What makes a good book club book? Read it Forward readers told us it was a book that had some real meat to it, one that dealt with issues that were ripe for discussion, one that could be interpreted in multiple ways. The best part of reading in a group is getting to dissect the book with other smart people after you’re done reading it. So much better than reading a book alone, then wishing someone else you knew had read it so you could talk about it! Read it Forward readers told us these were their favorite books they’d read in book club, so next time you need a guaranteed good read for your book club—one that will fuel lots of discussion—pick one of these. And don’t forget to choose a bottle of wine that will pair well with the read!
