Book Club Ideas

Post placeholder image

Ok, so it looks like I’ll get to select a book for an upcoming book club meeting. Even thought I lead my own book club for 5 years, I’m a little nervous about recommending a book to this group since I’ve only been in club for about 4 months. To give some background, this book club has been in existence for around 16+ years. Most of the women are in their late 30s/early 40s. A friend who I’ve known for about a year invited me to join last fall. She has been in book club for 8 years. So does anyone have any suggestions? I get the impression they read a lot of books by women authors so want to suggest a good discussion book written by a man.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll check out Two-Part Invention and Time & Again. As for Geek Love, my book club read that one year for Valentines. I was the only person who sort of like it….the book indeed was quite strange.

    Duh, redux. OK, sorry about the HTML. The links took after all.

    Duh. You mean a book by a man. OK, then. How about Time and Again by Jack Finney? Check it out on Amazon. By the way, what’s the way to add a hyperlink in this comment program? I keep using the HTML but it doesn’t take.

    Try Katherine Dunn’s “Geek Love.” This book is a real shocker and is so bizarre nobody will be able to put in down. I am NOT KIDDING.

    If you’re looking for a good book and don’t mind a female author, try Madeleine L’Engle’s Two-Part Invention. That was the first book my new book club read and it was wonderful.
