The #spbkchat list: Book Groups

Not a very long list this week. For the first hour or so, we mostly talked about book groups themselves. Whether we belong to any groups. What we like, or don't like, about them. And those of us in a book group shared our experiences. But then, of course, we did move on to books, those that we'd read for a book group, and some that we think would make for good book group discussions.
So, here's the list:


Eat, Pray, Love
The Handmaid's Tale
The Kite Runner
The Jane Austen Book Club
Mao's Last Dancer
Water for Elephants
The Help
Lord of the Rings
Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King
The Shipping News
Suite Francaise
Tiger Mother
State of Wonder
Bel Canto
The Slap
Mister Pip
The Tao of Pooh
Never Let Me Go
When We Were Orphans
The Remains of the Day
An Artist of the Floating World
Still Missing
Never Knowing
The Sea


Annie Proulx
Natsume Soseki
Ann Patchett
Sheila Jeffreys
JR Ward
Chevy Stevens
Nick Hornby
Kazuo Ishiguro
