And why are we so late in asking this question?? :)

My club is reading Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris. It was pleasant enough, but sort of a throwaway book, in my opinion. Not really meaty enough for a book club choice - but we've been reading a lot of rubbish lately, and there's no end in sight. I'm starting to think it's a very good thing that I'll be moving within the next six months as that's the only way I could politely leave this book club!

I'm part of an online book club that's a spinoff of another online group. For July we read Life of Pi by Yann Martel and we are discussing it now. I found it pretty fascinating and not what I expected (I try not to know too much about a book in advance). We are having a pretty lively debate over it. :)

Our book for August is Special Topics in Calamity Physics which I should probably get my hands on soon. :)

I loved Life of Pi! Great choice!

This month we're reading Peace like a River by Leif Enger, I love this book and am only sorry that I must wait another week to discuss it, particularly since I regularly encounter some of the group members and we try to refrain comment until the meeting

We read Sabriel, a young adult fantasy pick. Half the group didn't read it (including me), some liked it, some really didn't. I do like YA books quite a bit, but this one was just too YA, if that makes sense. I don't think the book made for good discussion, either.

My township library group did My Cousin, Rachel which was excellent for purposes of eliciting involvement from the participants. The first question was whether or not Rachel was guilty of murder and the second discussion question was whether Philip could be considered a reliable narrator. Those two questions provided lively exchanges over the course of an hour and a half.
