Greeting book lovers!

It's about time for the candidates for the next discussion to throw their hats in the ring!

Suggest whatever book you would like to read next!

My first suggestion for this cycle: The Princes of Ireland.

My suggestion would be Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time book 1: Eye of the World (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eye_of_the_World)
Personally I think it's a classic, better than LOTR.. but that's just my opinion :)

My other vote goes for Tale of Two Cities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Tale_of_Two_Cities)... actually that one gets my first vote.

I suggest The Pillars of the Earth (http://www.amazon.com/Pillars-Earth-Ken-Follett/dp/0451207149/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1209441631&sr=1-1) by Ken Follett. I'm not really a fan but I've been wanting to give it another go since the second book has come out.

Did he also write The Third Twin, or am I thinking of someone else?

My favorite book is The Beggar King and the Secret of Happiness (http://www.amazon.com/Beggar-King-Secret-Happiness-Story/dp/1565125126/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210063337&sr=8-1). It may be to 'quick' of a read than what you're looking for, but it is a fun book and would be great to discuss the stories contained within.

Heh, still waiting for the voting thread :whatgives I loved the Wheel of Time series, but I would also suggest the Sword of Truth (http://www.terrygoodkind.com/his_works/) series by Terry Goodkind...I can't really decide which would be the best (They all have something to impart), so i suppose book 1, Wizard's First Rule (http://www.terrygoodkind.com/his_works/wizards_first_rule.html) would be the best. ABC is even making a mini-series out of it this fall called Legend of the Seeker...whether or not they can convey the epic quality of the storyline is another question.

I read Pillars of the Earth some years ago when it was first released...don't remember much except that it was a great read.

Edit: Another inspiring read was James Herriot's series beginning with the compilation novel All Creatures Great and Small. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Herriot#Books)

Sorry about that. Perhaps you should start the voting thread. :)

I have neither the time nor the fast Internet connection to run the club properly any longer. :(

You may then take over. I have not had the time to run this properly for some months now.

All hail the new Book Club mistress! :fpraise:
