Top 10 Strange Book Club Choices

Posted by Dana

Here's another list we got from our 10th Anniversary Contest.  These were some of the most unexpected selections you submitted as your "favorite discussion books".  And these were surprising to say the least.

Perhaps each on it's own not sooo strange - but all together - you'll admit - definitely strange!

    • The Bible
    • The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships and Other Adventures by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy
    • Festivus: The Holiday for the Rest of Us by Allen Salkin and Jerry Stiller
    • How My Mother Raised 10 Kids on 25 Words or Less by Terry Ryan
    • How Not to Look Old: Fast and Effortless Ways to Look 10 Years Younger, 10 Pounds Lighter, 10 Times Better by Charla Krupp
    • The Joy of Sex by Alex Comfort
    • Nightlight: A Parody (National Lampoon satire of Twilight) by The Harvard Lampoon
    • Ripe: The Search for the Perfect Tomato by Arthur Allen
    • Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern
    • The Core Strength Workout by Karon Karter

Has your group read any you could add to this list? Maybe make it stranger? Come on... I dare you!
