Book club book picks for 08-09

My book club had determined that we'd read only award-winners this year. Here's what we've picked:

Nov: The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts, Louis de Bernieres
Dec: One of Ours, Willa Cather
Jan: All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren
Feb: The Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemingway
March: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Susanna Clarke
April: Watership Down, Richard Adams
June: The Human Stain, Philip Roth
June: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Michael Chabon
July: Snow Falling on Cedars, David Guterson
August: To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
Sept: The Echo Maker, Richard Powers

I've read 75 pages of Kavalier & Clay, just enough to see that I liked it, so I stopped reading and pitched it and will read it with the book club.

JSMN is interesting. Couldn't get through ATKM.

JSMN was one of my other pitches.

BTW, our Barnes & Noble has hardcover copies of JSMN on sale for $7. Got to be one of the best book deals ever (by the page, at least; and maybe for the entertainment value).
