WNBA Great Group Reads 2012

Are you looking for a book club selection?  Did you know that October is officially National Reading Group Month (did you ever wonder who is in charge of assigning what events to what day or month?) I had a terrific opportunity through the WNBA (not the women's basketball association -- but the Women's National BOOK Association) to read a slew of books this summer and participate in the selection of their 2012 Great Group Reads. Here's the final list, which was just announced this week:

Great Group Reads
National Reading Group Month Selects
Great Group Reads

2012 Selections

The Absolutist by John Boyne*
An Age of Madness by David Maine*
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan‐Philipp Sendker*
Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall
Boleto by Alyson Hagy
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman*
Equal of the Sun by Anita Amirrezvani
Faith by Jennifer Haigh
A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
I Married You for Happiness by Lily Tuck
In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner
The O'Briens by Peter Behrens

Running the Rift by Naomi Benaron
Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward*
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

I didn't read all these books -- we were divded into reading groups --but the books I starred* I did read and wholeheartedly recommend for a thought-provoking book club selection.  More about all the selections, including reading guides for book clubs can be found atwww.nationalreadinggroupmonth.org
 
Happy reading!!

Truly, Caroline

Hello there, with the weather being dreadful this morning so I preferred to call in sick and have a look around the net instead, I must say it was a truly fabulous event for me as I called in at this webpage. I hope you don't mind if I applaud you for the quality of the work you have done here and to wish you good luck with it as you grow going forward. It was a pleasure to surf your webpage and I will probably be dropping by again before long to see how you are doing. Thanks a lot and I shall see you here again soon - Stewart Spanish

Oh my god, Chad Harbach is one of the new writers I'm starting to admire. There are many young talents trying to show their works as writers. And some of them are pure geniuses.

I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
