A few of our book clubs are going the classics route (Middlemarch, Gone With the Wind). But there's also been a demand for contemporary lit (Freaknomics) and "light" lit (He's Just Not That Into You).
What do YOU wish your book club was reading?
Kidding aside, I would recommend his books to anybody and everybody.
Istanbul, for example, is one of those books I, personally, have trouble putting down.
hazelik, those are some great authors! Maybe you need a second book group or maybe one (or more) of the LT groups will fill that need?

I've been thinking of throwing Absalom, Absalom into the mix because I enjoyed the layers of storytelling in that book - but I'd rather pick an older classic I haven't read (and there's lots of those). Any suggestions?
Throw in H.G. Wells 'Call of Cthulu' while you're at it..
When I picked my three I went for middle of the road books, reviewed them and then had people say well if I'd know it was about such and such I wouldn't have voted for it!
We still show up for discussions if we've only read fifty pages of the book...sometimes the discussion why the book isn't that interesting is useful too. Most of us don't have time to waste on books we don't like.
