Just don't expect it to work 100% of the time. The best books, of any type and genre, deal with ideas. Ideas are the core of what books are about. At some point, if you intend to discuss a book, you need to discuss the ideas behind it.
Indeed, discussing a few of the titles on this month's book list might be tricky. It would be hard to discuss "Old Man's War", "The Sparrow", "The Man in the High Castle" or indeed "Childhood's End" without dipping into politics or religion.
