Book Club Selections List

This is a list of all the books read as part of the Mobileread Book Club so far, with links to the discussions. (Someone asked if we had a list, and we didn't, so I put one together.) I like the idea of "we don't have to stop discussing it when the month is over," but once the thread falls off the first page, it's hard to find again. This should make it easier to pick up the discussions later.

Categories are chosen by a combination of discussion and votes in the Book Clubs forum.
