That's a great list--books I've read and enjoyed this year, and books I've been meaning to check out for far too long.

Yay, Christopher Moore! Tombo and I started Lamb a couple of days ago, and I've almost hurt myself laughing.

Wow. I love this list. Thanks for putting it together for us, Kivrin!

I've read four of these and six of the rest were already on my TBR list. I've had A Fine Balance kicking around unread for ages now.

I'm so happy.

ETA: I still have an extra copy of Tam Lin that I think I can handle parting with ;\) . It's yours for the cost of shipping. My e-mail is in my profile. Please post here if you are going to be e-mailing me so that I don't miss your request. Thanks.

Whew...me too, says Kivrin, wiping the sweat from her brow...

The whole book choosing thing is way more difficult than it would appear. I'm glad I chose well. Thank you all for your very supportive selves! I'm looking forward to each and every book. ( Selena--I've only read four of them too!)

Wow! What a great list Kivrin. Thanks for all of your hard work on putting that together. I'm just so excited as most of the books were already on my "to be read" list.

That looks like an absolutely fantastic book selection. I've been wanting to pick up Lamb for a while now, and this is an excellent excuse. I'm so excited that it's first on the list!

(And anyone can join in on these book club discussions, right?)

Wow. You all are so great. Thanks for the praise. I love it. I made the list with all of you in mind.

Affilare--yes, anyone can chime in on the book club discussions. And that goes for the Classics, and the new Nonfiction clubs also. Just check the starting discussion date because that will vary from club to club. In the Book Club, we'll start discussions mid-month.

As I said in the Nonfiction Club thread: September is almost half over, and pretty soon it will be time to announce the selections for the 2005 Fiction Book Club. So now's the time to start making your suggestions for next year's list. Thanks!

I want to recommend that we read "The Island Walkers" by John Bemrose. It was short listed for the Booker and possibly the Giller, and well, it just looks quite interesting. Chapters info
