Let's get the suggestions rolling
Please suggest no more than THREE books for our first literary outing. we'll vote next week, have next weekend to pick up the title, and then begin reading.

OK? I'll begin:

The Other Boleyn Girl

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

And, in honr of the season and because it's a pretty quick read, The Halloween Tree

Your turn!

I've already read The Other Boleyn Girl, but it's definitely worth a re-read.

We could do "Fragile Things," since it's all shiny and new.

Middlexsex.

I'd be happy to read any of the other suggestions, though. They all look good. Pretty sure I read Connecticut Yankee as a child, but it would doubtless read differently now.

There should only be one x in <i>Middlesex</i>

Wow, way to typo! And I even thought I had proofed that comment. I suppose everyone should know right away that I am careless and prone to many many typographical errors.

OK, I would like to suggest:

Strangewoodhttp:// by Christopher Golden

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman

I would like to read "The Halloween Tree" though too! I have also read "The Other Boleyn Girl" but have no problem reading it again.

Ah, to keep in the spirit of the season, my suggestions:

1. A Night In The Lonesome October Roger Zelazny. Though I have read this before, it is certainly worth another read.

2. Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, H. P. Lovecraft. Oddly, I've had this book for years but nwever read it. Kinda keeps with the whole Wold-Newton theme I've got going.

3. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mister Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson. Again, another work that I should have read but didn't

I guess I shouldn't make book recommendations after reading League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. ;)
