Scott's Nominations

I decided to include something from a variety of genres, though I have included two non-fiction titles which is unusual for me. Aside from the two non-fiction books, I am very familiar with each author, but have deliberately picked titles I have not yet read so I will be equally pleased with whatever wins. Here goes.

In Sunlight And In Shadow - Mark Helprin

Elantris - Brandon Sanderson

Team Of Rivals - Doris Kearns Goodwin

Down The Great Unknown - Edward Dolnick

Childhood's End - Arthur C. Clarke

A Perfect Spy - John Le Carre

September Nominations

I'm going to go ahead and post these suckers. I'll host our meeting in September. I dare you to find a book among these 6 that won't blow your mind.

The Cyberiad - Stanislav Lem

The Heart of the Matter - Graham Greene

Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoevsky

World War Z - Max Brooks

Isaac's Storm - Erik Larson

The Double Helix - James Watson

Another round?

My friend Dan Reed asked if we were still doing that man's book club. Not sure where we left off, but I'll put out some suggestions there and let you guys rank them for our next read.
