Here’s what my “grown-up” book club is reading this year. Each September we all bring a couple of suggestions, make a master list, and then get vote. Books with most votes get on calendar for year. We also try to always include one non-fiction, one children’s, and one “classic” Live in G-ville and want a book club? Shoot me a comment and I’ll get you the info 🙂

    Cool… we do the exact same thing when choosing books, right down to the nonfiction, children’s, & classics! We had Great Expectations and Those Who Save Us on our list last year, and we have Olive Kitteridge on the list for this year. Do you have a list of past years’ books? We’re always looking for good ideas! I keep our list at the bottom of my blog page. It has the past few years’ on it. I live for book club! 🙂
