Book Ideas. Vote Now!

Regarding a book for the nameless book club...

I've had three suggestions for books and thought of some myself, so please let me know if you've read any of these or prefer one over the other or have other ideas:

Fiction
1. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, Mark Haddon
2. The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
3. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson
4. The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
5. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
6. A Mercy, Toni Morrison

Nonfiction
1. A Reason for God, Tim Keller
2. Outliers, Malcom Gladwell
3. The Post-American World, Fareed Zakaria
4. Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace... One School at a Time, Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin

If you don't have a decent public library or don't want to buy the book, check out Bookswim . It's the book version of netflix.

Let me know what you think and we can get started!

Kite Runner is the only one I've read, so that's got my vote!

I read it last year almost all in one day (Thanksgiving, to be exact)... it is heart-wrenching, but a great write/read. Haven't seen the movie...

I "read" (listened) to curious incident and I've read kite runner and jekyll and hyde...
I'm more of a non-fiction junkie myself and since I'll probably read the gladwell book on my own, I vote not that one. :)
