Lit Bit Book Club

The Lit Bit Book Club is currently on hold.

     Welcome to the Lit Bit Book Club Page! I figured this would be a nice spot to accumulate a list of recommended books to read for the club. Naturally I have a mental list going, but it is nice and convenient to get it down on “paper” somewhere, so I don’t forget. I will also do my best to gather up any other books people recommend to me here, whether they recommend via Twitter, a comment on Lit Bit, in person, over chat, etc. So here goes:

     Native Son by Richard Wright
     To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
     Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood
     The Once and Future King by T.H. White
     Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
     Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
     The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
     Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
     A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
     Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik
     The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
     One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
     A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
     Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
     A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
     Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut
     Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
     The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
     Lila: An Inquiry into Morals by Robert M. Pirsig

  1. These books sound like interesting choices. I should be finished with my current reads by next month, and would like to read along with the club.

  2. I would be interested in any of those you listed. As for my suggestions: You’ve probably read this one, but I just received a copy of The Brothers Karamazov for my birthday, so that would be nice, or perhaps The Origin of Species. Also, I love James Herriot books.

  3. @eggplanteer – Yay! I’m so excited about people wanting to join up and read along with us. Welcome to the club! πŸ˜€

    @meganice9 – I have The Brothers Karamazov, but I actually haven’t read it yet, so I am definitely keeping that on the list. I will have to add these to our list. πŸ™‚

  4. I have a book suggestion: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It is the first book in a 5 part series.

    I’ve never read it, and would definitely be interested.

  5. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is FANTASTIC.
    Written 30+ years ago, the insight in human nature is spot on.
    BTW, This book is not a motorcycle manual. πŸ˜‰
