  • Also, the poll only allows for 10 options, but if anyone wants to do a write-in, I'd selfishly suggest the following books because these are on my personal list...

    Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People who Cook - Anthony Bourdain

    The Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan

    Death in a Prairie House: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Murders - William R. Drennan

  • I take my voting very seriously. I will do my research and be back shortly to vote.

  • I'm really sad that no one took my suggestion of Neil Patrick Harris's autobiography seriously.
    Actually, I was totally going to put it on as an option, but then I read it was a choose your own adventure book and I thought it would be really hard to discuss as a book club pick.

  • I voted for little women, but its really a tie between that, TKAM and Boy... I think I'm afraid of non fiction lol
  • I'm not normally a nonfiction reader either, but our best book club to date IMO was a nonfiction book that I would never have read otherwise.

  • Bumpity bump.  Does anyone else want to vote?  I'll get the next poll up tomorrow.  

  • We just watched a documentary on Whitey Bolger. What craziness! Now I want to read the book. I've read Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (fascinating) and Freakonomics - yall need to check out that podcast if you;re a nerdy sort (I love it).

  • I think I've read every Dahl book but Boy... I think I should probably read it soon no matter what. I don't know why but it just didn't appeal to me as a kid. I literally read every other Dahl book the library had.
  • I'm supposed to pick only one book??!? Lol
