Book Club for the Ladies!!

I'm trying to find out how much interest there would be in having a book club that would discuss the book: "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough". It's a rare book that changes my thinking, but this one has. I would like to share it with any of you who are interested. Here's one review of this book:

Booklist: *Starred Review* Gottlieb, 37, made the decision to become a single parent after years of searching for Mr. Right. Four years later, when she still hadn?t found him, she decided to take a good look at her dating habits?and the dating habits of women around her?to see if the problem is not a dearth of good men but rather women?s expectations of them. Gottlieb finds that women want it all?and often aren?t willing to compromise on their list of traits their ideal mate must have. In their twenties, many women leave good relationships based on an elusive feeling that they could find something more with someone else, and they regret it down the road when their choices dwindle. It?s not that women aren?t willing to settle; it?s that many refuse to recognize that their vision of the perfect man doesn?t match reality. With the help of dating coach Evan Marc Katz, Gottlieb reconsidered her own standards in the hope of finding happiness. Gottlieb?s honest, astute analysis will resonate with many women and make them uneasy as they recognize themselves in her experiences and those of the women she interviews. Gottlieb makes a strong case in this groundbreaking work. --Kristine Huntley

This book can be found used at Amazon for $10.12 w/ free shipping (Marry Him @ Amazon) - go in with a couple friends!! I've found reading questions on Oprah.com that will guide us through our reading. Send me an email if you're interested. I'm thinking about doing it once summer is over and the start of school settles things down a bit.
