Sounds amazing, but how would it work? Dicussions online?

YESS!

great idea! i’m currently reading “white oleander” by janet fitch, “the death of ivan ilyich” by leo tolstoy, and “sexus” by henry miller, all good reads so far. personally, i recommend salinger and chekhov :)

Timothy Findley’s “Pilgrim” is a fabulous book. It’s definitely not an easy read, but it’s wonderfully written, and is a great book, especially if you’re a fan of historical fiction!

What a wonderful idea. I’m a total bibliomaniac! Currently I am reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. As child I loved a series that was based on the book, and ever since I wished to read it. Also, it is a classic and it is never bad to know the classics, is it.
So, I wish you luck with your new project!
Have a nice … wait what time is it “over there”?
For me, it’s sunday evening… Well, have a good time!!

i’ll definitely participate! (:

I would definitely participate!
I recently read The Archivist by Martha Cooley. Its about T.S. Eliot’s poetry and the life of a man in his own created solitude – really beautiful!

about half way thru – in a perfect world – by laura kasischke. bought is yesterday & read about 200 pages. really feel connect to the family in the book, i think it is well written & can’t wait to finish it so i can pass it in.

This is a wonderful idea. I am currently reading “Eat, Pray, Love” and it is wonderful. “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns” are both books that I think everyone should read. Good luck, hope everything goes well and people are interested! I certainly am.

I love books & I think that there would be some interesting stuff posted here. I’ve been reading “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert, which is amazingly well written & honest. Christopher Moore is hilarious & I love Chuck Pahalniuk, but he’s not for everyone. I’d love to see what others suggest!

Love this idea! Always love a good book recommendation and telling others about great books!
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Color of Water by James McBride
The Center of Winter by Marya Hornbacher
I think this is a great idea!

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss is one of my favorites of all time. So good!

GREAT IDEA!!!

This would be fun! My picks would be Water for Elephants or Her Fearful Symmetry!

Ashley Spalding

I think that is a great idea!

Yes! Yes! Please!! There’s a really great collection of personal essays that came out this summer in the book “Love is a Four Letter Word”. That is my recommendation. and it has comics too :)

I would love to be part of a book club! I’m a student so I have a hard time sitting down with a book of my own. This would totally help me take some time out of the day for reading. I’d like to read more Miller and Nin as well as some period romances like Wuthering Heights (perfect for the holidays). It would also be fun to read something like Harry Potter with a group.

That is a brilliant idea! Two great books I’ve read recently are The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. Ishmael by Daniel Quinn is also very good.

Gina

Like Water for Chocolate – was a best seller at one point in time. its a whimsical colorful story about love and life in a spanish family.. each chapter begins with a recipe..

Megan Brzozowski

A really really fantastic book is East of Eden by John Steinbeck! Everyone should give it a try!

Free People clothing is my favorite…I’m poor, but I always look for it on sale and in Buffalo Exchanges Free People clothing is my favorite…I’m poor, but I always look for it on sale and in Buffalo Exchanges <3
I just posted me wearing a dress on my blog...it's for sure one of my 3 favorite items of clothing I own. Thanks for the artistic designs!!!

‘Le Capitaine Fracasse’ by Théophile Gautier is one of my favorite,but I’ve just finished ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker. Both great…

I have recently read Dean Koontz ” Darkest day of the year” and i absolutely recommend it to the fullest! All though is sounds dark, its not quite so at all. Its a mixture of romance, and air of eeriness with a great twist :)

I LOVE THIS IDEA! I’m always looking for a new book to read and I think that this will help me find some new, awesome ones! I recently read Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. In case you don’t know, it is a historical fiction book about the building of a cathedral set in 12th century England. (It’s also a love story!) I really enjoyed it, even though it’s pretty lengthy, about 1,000 pages. I definitely recommend it to anyone who like history and romance!

This is a great idea and I would love to participate! Lately I have been in love with “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosk.
