    I don't want to read the Harry Potter series until she is DONE with them because knowing me I'd start devouring them and then not being able to know how it ends would kill me. I own the first four books but have yet to read them. I'm interested in this thread but would be curious about your book choice- so it depends on what you choose.

    I keep getting recommended Barbara Kingsolver books, so maybe something by her (that none of you have read)...?

    I may be little late but I'm in.

    I was going to do a book club but I didn't quite get to posting a thread. Anna did it for me.

    Anyway, I dont mind any read.

    ditto. Well other than Sci-Fi, Westerns, Romances, or Children's books. Other than that, I'm game!

    I have really enjoyed the Potter series as well, she does a fantastic job of getting you to see what she is describing. It is also done well from the view point of the characters ages.

    I liked recently the Lovely Bones it was really good.
    One that most people come away really liking is
    A prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving it has a sort of universal appeal.

    Okay, so how are we going to pick a book...? Because none of us are being very assertive...

    John's remember that we had a movie club that never got off the ground. But this might just work as we had much fewer members then, as it would only take 5 or 6 to get a decent conversation about the book going, and hell, it could resurrect the old movie club. I seem to recall everyone listing a suggestion, and then somebody setting up a poll with the top 4 or 5, with the poll winner being the first book.

    Aww..I liked "The Bean Trees", but it took me a bit to get into...

    Anna, since you have five million books, what do you recommend? (I have tons too, but mine are all over the map)

    I heard "Black and Blue" by Anna Quindlen is supposed to be really good (and it won a Pulitzer). It's near the top of my Summer reading list...
