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:

The Empty Glass by J. I. Baker, see http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13078037-the-empty-glass

The Forgetting River: A Modern Tale of Survival, Identity, and the Inquisition by Doreen Carvajal, see the Amazon.com 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 http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11387491-life-in-a-jar

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