Choosing books to read
I had asked what we should make of this new Book Buddies and got these replies (as you add your ideas, I'll move them into this post so we'll have a list all in one place):
I say we be a modern classics group. Too many other groups tackling the classics. :)

I like the idea of modern classics. A theme would be okay, too, if that's what the group wants.

Modern Classics sounds good to me. I am looking to reach out in new genres and see what fits. This is going to be so much fun.

Modern classics it is then. I'm not sure what those are to be honest, I'm guessing they are newly written books with substance? If that's what they are, I'm fine with it!

Wait, Margreet! That's only three votes. You may be suggesting a new category ... newly written books with substance. I think this is a good way of putting it.

I like what category Margreet is suggesting. "Newly written books with substance". I enjoy reading those so much.
In fact, lately I have been reading many interesting books. Currently I am reading My Father's Daughter by Hannah Pool which is a biography of a Eritrean orphan who was adopted at 6 months by a British Missionary and after 30 years, she reunites with her father and other siblings, it is so well written. Even with out reading together, I am discussing my readings with you. I think you guys are my book mates, hmmm is that a new label?

I read what ever I can get my hands on. So what ever the majority decides is fine with me.
