Starting in January, I'm going to start my own online book club where I (and whoever would like to join me) will read a selected book a month and then discuss it on my blog.
Since I finished school last April, I find myself wasting my time after I put my kids to bed. Ideally, that would be the perfect time to have one-on-one time with my husband, but it's also his time to work on his Master's degree. So what do I do? I watch what ever trash I can find on the tele, sit around thumbing through old Pottery Barn catalogs drooling, or worst of all, I find myself using food as a cure for boredom--I refuse to go up a size in jeans and currently my size ?'s are getting quite synched around the waste line (and every other line). For these reasons (and because I find my vocabulary waning with each day) I have decided to start a book club--even if I'm the only participant.
So here's my question for you: What books are you interested in reading or what books have you enjoyed enough that you'd read again (or at least pretend that you'd read it again)?
General Guidelines: I wouldn't mind getting more familiar with the classics, reading an interesting biography, a good self help/ parenting book or even the 7th Harry Potter whenever that comes out. I want books that will engage my mind and keep me interested--oh, one more thing--No Louis Lamoure. Other than that, I'm all ears to your suggestions.
