What do you think about my choices? I was a little surprised at how many book club books and best sellers I've read and really enjoyed. I always kind of think that I'm not entrenched in modern society, especially when it comes to my literary tastes, but I am more than I thought. I never look at bestseller lists, I'm not part of a book club. So I was just surprised there were so many of those on here! But they are bestsellers and book club books for a reason, because they're good! If you are interested in any of these and want to know more I would be glad to tell you if you ask! Maybe someday I will get around to reviewing them or posting more information about each.

Nice list. I liked Water for Elephants and loved Time Travelers Wife and the Harry Potter books. I didn't care for A Thousand Splendid Suns and hope to like The Kite Runner better. This is my year to read the Twilight series. I'm amazed at the response I get when I say that. So many fans out there.
