Ok let's just skip over the part where I apologize about being a terrible human being by neglecting this book club... and go straight to the fun part, ok? I already feel guilty about it but if you feel the need, just go ahead and post about your disappointment... as long as you also suggest a book! Let's get some fun, light summer reading going on. What do you want to read while soaking some sun on the beach?

Amber (hippiefemme) | 9 comments I see that the club has read World War Z, but what about The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From the Living Dead by Max Brooks?

P.S. You don't need to feel guilty. If you had posted a book, I wouldn't have been able to read it due to finals and graduation. You've successfully alleviated my guilt, so now yours should go away, too!

Billy Jo (showmebillyjo) I'm terrible. I have zero ideas that aren't series.

Max (maxinvictus) | 23 comments The Name of the Wind. I have heard good things, and this would give me the excuse I need to bump some of my other stuff back ;D.

Jacobmartin | 11 comments I'd suggest either The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, or Train Man by Hitori Nakano.

If you pick the latter there's a free online translation that reflects how the internet posts that became the book originally appeared, but I wouldn't mind reading Oscar Wao again either.

Neither are series, and more people should read them.

I have a copy of Zombie Survival Guide, so that's still open.

Adam (trickstertao) | 3 comments The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I recommend this one. Twice.

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

I'll recommend Snow Crash again.

message 8: by Max (new)

Max (maxinvictus) | 23 comments I would like to recommend anything but Snow Crash.

message 9: by Amber (new)

Amber (hippiefemme) | 9 comments Any chance we'll vote on the book soon? I realize this is stating the obvious, but if we don't choose soon, we'll be picking a book for July (unless that was the plan in the first place, in which case you should completely disregard this comment).

Uh oh... Sorry about that boys and girls. My email has apparently been shoving my Goodreads notifications in my junk folder. :( I'll have a poll up today.

message 11: by Amber (new)

Amber (hippiefemme) | 9 comments It's been a while since we last had a group read. Wouldn't it be neat if we could go a full year without missing a month? We could make a joint resolution to do it!

message 12: by Max (new)

Max (maxinvictus) | 23 comments I'm in. It really all hinges on whether Denise wants to keep doing this.
