Philanthropist's Danse

Really great book discussion about greed/gifts and takers/givers. Lots of interesting characters to discuss and intriguing enough to keep you turning pages till the end.

Not loved by everyone in our group, but sparked a really good discussion about history, women and strength. The fact it was based on an actual event made it even more meaningful. It was very well researched and and we all felt we learned so much about that time period in history.

Poisonwood Bible

There were so many roads to travel in this book for discussion, we just couldn\\\'t get to them all. The writing is so wonderful, I had to stop highlighting the phrases I loved and the concepts I wanted to discuss because there were simply too many. A book about family relationships, how choices made today affect all our tomorrows as well as the tomorrows of those around us, with a history lesson about the African Congo as a backdrop. It\\\'s not the easiest read, but it is worth it.
