I just bought Faith of the Fallen for TG.

 

I would be interested in a book club. I read alot of the same type of books and I should venture out but I don't.

Terry Goodkind is probably my favorite author. Love that series.

 

 

So I noticed we have a lot of participants in this thread. Is anyone interested in getting the BDW book club started back up??? We could pick a book a month to give everyone plenty of time to read it.  Let me know if you guys are? I totally miss it. Let me read stuff I wouldn't of read normally.
 



She has a few books out under the name Madeleine Wickman. I just read The Wedding Girl and I bought Cocktails for Three.

OK I need your opinion. I just bought 3 books and I am not sure which one I want to read first.

 

Terry Goodkind “Faith of the Fallen†– Good 800 page book

Madeleine Wickman “Cocktails for Three†– Will be able to finish over the weekend

Stieg Larsson “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo†– It has been a while since I read a mystery

 

What do you think?

I'd like to do a book club, but honestly, I have so many books on my shelf to read right now that I can't justify ordering any more until they are all read!! If you pick one that I currently have I will gladly join in though!

Hahahaha, sorry Manders, I guess we overburdened you with book options lol.  Maybe I should have only got a few for you!  I'm the same right now, I have at least 3 on my shelf waiting to be read.  Have you started any of the ones we sent?

Yup - I read Mennonite in a little black dress...but honestly didn't love it. Thought it would be funnier & wittier than it was, but I just didn't get it! I've started on Still Alice now! I've got one chapter read, & can't wait to get into it!! Besides that, I think I still have 7 or 8 to read! I had just placed an order from amazon before you sent me those books! I'm good for at least 6 or 7 months I'm sure!

I would totally be interested in a book club! I'm part of one in 'real life' as well ;) How does that work on here? Like for choosing books and what not? I had no idea there used to be one! That's really cool, count me in!

It's super good - stick with it. I know its kinda slow with all the background information at the begninning, but it's totally worth it!!

It seems that EVERYONE loves The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Can someone give me a real high level description of the plot on that one? I keep hearing about it, but still haven't gotten around to checking it out myself.

Probably Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Terry Goodkind is my favorite but then you'll want the next one after that. Haha.

Well, you can put one of those books in the hat and it might get chosen!

I have an excel spreadsheet with everyone's name who is in the BC. Then everyone recommends a book and then there's a website that randomly chooses a number and I put the books with a number and that's how we choose the book.  Or I think last time the person whose book was chosen can choose the number for the next time but I think that takes longer. :) Then after we choose the book we pick a deadline and when the deadline gets here we open the discussion floor to discuss the book.

"Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch--and there's always a catch--is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues."

 

Hope that helps!!
