At our book club meeting last night we voted on our spring selections. I thought I’d list the nominees here along with the books that got voted in for March, April, and May.
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
Be Near Me by Andrew O’Hagan
Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson and Anne Born
Getting Stoned with Savages by J. Maarten Troost
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian
And the winners are:
March: Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay 320 pages
April: The Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstein 336 pages
May: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini 432 pages
What do you think? Did we do ok? Did we miss an awesome title that we need to revisit when we vote on our choices for next summer?
We have each member bring their nominees, discuss them, then everyone votes on 3. The top 3 vote getters are the next three selections. I’d love to hear how other book clubs choose their books.
