That surprises me, as Angels is newer than Sushi.

Just wanted to mention that someone is supposed to be reviewing Why Girls Are Weird for the Paper Jam section, so there should (eventually) be a discussion on that anyway.

If a Marian Keyes book is chosen, I could probably get in contact with her and ask her to answer any questions; I've met her plenty of times through work stuff, and she is absolutely lovely and told me to always come to her if I needed any quotations from a writer! In fact, I told her about Chicklit(.com, not the genre, obviously) ages ago, so maybe she's checking us out...

Okay. Thanks for letting me know, deborah.

Bear--You are the envy of many a Chickliterati! That would be great.

How about Good Omens? It's funny and it's by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Any Neil Gaiman book would be good - I've got a large unread pile. I need an excuse to bump them up on my reading list.

Good Omens is on the list of possibilities, but it's battling things out in my head with Christopher Moore's Lamb at the moment...I don't think we can do two irreverent God books in one year...heh. So, we'll see.

And, the winner is...

After much contemplation, I've put our reading list together. I'm quite happy with the selections, and I hope you all are too.

All book discussions will begin on the 15th of each month.

I've noted paperback publication dates on the three books still only available in hardcover. They should become available to us in paperback editions two months (or more) prior to their discussion date.

If, for unforeseen reasons, they aren't, or if their (paperback) cost is not within our price guidelines, do not fear. I have fine alternative selections in mind!

As we head into summer, and it seems like Tam Lin is just impossible for some of you to find, let me know, and we'll change August's book.

Without further preamble, here are the 2004 Book Club selections:

January: Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, by Christopher Moore

February: The True Sources of the Nile, by Sarah Stone

March: Caramelo, by Sandra Cisneros

April: Set This House in Order, by Matt Ruff (2/04 paper)

May: Unless, by Carol Shields

June: A Fine Balance, by Rohinton Mistry

July: Hotel Paradise, by Martha Grimes

August: Tam Lin, by Pamela Dean

September: The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory

October: The Good House, by Tananarive Due (8/04 paper)

November: Away, by Jane Urquhart

December: Oryx and Crake, by Margaret Atwood (5/04 paper)

Oh yay, Kivrin, that looks like a great set of books! I almost picked up Caramelo yesterday, will have to go back and grab it. And way to start the year off with a funny book in the dark cold times for us in the northern hemisphere. Does Lamb count as beach reading?

Love the list Kirvin -- thanks for including so many great Canadian authors. I've read many of the choices, but I'm looking forward to re-reading them and discussing them.
