck)
Rebecca (Daphne DuMaurier)
Brave New World (Aldous Huxley)
The Stone Diaries (Carol Shields)
Blindness (Jose Saramago)
In The Skin of a Lion (Ondaatje)
The Good Earth (Pearl S. Buck)
White Oleander (Janet Fitch)
Woman of Substance (Barbara Taylor Bradford)

  1. I’m in! I even have a week off starting tomorrow, so I can get a head start – yeah right…

    Funnily enough I just borrowed the Red Tent from a friend at work. So we can do that one next and I’ll be ahead of the game! Or not…lol.

  2. I’ll pick it up sometime around Christmas.

  3. Ooh, actually, I ordered one for 69 cents on Amazon. Sweet deal.
