Best Book Club Books Lists

Like me, many book discussion group participants are beginning the process of choosing new books for the new year.

I was reminded of this by the RA Online weekly "Under the Radar List" this week which was entitled, Great Reads for Book Clubs.

This list is great, the problem is, my group has done almost every one of these books.  If your group has been around awhile, you probably have too.

So where do I go to find ideas for what to discuss. Here are a few of my favorite resources to help you narrow down what titles your group would most enjoy:
Finally, remember that I publish a report on every book my group discusses.  You can access these posts by using the book discussion books tag.

I hope your 2011 book discussion planning goes smoothly.  I will be posting the BPL's choices for the first half of 2011 before the end of November.

    Hi Becky,
    I was surprised to discover that October is National Reading Group Month, sponsored by the Women's National Book Association which was founded in 1917. They also produce an annual list of suggested discussion titles. Some suggestions, like Emma Donoghue's book "Room" are very recent publications. One can check out the lists and the organization at www.nationalreadinggroupmonth.org. This seems to be a worthwhile site to remember!

    Thanks for the heads up. I posted those links and that list back in September here: http://raforall.blogspot.com/2010/09/october-is-national-book-club-month.html

    Thanks for reminding me to rehash that post. It has been awhile.
