What Is Your Book Club Reading?

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

We used to have an A&F Book Club, and maybe one day, we will again. But in the meantime, as I've posted over the "Fiction for Men" thread, I've been participating recently in a local book club that has just released its upcoming selections. I thought I'd post them here and see if anyone else wants to chime in. This might become a clearinghouse for possible future titles for other clubs. Thoughts on the listed titles are welcome as well.

July's Book

I enjoyed this article about a local New Yorker "Book Club" -- a club for people who don't have time for books, and who need a reason to read those stacked-up issues of the New Yorker on their bedside tables.

For me, the article is an infuriating, hilarious piece, confirming every stereotype about yuppie New Yorker subscribers (I'm one) while making me think, simultaneously, "a New Yorker Book Club isn't a bad idea!"

Washington Post book reviewer Ron Charles strikes up a conversation with a female reader on the Metro, ends up leading her book club's discussion of the book. Nice story.
