    I'd really love it if ya'll read Rule of the Bone. It's one of my favorite books ever, but I'll be good and not try and push it too much.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    I'm open to reading anything. Ya'all just pick. I've already read Black and Blue and the Poisonwood Bible, but I'm fine with discussing them etc., and it really has been a while since I read either book (year(s)), so I might have to flip through them again.

    Well, every book got 4 or 4.5 stars, except one book with 2.5, so I omitted it...
    I have no idea if any of these books are scary. Check out the summaries above to find out. i'd rather find out for myself when we pick the book. Makes it more interesting because you have no idea what to expect.

    Keep 'em comin', guys (and gals ). Someone had asked me to post the other books listed on the summary post I did a few seconds ago... So, two new books were added. If there are any new books to add, please tell me!!!

    I just gave the list of books to a friend and she's going to check the library and see if any of them are on audio. I'll cast my vote as soon as I find out which one she's able to get

    I am voting for "A Prayer for Owen Meanie". "The World According to Garp" is one of my faves. Maybe some others will vote for it too. But, I am up for whatever we all pick out.

    I read "The Rule of the Bone"--a very good book.

    I would also be interested in Sarah, Blindness, and Black and Blue. Any of those four would be fine by me.
