Andrea had asked about book club books on Twitter, and since I have a list of books, I thought I would post, even though she was mostly asking M. (Is it butting in when the post is on Twitter?) :)

Here are the books that our book club has read that I would recommend.  Either they were good, great, or at least they sparked interesting discussions. I removed books that I didn't like or didn't lead to good discussions.
