Both of these sound really good. Thanks for sharing!


I saw "Manhunt" in stores the other day and am very tempted to read it. I've always been a Lincoln fan. Related, I really enjoyed Sarah Vowell's "Assassination Vacation."

They are having a great celebration today downtown for the re-opening of Ford's Theater


My group read "Manhunt" last fall. It was a great discussion and a departure from what we usually read. I'd highly recommend it... even if you aren't a Lincoln buff.

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.
