I also like the idea of supporting some contemporary women writers..I'm tired and can't think of one tonight except Annie Proulx and Barbara Kingsolver...but I'm open to any suggestions!

I also like the idea of revisiting some of the classics. Then again...there are SO many books on my "want to read" list.

I'm also in for visiting the classics. Definitely worth the re-read and also easily available.

I will be interested to see what other team members come up with and happy to go along with whatever is decided. Off the top of my head I was thinking of women writers I've enjoyed; those who write realistic women characters.

One is Canadian writer Margaret Laurence - perhaps her "Jest of God"?

I also like "So Big" by Edna Ferber. The historical setting is fascinating as well as the strength of the central character Selina.

A few of us have suggested reading some of the classics that Shapiro mentions in *A Feast of Words.* I'm in!

Every month I've been asking one member of the team to choose the BOM.

We've been reading books about food since this team started, but I'd like to broaden the spectrum.

Let's use this forum to SHOUT OUT a book that you'd like to see featured in the BOM. And we'll get to them one by one.

What books do want to read together?! emoticon
