Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 414 comments I'm thinking that after the holidays we need something light and easy ...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1) by Roald Dahl Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


Melissa (ladybug) (ladybugsdoodles) | 198 comments I would love to nominate: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett . A book that I could read over, and over, etc... :)

Both would be a good start to the year. I loved The Secret Garden and would probably read it again. Have never read Charlie. Love the Gene Wilder movie. Looking forward to either. :-)

Our poll ended in a tie. So I've made the executive decision to have these books as our January & February group reads.

Since it was nominated first, we will read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl in January & The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett in February. Our group read discussions start on the 20th day of the month. Looking forward to both of these.
