Let's start a thread of suggestions for future book selections!

Despite the title of the group non-fiction suggestions are also welcome! Maybe I should change the name.....

How about (you might be sorry you asked): Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes - classic, sad, but wonderful book. Into the Wild by John Krakauer - it's nonfiction and I heard it was good haven't read it yet. Crooked Letter Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin - a story about two friends one black one white set in the South in the 70s. The Hunchback of Nieman Marcus by Sonya Sonnes - free verse like Sharp Teeth and very funny. Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell - nonfiction about the loss of Seal Team 10, heard it was great haven't read it. Two books I've heard about and wanted to read for years but haven't yet - The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. And on the goofy side of guilty pleasures a hilarious book called Fool by Christopher Moore.

See you guys tonight!!!

I'd like to suggest The Round House by Louise Erdrich. It won the National Book Award for fiction last year. It centers around a 15-year-old boy whose mother was brutally raped and almost set on fire. The book is set on a Native American reservation. It's a very complex book -- starts off as a mystery to find out who did it, then turns into a revenge novel. It's a coming-of-age book throughout, and also delves deeply into issues about family, culture and friendship.
