  3. Political books

    I'm looking for books that have strong political messages, for a discussion group I'm creating for a group of teens between high school and college. Here's the kind of thing I'm looking for: Thinking Big: Progressive Ideas for a New Era (http://thinkingbigthebook.com/) - note that it is...

  4. Poll Poll: Book Club Vote

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy The forest by Edward Rutherfurd Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil Not sure how to do a poll, but these are the three recommended books for the new book club. How do you vote? I think leaving the polls open all day Friday should be enough?

  5. Hitchhiker's Guide

    I'm a slug. I'm never going to get this book read unless I'm forced, so let's get this book club started. I'm sure others have read the book recently? I read it years ago, and I'm finding it almost new. I love the way Adams uses word twists and such in his humor.

  6. Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series

    Has anyone else gotten addicted to these? I want to discuss the Morelli/Ranger thing and also express my outrage that they want to use Reese Witherspoon in the upcoming movie.

  7. Dean Koontz

    I've been reading more Dean Koontz lately because my dad's been pressuring me to. I find the stories are incredibly suspensful, and he can tell a scary story concisely which I am starting to appreciate more, but I am also irritated that in every one of his stories he tries to inject some blatant...

  8. Book Reviews

    FG has a movie review thread so why not a book review thread. Rate on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being outstanding. I'll start with the last book I read. (I've tried this on another forum and nobody joined me so I just review books by myself. :wah: Please don't make me look foolish here too).:-6 ...

  9. Dan Brown's new novel

    The Solomon Key is available for pre-order on Amazon. Don't know when it will be released. It's about Freemasons (surprise, surprise) and takes place largely in D.C. I think. Here's hoping Brown eventually gets that chip off his shoulder about the Catholic Church and gives us a new idea (three...

  10. If Only One Classic

    Pick any scenerio: you're on a deserted island or whatever and can only take one classic with you which would it be and why. For the purpose of this thread we'll consider anything written prior to the previous, oh, thirty years. Mine btw is Robinson Crusoe. I'll tell you why when I have more time.

  12. Any other Stephen King fans out there?

    I believe I have read all of his books, but I am not into the "Tower" series. "The Stand" is my favorite. Now, I know book titles are supposed to be under-lined, but I have not mastered that technique yet on my computer. :confused:

  14. Orwell's 5 Rules for Effective Writing

    Verbosity takes a lot of skill. Grammatical rule sets must be in place or a long rambling piece can leave the audience totally confused and dumbfounded. It alienates people. I write prose and poetry as a hobby but want to branch into short stories. I like George Orwell's philosophy on...
