Hello fellow readers. Here are the books I will be nominating on June 15th, one of which we will select to read August 17. I read each of these books for the first time in the last 3 months and each earned a stellar **** in my 5-star rating system. The Tortilla Curtain and Where's You Go, Bernadette were recommended to me by my former book discussion group in Boulder, CO. A Walk in the Woods has been staring at me from a bookshelf for about 5 years and I finally decided to read it (instead of unpack). I am nominating it just in case I'm wrong about "everyone" having read it except me - because the film version will be released Labor Day weekend.
The Tortilla Curtain, 1995, T.C. Boyle. Fiction. Although T.C. Boyle has written more than two dozen books, we've not read anything by him (not sure if he's been nominated).
A Walk in the Woods, 1998, Bill Bryson. NonFiction. In 2005 we read A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
