What were your favorite Book Club books so far?

So.... its been a bit over a year since we have been running the book club. I have some questions:

What were your favorite 3 books? Why?

What books surprised you the most (you liked them more than expected, or disliked more than expected)?

Have any of the books caused you to seek out more books by that author?

For me it was "The Professor and the Madman". How they made the dictionary and the facts about it were most interesting to me... I had no idea.

Also, Refuge was really excellent. I had no idea how great this book would be.

For me, yes. I ended up reading ALL of the Sherlock Holmes books. I also read all of the Chaos Chronicles by Carver and I also read Penal Colony by Richard Herley and plan to read The Tide Mill and perhaps some others.

So, I am extremely pleased with the new authors I have discovered via the book club.

Thanks to all for participating in it with me.
