Brandon's Nominations - Round 2

I wrote the following entry before we read the sparrow, but I still like it so I'm going with it.

As our book club name and roster implies, we've lately been reading a lot of books by, about, and for the dudes.

Time for some variety, I say. Time, in fact, to read a book written by, and starring, a woman. Here are my nominees:

Housekeeping by Marylinne Robinson
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Rebecca by Daphne Dumaurier
Sula by Toni Morrison
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf

New round of nominations

Excited to see the gang again on Thursday night. Here are some options to consider for whichever month falls to me:

Hellhound on His Trail
The Rent Collector
The Shipping News
The Princess Bride
The Last Battle

Last attempt failed. Trying again.

Ready to eat and talk The Sparrow? How's next week looking for all of us? Maybe Thursday (1/16) at 7:00.

The Sparrow

Hey Gents,
Who's ready to get some grub and talk about The Sparrow? I know I am.

Alternate plan: get some grub and not talk about The Sparrow.

Would next week work for everyone? Maybe Thursday at 7:00.
