20th Century Classic - March

UPDATE: Our votes are always close and this month was no exception.  The winner of the March poll was The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton. 

Please join us in March for our CBL's 20th century classic literary choice.  This year our goal was to opt for a modern-ish classic that is, perhaps, a lesser known title and will hopefully be a first time read that we can share together versus a revisit to a vaguely familiar assigned reading from our academic past.  However, it's just fine if it's a re-read for you.   I also felt that all 3 options would offer some great discussion topics, and lastly, none of the 3 options are 600 page snores. 

The poll is up, please click the more tab, then polls, and vote for your choice.  Mr. K's, Thriftbooks.com, or the library are great options for these great classic reads, but I believe all 3 are available on kindle also. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

    how Art Thou Cafe is a great place. Everyone is so friendly with a great community feeling. It's a bit if a throw-back to a time I never experienced with the intimate music setting. I'm going to go just for fun.

    It would be fun to have small discussions posted. I'm not sure if that interests anyone. :)

    Who has started "The Weight of Blood?" What a contrast to Whartin. It's riveting.

    For my first time, I found this book club to be very nice. Everyone contributed to discussion and many threw in some fun topics, aside from the book topic. I highly recommend this group.

    These all looked like good reads. Two were free on Kindle and the other was $2.99. Treat yourself!

      Thanks, Laurie! I downloaded them as well, then ended up finding a copy of our winner at a flea market for $1.00 also, so I splurged. AND, 'The Custom of the Country' is supposed to be Edith Wharton's greatest work, (according to the experts, of course). I'm halfway through so far, so good. I'm sooooooo hoping I can make it.

      I hope so, too. And wasn't Undine's name just about the right amount of "ugly" for her. Yikes!

    Fun Fact - "Edith Newbold Jones was born into such wealth and privilege that her family inspired the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses."
    See you tomorrow!

    I have just joined the club, therefore have not had time to read the book. But I hope to come to the next meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
