Book Club List

“I’ve got more than one membership to more than one club and I owe my life to the people that I love.” -Ani Difranco

So a few people have suggested that we should figure out farther in advance what books we plan to read, so people can qualify for free shipping on Amazon and stuff. A few people sent me suggestions and I pared them down into the following six books:

The Purity Myth – Jessica Valenti
A People’s History of the United States – Howard Zinn
Gang Leader For A Day – Sudhir Venkatesh
The Commitment – Dan Savage
Panic: The Story of Modern Insanity – Michael Lewis
Omnivore’s Dilemma – Michael Pollan

I think picking books in three month increments is reasonable, so pick three from this list and let me know what we want to do.

For “What Is Marriage For?,” HDW has generously offered to host. CeeDee over at has offered to write one review. I’ll write one as well. I’m trying to get one non-blogger friend of mine to also review, but he has yet to commit.
