At our November 2012 meeting we’ll plan to add 5-6 books to our reading list for 2013. Suggested at the last meeting (by Eloise based on Oprah‘s Recommended Reading List) are the following:

Almost Paradise by Susan Isaacs, see

The Empty Glass by J. I. Baker, see

The Forgetting River: A Modern Tale of Survival, Identity, and the Inquisition by Doreen Carvajal, see the description.

Also suggested (based on an email story several members had received) was:

Life in a Jar: The Irene Sandler Project by Jack Mayer, see

I’d also like to suggest we consider the following (a movie adaptation is being released very soon):

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, see

Please bring your list of suggested titles to the meeting or post them as comments on this blog posting or email me (Jonathan Bacon) with your suggestions.
