The only one I think I will pass up is June's selection.
It actually sounds interesting to me, but being the wimp that I am, it'd give me nightmares. 
I'm especially looking forward to Apr, May, and Oct.

I love hearing what other book clubs are reading!
I have read "Two From Galilee" and love it.
"The Good Earth", liked that too, but was a sad book to me.
I did not care for "Heaven is Here" at all!
I am reading and enjoying "Happiness Project" right now.
I would also like to read Sacajawea!
Lizzy's bookclub is reading "Remembering Isaac".

They all sound pretty good. I am with you on the June one. Those kind of stories tear me up.

Rebecca~ I'm very curious why you didn't like Heaven is Here. I'd also love to know what you think about The Happiness Project when you finish it. That was one of my all time favorite books ever.

Scrapally~ I thought you might be a member of this 2nd book club. I was hoping so!

Darlene~ Thanks for the heads up on Good Earth. Makes me wonder how many other good ones I've been missing.

Karen~The June one would leave me with images in my head I don't think I could get rid of.

I read The Good Earth in high school and remember that I enjoyed that and of course upon your recommendation I read The Happiness Project and enjoyed that. Let me know if you like Sacajawea. I don't know why but I've always been fascinated by her.

Sue said...

The Good Earth is a good one, as I recall. Haven't read the rest except Nie's book.

Looking at the list it seemed like all the books were the types you like! How funny that June was your skip while that was the one that stood out for me. Maybe because my Dad & his family were there but he never talked about his experiences. I would love to hear first hand how they really felt. The only person I met who was there was at Carlene Mitchel's store one day & she told me she was so young; she had no idea she was in a prison camp at all. As far as she was concerned life was great! Anyways...thanks for sharing!
