Book Nine, suggestions

It is now time to start thinking about what book we'll read next.

We welcome all suggestions, they can be new or old recommendations. Post your suggestions by Wednesday evening and we will narrow the options down to 4-5 choices to vote on beginning Thursday. Final decision will be made Sunday based on the feedback you provide.

Just an FYI- We are looking at an early October chat. That is subject to change based on book length.


  1. Some proposals, both old and new...

    The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

    Embassytown, by China Mieville

    The Imperfectionists: A Novel, by Tom Rachman

    A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, by James Joyce

    Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

  2. I nominate The Color of Water by James McBride.

    I will second Amanda's Hunger Games nomination.

    I've read Crime and Punishment and I'm not entirely sure I can handle such a dense book right now, though I'd totally be up for reading it over Christmas break when I'm not bogged down by school.

    I have no particular feelings regarding the others, so I'm down if others are interested.
