@ L : we've got to start somewhere... They talk and talk about the book club but nothing happened. so I might as well get something going...
I got an idea, we could mash the SBC & BC and get an SBBC. how's that for a plan?

let me know...

I've got a great suggestion for the 1st book and no don't worry it won't be a Twilight book.

Here's my 2 cents:
- Paulo Coelho creates many "bright" novels. I love "The Alchemist" and "Zahir". But as for the others, the impression is not as strong as those 2 :-|
- Haruki Murakami, with unimaginable settings, creates many "balanced" novels. I love his works, especially Kafka on the Shore, Norwegian Wood, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. It's not always about the "good" side :wink:

Too bad I'm not good with novels like LOTR :???:

I don't think it is. But either way, it won't harm you to pour your 2 cents about books here.

Now, I wonder if someone reads 50 Shades of Grey :cool:

Apart from that, the trilogy series from Stieg Larsson are pretty good. I wonder if Jo Nesbo will be the "successor". I haven't read his book. :P

Won't be my choice for a Book Club discussion!

Anyone like the Classics? Am reading "Far from the Madding Crowd" at the moment...
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.
