                    Ok. I decided to just go ahead and pick. I'm guessing you girls don't have one to suggest so I'll let you just be absent this time and next time you can choose. Which is perfectly ok for first timers!!

                    So we had 12 books and the random generator chose number 5 which was Crystalballl's choice. She chose:

                     

                    Emma Donoghue "Room"

                     

                    This is our first book. I've never read it but just went to amazon to get a synopsis for you guys.

                     

                    In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time. --Lynette Mong

                     

                    So we'll give us a month to read. So book discussion will open on October 12th. Also, any time from now until the next book you can submit a book for next month. If you would like to submit the same book just let me know in a PM or you can choose a new book to submit. Obviously, Crystal you will have to choose a new one.

                     

                    Happy Reading!!!!

                      I'd like to submit my same book for next month.
