How many of you are in an actual, in-person book group? I’ve always thought of blogs as the perfect book group and have not had the desire to start one of my own. I also had a disappointing experience when I belonged to one a few years ago. I really hated most of the books we read and didn’t want to repeat that experience. However, I’ve been feeling a bit lonely lately and want to expand my circle of friends so I put a general invitation on Facebook for people to assemble at my house the last week in February to discuss State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. I wasn’t expecting very many people to respond, but I am pleased to say that there will be eight of us gathering for the discussion! I’m really looking forward to the day as State of Wonder is a marvelous and fascinating book that I’m sure will lead to an energetic discussion.
Do you have any recommendations for books that are perfect for discussion groups? What books would you like to read in a book group?
