I started using the book right away and it comes along now to every meeting! If you have a book group, this is a must have!
The book is divided into sections with suggestions for all types of literary selections. The first deals with the standard book club favorites, classics in literature, British selections, memoirs, noir classics, African American literature, and enjoyable non-fiction selections. Sandwiched in each section are recipes, suggestions for discussion, author interviews and anecdotes, and just about anything else a book club could want to make the time enjoyable and enlightening, everything a book club should be. Books like this can spice up an existing club or make the meeting of a new club an event to be anticipated.
Of course you don't need to belong to a book club to enjoy this book. It has great suggestions for personal reading ranging from the best known works to lesser known books that escape notice. However, when it comes to the recipes, they look too good resist and the temptation to form a book group, just to try the recipes, may be too great to resist.
