The Woodlands, Texas Book Club
How did you get together? We first met in 1999 to discuss Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. We've read and discussed more than 70 books.
Where do you usually meet? We rotate meeting in members' homes once a month. The hostess of the month selects the book and provides snacks and drinks. Later, we gather with a glass of wine to discuss the book.
Which Oprah's Book Club selections have you read together?The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski, A Million Little Pieces by James Frey, The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen, Stolen Lives: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail by Malika Oufkir, House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III, Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende, Mother of Pearl by Melinda Haynes, Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts, She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb.
What are your all-time favorite selections? It would be hard for us to say what our favorite books are, as we are a group with diverse opinions. We do agree that the books we enjoy most are the ones that produce the most lively discussions. For example, Double Bind by Chris Bohjalain and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski created much debate late into the night.
Are you planning any special trips or events? Our December meeting is a time for fun. We bring white elephant gifts and then try to steal the best or worst from each other.
