I voted for: The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak; The Princess Bride, by William Goldman; and other.

The other book I suggest would be:  Wizard's First Rule, by Terry Goodkind.  It is the fantasy novel which the TV show "Legend of the Seeker" is based upon.  It is a little strange at first, but then once it gets going, I found myself really into it.  I'm a hopeless fantasy lover.  It's undeniable.  I'm not even 1/4 of the way done, but I do enjoy it.  Maybe we could put that after the vampire lit book and open that group up to be of the fantasy/sci-fi variety?

Thanks,
Erich

    I love your picks.  Unfortunately, I have already read all but three of them so I picked the three that I haven't read.

    I have never been part of a book club before and would be interested in joining.  How do I begin?

    Welcome, truthseeker and congratulations on your first post.  Please go the the Introductions section and let us know something about yourself.

    We have several Book Klubs in progress right now.  Our Outlander Klub (led by me) is nearly over and we're probably about halfway through The Whiskey Rebels.  You can probably still catch up with Dead Until Dark or In Her Name which we are reading with the author, Mike Hicks. 

    Read the Klub Guidelines, and then check out the child boards for the book you want to read.  Each week the Klub leader will assign a set of chapters and the following post questions for those chapters.  Then we hop in and discuss. 

    We have two more books we are discussing with the authors.  Distant Cousins by Al Past starts next month and Gone for a Soldier by Jeff Hepple starts in April.  Just watch for the start up thread.

    I would be happy to do a book club for my book if there is any interest. If so, sometime over the summer or in the fall would be great. The introductory price is good until March 31st. (By summer, the second book will be available as well.)

    Actually, it is.  But this particular book isn't a political non-fiction book like previous ones.

    Looks like Princess Bride is ahead so far.  I have never read it and would definitely be interested.  I'm not always an active poster in book klubs, but I do enjoy other folks' opinions.  Thanks.

    Ive got a few books lined up that I really want to read, and I'm gonna wait to get acclimated in my new class scheduling before I can commit to a book klub, but I really look forward to it.

    Water for Elephants was my favorite book this past summer. I thought it was fantastic journey with some real memorable characters. Reading it again would be a pleasure.

    I'm new to the Boards and, of course, the Book Klub - so perhaps I'm asking a total "newb" question...but here I go anyway.

    Do you guys ever do a Book Klub using self-help books? 

    I really be interested in doing something like that, as well as getting in on the next regular Book Klub as well.

    Just got a Kindle latest generation.  My addiction is already so strong I think I should go ahead and get a few of those 12-step meetings under my belt.

    We haven't had a real book club for quite a while but maybe someone would be interested in starting one with you.  I am not really into those so i wouldn't join.

    Always wanted to read "The Princess Bride" and also Erich I think that "Wizard's First Rule" might be a good idea. Was into that shoe for awhile but just haven't had time to watch recently
