I met with two new friends for coffee on Tuesday night, and we started a book club. We were having coffee at a Barnes and Noble, so maybe the environment seduced us.
So far our club consists of the three of us with ambitions to read and discuss Sense and Sensibility. Two of us are already Jane Austen lovers, with plans to quickly indoctrinate the third member.
Any suggestions for great books that we should put on our list?
If you are looking for something in the Victoria genre, I would suggest Adam Bede by George Eliot. It's a dense novel, but one worth reading.
Moby Dick is one of my favorite books of all time, but I was a geeky English major :)
If you are looking for a read with an Asian flair, I enjoyed Memoirs of a Geisha and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.
Enjoy your book club!
If you are looking for something with a Christian view for women, Captivating really changed my perspecitve on a lot of things.
Karen Kingsbury books are great and would probably be good books for discussion especially the Redemption Series.
Enjoy Sense and Sensibility. It's one of my favorites!
Other favorite classics are Jane Eyre and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Have you ever read "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers? It is a fictional re-telling of the story of Hosea.
