Recently I've been more focused on non-fiction, but I enjoyed 11/22/63 by Stephen King, The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke, and The Long Ships by Frans Bengtsson (in true nerd fashion I like my Science Fiction). Oh, and The Sense of an Ending (figured I'd make sure I liked the book and was interested in discussing it before I signed up).
Literary fiction? No clue! But if you decide you want to change focus to literary/science fiction I can help out with suggestions.
Thanks to Joan for organizing this - I don't underestimate the amount of work that goes into keeping a group on track. Looking over the backgrounds of the members I think I may be a bit out of my league. But that's ok since I'll learn something new. Reading books with more depth than I'm used to will be made even more interesting by hearing other people's thoughts about them.
I read mostly genre fiction and history/biography and I thought it would be interesting to add some literary fiction to the mix. There's nothing wrong with the lighter fare I typically read but it's nice to read something with more depth.
