Leah (killlashandra) | 1 comments Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if people wanted to maybe start a book club here about reading books that take place in or mention or are related to New Mexico.

Just curious.

Thanks,
Leah

When I lived in Tijeras I started to read Willa Cather and also some books about Georgia O'Keeffe. Altho I had to move I am still very interested in NM.

Willa Cather
Georgia O'Keefe

I just finished a novel, The Desert Remains by Charles Poling, set in northern NM. It earned high praise from Tony Hillerman when it was published. Here's my review: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...
Charles was a friend and classmate in my senior year of high school 35 years ago, and we'd lost touch after that - he recently tracked me down on LinkedIn, and I noticed on his profile there that he'd written this book. It's one of the best novels I've read in quite a while.

Elicia I think that is a great idea. I recently read The laws of Harmony by Judith Hendricks. It's a wonderful book. I'm currently reading Tularosa. I'm new to goodreads and am interested in following a book club.
