Two hundred reader-tested answers to the question “What have you read that’s good?”
The Readers’ Choice was the first book to feature titles based on the recommendations of multiple book clubs. A collection of two hundred favorites of more than seventy reading groups in various parts of the nation, it’s ideal for book group members looking for a good read, busy people seeking enjoyable books outside the bestseller lists, or anyone who wants to read more but isn't sure where to start.
Combining her skills as a book reviewer and a veteran book group member, Victoria Golden (McMains) provides brief, captivating profiles of a diverse mix of fiction and nonfiction. There are love stories and war stories, fantasy and political intrigue, biography and nature—and much more. Each profile highlights the unique traits of the book and ends with a few questions for group favorites as well as little-known gems that have been discovered and treasured. Indexes organize the entries by title and subject matter, helping readers find books that appeal to their interest. To learn the easy essentials of starting a book club, check out the introduction.
