    Posted: July/17/2010 at 3:10pm
After much Discussion with Ros we have decided to start up our 'Bodymod Book club'

We pick a book. Set a time for reading it. Read it. Discuss it. Start over.

It helps if there is a E-book somewhere... But hey, where there is a library theres a way!

We like books.

So... Suggestions for our book / short story / anything read list.

i'd suggest any chris walter books. he is a canadian independent writer and his books are amazing. they cost around 15-25$ and he signs every single one. but no e-books though, and i doubt you'd be able to find them at a library unless you live in vancouver.. dang

this could be cool for starting out, you can download any zine and it would be easy for everyone to get through one in a week, they have zines on everything, even stories.

great idea, always nice finding a new book to read, I have a bad habit of reading the same ones over and over again but I have a crap memory so I forget bits so it's like hearing new things about characters I know anyway.

dang nab it, fab idea but with school and the other book club activity I have going I am not sure I have the time.

quick reads I've devoured this summer for your consideration:

Go-Go Girls of The Apocalypse - post apocalyptic fun, what's not to love? this baby also birthed my second biggest fictional crush.

The Ask - fun with hard times YAY!

The Lonely Polygamist - cause sometimes four wives and twenty eight kids leaves a heart yearning for more

Anthropology of an American Girl - the book jacket claims " if publishers could figure out a way to turn crack into a book, it'd read a lot like this." and they ain't lying.

Freakonomics - who doesn't need some more useless knowledge rattling around the old brain?

if ya'll have books you are willing to pass on and want new books try Paper Back Swap, it's books for the cost of shipping!

I don't really have enough time to do this I will suggest a couple of easy readers that could be done with in a week or two:

A Million Little Pieces - James Frey; One of the reviews reads: 'Frey can write. Brilliantly. And if you don't think so, fuck you.' Ha.

Procession of the Dead - D.B Shan. A very, very odd book indeed that I cannot describe without giving the plot away. Just read it.

The Memory Keepers Daughter - Kim Edwards. One for the girlies, and guys depending on your empathetic side. Based in the 1960's, about a couple who have twins, one of which has Downs Syndrome.

The Alexander Trilogy - Valerio Massimo Manfreddi. Describes in great detail a fictional account of Alexander the Great's life :]
Glimmi says: But yeah theres that old saying you can't judge a book by it's cover, cause it could have like 60 piercings in it's cock......Well that's not how the saying actually goes but you get my point.

I think "The Phantom Of The Opera" is a good book. It is not long, it is available in many languages and it is a really good story.
Also it is out of copyright so it is very cheap to buy in some editions and even can be downloaded free on some websites.
