I am loving Septembers of Shiraz right now. Your group will enjoy it.

Kristen (bookclubclassics)

If you haven't already, be sure to check out Paper Cuts today (NYT's book blog) -- nice interview w/ Sofer...

not book-related, but ...
I love your way of upgrading the Country Time lemonade. Sounds like an idea for a contest or reality show, "Trick my pre-packaged beverage". Well, the title would have to be a bit catchier ...

On a bookish note, I'm reading The Septembers of Shiraz, too, and will join the discussion over at Everyday I Write the Book.

I am reading Septembers of Shiraz, It is a enjoyable read. Especially when you read about the culture of Iran during the revolution. I am sure you have been getting comments from all the readers of Everydayiwritethebook blog.

I read The Septembers of Shiraz in one day; it was an amazing read and I couldn't put it down. You'll all love it, too, I'm sure of it.

Swapna

I really want to read Unaccustomed Earth. Septembers of Shiraz sounds interesting, I'll have to check that one out!

Jessi

I just finished the Septembers of Shiraz and it was fantastic. I think it would create a really great discussion for a book club. Hope your group enjoys it.

My baseball moms book club also read Septembers and Unaccustomed Earth and enjoyed both of them very much. There are similarities between the experiences in both of those books it is interestign to compare the different immigrant experiences. I also highly recommend The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit!
The Lahiri short stories were so emotion-packed and the pacing of the Sofer was more leisurely.
Great choices.

LISTEN NOW TO AUTHORS DISCUSSING THEIR BOOKS

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
