Hello all! Starting up the monthly discussions for March 2018 book-of-the-month suggestions. This discussion is for a brand new category called BOOKSHELF CATCH-UP.

This is a catch-up book club, after all. For this category, you can nominate any book that the group has previously read. For a list of books that the group has previously read and discussed, please see the bookshelf.

The following books are NOT eligible as we have reread them as a group within the last twelve months:
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I'll start off by suggesting a group read that I personally missed - A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

Marcos Kopschitz | 1765 comments Seconded.


Renee (elenarenee) I will second Tale of Two Cities

I love that book

Quick question, How many books may I second?

One more question, How do I get the phrase, It was the best of times and the worst of times, to stop looping in my head?

Hi Isabel - we actually have not read The Catcher in the Rye so it is not eligible for this category. Normally I would send you over to the Classics BOTM thread, but we're currently taking nominations for Nonfiction books only. If you don't mind holding on to this nomination until the end of the month, you can suggest for Classics, thanks!

Monique | 159 comments I second One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest


message 50: by Zeljka (new)

Zeljka | 332 comments I second The Martian
