Ok. Are we still good with the "hidden gems" theme?? Anyone have a nomination? If not, I have several (may need a poll to decide!) Just let me know!

Schmidt Crazy by Han Nolan Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (The League of Princes, #1) by Christopher Healy The Raging Quiet by Sherryl Jordan Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick Boy21 by Matthew Quick Do any of these books strike anyone's fancy for the March read?? I may send one of these Around the World too if others are game for another round of that :)

I am thinking since March is "March Madness" Boy 21 Boy21 Boy21 by Matthew Quick might be a good pick because it is about basketball. It is a very quick read too so that helps. It is not for everyone because it is a little weird but then again so am I! p.s. you need not be a sports lover to read this one.

Jenny (juliababyjen) | 1572 comments I've been wanting to read Boy 21, so I vote for that!

Woot! I think Cassi told me she wanted to wait until March to read it last year so hopefully she will join in as well.

Oh yeah, I've been meaning to read that as well. :)


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Yay! It is very different but all Matthew Quick books are that I have read so far. Should get some good comments either way. Brigid if you have any hidden gems for April keep them in mind!
