    It's totally fine if you don't have a book to suggest the first time around. Thats the point of the bookclub to get you reading! Just send me an email calia.anne@gmail.com so I can keep us organized. It's hard to go through the thread and find everyones names. Hahah. I have some great suggestions from you girls already. I am so excited. So if you don't have a book but still want to join email me so I'm sure. And by Monday we'll have a book to read. YAY!

    ETA: I'm pretty sure you can't do anything wrong in a book club?? I think! Hahaha....as to the light reading or first book chosen. I really don't think it matters. I just choose my favorite book that. I choose one that got me thinking and that I think other people would love. And that I think could lead a discussion on the plot and themes of the book. Sometimes theres book about boy meets girl boy sleeps with girl the end. Sometimes that can't lead talking about it. Sometimes that plot goes with a whole lot more with more characters and betrayal and things like that and could lead a discussion. So it's up to you. You can't go wrong??

          I love her work so I wouldn't complain. I think it's good if some people are thrown off by whatever book we read..haha Nothing wrong with getting out of the comfort zone. I don't expect to 100% love every selection but maybe I will, and if not there is still something to be discussed. This will be fun!

              Drea - Keep reading it gets way better! I read that book awhile ago and it was very slow starting and confusing with the animals/people whatever they were - but towards the middle it gets a lot better!
