The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
At our successful meeting discussing The Hunger Games, Jen picked our next book: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.
This one is a mystery, so no book club questions yet since every one I looked at said it contained spoilers. Don't want to ruin the fun of reading! It's also part of a trilogy, so like The Hunger Games, if you like it, there's more to read.
A brief summary from Barnes & Noble: An engrossing debut thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has been an international sensation, a bestseller in its native Sweden and throughout Europe. It features an unforgettable heroine: a brilliant 24-year-old punk-goth computer hacker and private investigator named Lisbeth Salander. Together with Mikael Blomkvist, a financial journalist on a most unusual assignment, she tracks a serial killer through a dangerous maze of business, political, and family secrets.
Amanda P. has already sent an email with options for getting the book. I believe it is also available for the Kindle. (PS - Amber, I will bring your charger on Wednesday!)
Also, for the next meeting, everyone come prepared with a specific topic you would like to discuss. We'll start the meeting with everyone getting a 2-3 minute 'spotlight' on their own special topic.
One last thing, I just modified the blog settings so we will all get an email for each new blog post. If you would prefer NOT to get those emails, just let me know.
