ok... so we're restarting our book group in my neck of the woods.

Anyone with suggestions on books we should be reading?

Jeff Shaara. my all time favorite. Historical fiction... BUT, he takes the actual evens and with a whole bunch of facts makes history amazing.

james Rollings- takes science and makes a huge adventure. Many times over

Clive Cussler- Ditto to the above, no cussing or dirty stuff. Each book a good one.

that's it for now. I could go on and on. :-D

Lucky Red Hen said...

Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl... she's a NY Times food critic and it's her story about how she grew up with food. Pretty much my favorite book.

I just read Funny in Farsi and loved it. I can't wait to get my hands on the one Lucky recommended. I'm salivating already.
