December Selection

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

I'm sorry that it took me so long to come up with a selection. How soon does everyone think they could get this read? Any way we could plan a meeting while Ash is still in town?

Let me know what you think!

Finding Book Club selections

I'm sure we each have different ways of finding selections for book club. For instance, I'm purely selfish and just choose a book I've been wanting to read anyway :) But for those of you that are slightly more altruistic, I found these sites that might be helpful.

Even if you don't need those sites for book club, they might help you in finding your own leisure reading selections. Enjoy!

Quick turnaround on this one!  With To Kill a Mockingbird fresh on your mind, it's time to begin our next selection.

Dessert and Book Review  






Some reviews:

"Superbly crafted and astonishingly powerful. . . . It will thrill readers who cherish their worn copies of "To Kill A Mockingbird."" --People

"With a suspense, lyricism, and moral complexity that recall To Kill a Mockingbird and Presumed Innocent, this compulsively readable novel explores what happens when a woman who has devoted herself to ushering life into the world finds herself charged with responsibility in a patient's tragic death. As Sibyl Danforth faces the antagonism of the law, the hostility of traditional doctors, and the accusations of her own conscience, Midwives engages, moves, and transfixes us as only the very best novels ever do."

Language

I just started reading Great House and have already encountered some bad language. I don't know what you guys want to do. Have you already bought the book? If you're already into it, does the language get worse or is it isolated at the beginning? Any suggestions?
