    I asked for book suggestions and this group delivered! We had an open discussion about the things we were reading and have read in the past. If you are ever left with not knowing what to read next, here are some suggestions from your fellow book club members. In no certain order let’s get started…
    The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey
    The Dave Robicheaux book series by James Lee Burke (about a dozen in the series)
    V is for Vengeance (NOT VAGINA) by Sue Grafton (easy reading)
    Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield (English author, more magical writing)
    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (as well as the author’s other 2 books) by Stieg Larson
    Paradox by David Steece (nonfiction book about the mob)
    Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Larson (or any of her books really)
    Roots by Alex Haley
    The Genevieve Lenard book series by Estelle Ryan (autistic young woman working at an art museum)
    The Kate Shugak book series by Dana Stabenow (Alaska murder/mystery series)
    Watching You and also The Secret She Keeps by Michael Rowbotham
    The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan (set in Scotland)
    The Road Less Traveled by Scott Peck
    The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
    The Anna Pigeon book series by Nevada Barr (park ranger detective series)
    Anything written by Katherine Ryan Hyde
    Far Appalachia by Noah Adams
    Learned Optimism by Martin E.P. Seligman
    Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    1984 by George Orwell
    The Screw Loose Letters (I can’t seem to find this anywhere. Did I just make it up?)
    Fear Less vs Fearless by Malia Miles Lane (RVing author)
    Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
    Pussy (Now it wasn’t so crazy I said V is for Vagina, is it?) by Regena Thomashauer
    Anything written by Alexandra Stoddard
    That’s the list I had and a few notes here and there. If there is anything missing or incorrect, please let me know. Thanks everyone for the great suggestions!

    That is correct. Where the Crawdads sing is authored by Delia Owens. The next book on the list of books was titled Pussy and that is authored by Regena Thomashauer. I'm sorry for any confusion that may have caused and I hope that clarifies it. 

  • Re Where the Crawdads Sing — excellent book, great for a book club. According to the dust jacket, title page, copyright info, etc, her name is simply Delia Owens. What source has it as Owens Pussy?

    Oops— got this before the post I was responding to. Mea culpa.
