I've been interested in joining a book club for a while but wanted one that didn't just read whatever the latest hot book is. I love the idea of this club - literature from a wide range of eras and sources, important works that you might have missed. I think stories are important, and I love discussing books and their impact with other people who have experienced the same characters and plot lines.
Jane Austen, Raymond Chandler, Kate Griffin, Jonathan Stroud.
My favorite books are the comfort books I turn to again and again (Ex: The Man with a Load of Mischief by Martha Grimes). I also love Peter Pan by JM Barrie; A Tale of Two Cities made me bawl; Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier changed how I viewed literature in high school;
