Based on the votes so far, I've picked out 5 titles to vote on to read for the first meeting. I've consulted several different book club websites and tried to pick a diverse group. I've given links to the Barnes and Noble website reviews to help you choose.
If anyone has a title they would like me to add to the choices, let me know.
I wanted to make sure we have a book to discuss at the first meeting as an ice breaker. We will also talk about other books and locations at this meeting.
Handle with Care, Jodi Picoulthttp://search.barnesandnoble.com/Handle-with-Care/Jodi-Picoult/e/9780743296410/?cds2Pid=17806
In looking a the reader reviews, this seemed like a book that would produce lots of different points of view.
The Shack, William Younghttp://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Shack/William-P-Young/e/9780964729230/?itm=1
Reportedly very uplifting in the vein of "Tuesdays with Morie" but fiction.
Rebecca, Daphne Du Mauierhttp://search.barnesandnoble.com/Rebecca/Daphne-Du-Maurier/e/9780380778553/?itm=1
A classic that appeared on nearly every book club list I reviewed
Prodigal Summer, Barbara Kingsolverhttp://search.barnesandnoble.com/Prodigal-Summer/Barbara-Kingsolver/e/9780060959036/?itm=1
Also a book club list favorite
A Memory of Running, Ron McLartyhttp://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Memory-of-Running/Ron-McLarty/e/9780143036685/?tabname=custreview
I saw this while looking up another book and thought it sounded interesting.
