What book(s) have you read recently that would make a great basis for stimulating conversation?

I have a summer "re-reading" list -- a list of books I read in my 20's that I loved to see if they've held up over the course of time. I'm re-reading "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" by Tom Robbins, "The World According to Garp" by John Irving and "Sophie's Choice" by William Styron. Any of these books would be great fun to discuss with a group.

What's your favorite nonfiction book ever?

"Half the Sky" by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn. I don't know if it's my favorite non-fiction book ever -- but it's certainly one that I have found myself explaining to many people I meet. I'm fascinated and deeply disturbed by the plight of women in other cultures.

What's a novel that you read for a high school or college requirement that really stayed with you?

"The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald I loved this book! It was probably the first book of American literature that really spoke to me.
