    Default Suggest a book?

    I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but, I was thinking one member could post a title of a book they liked, and another member whose read the first book could make recommendations that somehow relate to the first book.

    is that too convoluted?

    I would make a suggestion, but I haven't read that yet, I plan too. Maybe after Fight Club, who knows.

    The House at Riverton. I know lots of great classics, but this is actually a good "new" book that did super well in the UK and Australia, but hasn't caught on in the States ...yet!

    Are you looking for fiction or non-fiction?

    fiction, non-fiction, doesn't matter. I always get to the point where I've read a book then I have a list of books I want to read but not at the moment, so I was thinking that if people made suggestions related to books someone has read. Like lets say I just read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and I really liked that book (which I have, and i did), and the next book I wanted to read was something similar to that, someone else might know of a book, that relates to it in some way. do you get it?

    Well Wade suggested 1984, so on that note I would highly recommend Orwell's non-fictional works like Road to Wigan Pier and especially Homage to Catalonia - which is about his combat experiences in the Spanish Civil War.

    and let's take Homage to Catalonia and follow up with Don Quixote!
