and nominate A Clockwork Orange


message 5: by Susan (new)

Susan | 442 comments Unfortunately the Handmaid's Tale was the catch-up read in Dec. 2017, I thought I remembered it from when I first joined the group. I discovered a nice feature on the group bookshelf- at the very end of the line for each book, you can click "View Activity" and it shows dates the book was read by the group.

I'll second A Clockwork Orange and nominate A Man Called Ove.

Fantastic Alice Fox (fantasticalicefox) | 5 comments I second Alice as well. Currently reading Sheridan Smith's amazing narration with constant breaks to read annotations.

If it's nominated I might be able to finsih it by the end of Spetember!

It's one of few books that can be read slow.

Karen. Some may have caught up with it, but it hasn’t been an official read in more than a year so it qualifies.
