Everyone is all in a tizzy. What to choose? How to pick? What is a "Book Club" book anyway?
Is it one of those you see with the ready-made questions printed in the back?
One that's been on Oprah's list? Or from some other Book Club list, like Goodreads?
For me, I think any book might work, as long as it is well-written and invites discussion afterward. A book that you savor, that you can't stop thinking about - a book that actually makes you think.
I'm still working out what I'm going to suggest. There are two books about animals that I really want to read. They are:
The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, the Horse That Inspired a Nation
Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend
by Susan Orlean
But although these are probably wonderful, are they really "book club" books? Maybe.
But here are two more that I know will be conversation starters. The first I have read (and it's wonderful) and the second I haven't.
