12 Months of Book Nerds

Book Club: Although this may have started off as just another overly-scheduled reason to get together and drink wine, our Tuesday night book club has turned into one of my favorite nights of the month. Headed into year two, we decided to revamp the book selection process and put together a calendar of books. This list will allow us to reserve books at the Chicago Public Libraries, read ahead on vacations and, most importantly, appease our type A personalities.

In case you want to join in virtually, below you'll find the list of books through November. Anyone have a suggestion for December?

January: "Three Cups of Tea," by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin

February: "I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie," Pamela Des Barres

March: "Olive Kitteridge," by Elizabeth Strout

April: "Robber Bride," by Margaret Atwood

May: "Half-Broke Horses," by Jeannette Walls

June: "Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble and Coming of Age in the Bronx," by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

July: "The 27s: The Greatest Myths of Rock and Roll," by Eric Segalstad

August: "Say You're One of Them," by Uwem Akpan

September: "Too Much Happiness," by Alice Monro

October: "South of Broad," by Pat Conroy

November: "I Was Told There'd Be Cake," by Sloane Crosley

Happy reading!
