Barbara Kingsolver's latest, "Unsheltered" is so so so very very good - every single person I've spoken to about it so far agrees. I wish I had a bookclub to talk to about it as well, there's gold to mine in pondering this well after finishing. It's ...more

Bri Lee, Eggshell Skull: A memoir about standing up, speaking out and fighting back

“It wasn't just him in the same way it wasn't just me. It was because I was sick of men like him. Because I'd seen them all, each as unoriginal in their selfishness as the next.”

Polls

This poll is for the 'first' quarterly Non-fiction selection in our BT group. We had an outstanding response in nominations, with even more members holding off for the next quarter. I can only hope to see a book discussion that is half as lively.

Should we have a tie, there will be a very short 3 day additional poll to select one winner this quarter. However, if this non-fiction selection stays this popular - there could be multiple winners in the future. Time and thread participation will tell...
