The Quirky & Co. Book Club

I have never been a part of a book club. From my excessive (and, boy, do I mean excessive) television viewing habit, I have come to assume that most book club meetings consist of (usually) a bunch of women sitting around who only came for the snacks and didn't actually read the book.

Dear reader, I know that you are much more intelligent than these said women, even though you probably really enjoy snacks.So, I propose that the super brainy readers of this blog (which means all of you, of course) come together for a book club. Except, I think it really needs a better name than book club. How about "The Let's Read Really Good Books and Be Soooo Much Smarter Than Everyone Else Club(or not...)? Any suggestions?

Here are some books I'm interested in reading:

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
by David Sedaris.

I Was Told There'd be Cake
by Sloane Crosley

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
by Stephen Chbosky

If you are interested in joining or have a book suggestion, please leave a comment!

P.S. Unfortunately, our book club will not have snacks -sigh-. There are just some things the Internet will never be able to do...

Have you read the twilight books ?
p.s. I love your writing, you're just so funny!

Thanks everyone! Keep the suggestions coming. Hopefully we can get this rolling in the next week or so.

haha thanks. Yes, I have read the Twilight books and I have become obsessed with them. For a long time, my sister tried to make me read them, but I was basically like "Puh-lease, I'm not going to read your silly fad vampire love books. Now, excuse me while I go read War and Peace for the 12th time."

But then I was curious what all the hullabaloo was about, so I started reading them and the rest is history :].
