    CareCure Book Discussion Group

    How many of you would be interested in a CareCure book reading and discussion group? We could pick a book a month (possibly by voting on a group of suggested titles) and discuss it in a thread as we progress. What do you think?

          Good idea, like it too. Well, as long as we don’t start with the Bible, we could save that one until later if the discussions will not pick up on the other books

            Awesome

            Shall we make a list of books to vote on? Plan to start reading in Sept. so everyone can get a copy of the first book we choose? I'm open to almost every type and genre.

            Here's a few books I plan on reading soon:

            The Prophet - Kahlil Gibran
            Nine-Headed Dragon River - Peter Matthiessen
            Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life - Barbara Kingslover
            The World Without Us - Alan Weisman

              If Leif's in I'm out. LOL

              I'm kidding and in but I don't know that they're be enough follow-through. I tried this with movies and couldn't get even a few people to participate.

                From what you've listed, I'm most interested in "The Prophet" and "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle."

                I love reading so will go with just about anything if it's well-written.

                    I agree and count me in too...

                    "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life" is my pick

                        I'm glad we have so much interest! So, everyone should propose books, I'll make a list, and we'll vote on them by Monday. Then we all have a week to get the book and start reading. Agreed?

                        Make your suggestions!

                          A review posted on Amazon.com ... there are others there as well. Review authour is Nina Planck.

                          Attribution for review of "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life" by Barbara and Camille Kingsolver
                          http://www.amazon.com/Animal-Vegetab...7901927&sr=1-1

                          From Publishers Weekly
                          Starred Review. [Signature]Reviewed by Nina PlanckMichael Pollan is the crack investigator and graceful narrator of the ecology of local food and the toxic logic of industrial agriculture. Now he has a peer. Novelist Kingsolver recounts a year spent eating home-grown food and, if not that, local. Accomplished gardeners, the Kingsolver clan grow a large garden in southern Appalachia and spend summers "putting food by," as the classic kitchen title goes. They make pickles, chutney and mozzarella; they jar tomatoes, braid garlic and stuff turkey sausage. Nine-year-old Lily runs a heritage poultry business, selling eggs and meat. What they don't raise (lamb, beef, apples) comes from local farms. Come winter, they feast on root crops and canned goods, menus slouching toward asparagus. Along the way, the Kingsolver family, having given up industrial meat years before, abandons its vegetarian ways and discovers the pleasures of conscientious carnivory.This field—local food and sustainable agriculture—is crowded with books in increasingly predictable flavors: the earnest manual, diary of an epicure, the environmental battle cry, the accidental gardener. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is all of these, and much smarter. Kingsolver takes the genre to a new literary level; a well-paced narrative and the apparent ease of the beautiful prose makes the pages fly. Her tale is both classy and disarming, substantive and entertaining, earnest and funny.

                            This is a great idea. Try picking a selection that would have the most universal appeal.

                              Oh, I'm in. I vote The Prophet. It's on my list of future reads too.
