In celebration of their 10th anniversary, ReadingGroupGuides is sponsoring a contest! They are giving away fifty $200 gift certificates, and all we have to do to enter is compose a list of our top 10 Favorite Discussion books. At our last meeting, we were talking about ways to give back to our community and brain storming about some of the different literacy programs that could use our help. This could be a terrific kick start for us.  Entrys must be in by the end of August, so in order to have plenty of time to discuss and or vote, lets start working on it today!

One of my favorite Discussion books was: Replay by Ken Grimwood. I loved the whole “what if you could do it all over again” discussion!

What were some of your favorites?

Joan says: There were so many good discussion books that we have read.  Four titles come to my mind quickly, but as I write this entry I think of so many others.I like reading historical fiction books that I can learn from as well as enjoy the storylines.

  1. I really enjoyed books that I had both trouble putting down but also enlightened me about the topics and time periods they were discussing. I loved The Glass Castle because it was both bizarre and true, The Help (thought we had a great discussion on that one regarding prejudice views) and although I don’t even remember the book that well, I remember loving Water For Elephants and recommending it to my sister. It was kind of off beat but there was something really neat about looking into the circus world.
