While i have seen some great books that seem interesting, i wouldnt totally only. I can only read a book if it is interesting to ME, doesnt matter the author.

But that being said, i would participate in the club anyways. I am working on a heavy book right now and i only read at work or if i am in the car waiting on some or something. I dont read more then one book, i see it as a waste, but i wish yall good luck in yalls readings regardless.

I'm in. Which ever book sounds good to most of you all is fine.

BTW lizdlt, I noticed you had Jorge Amado--you should check out his books. They are very good stories and are a good source that helps bring history to life. I read his work for a history class--very, very good.
