Reminder: Book Recommendations

Just a reminder: We're at the end of our 2007 Book Club picks and we're still in the process of selecting what we'd like to read for next year. That means this is the perfect time for you to tell us what you want to read. Whether it's something you've read and loved and want to share with others, or something you've heard about and are interested in reading, send us your book club requests and recommendations at bookclub[at]gapersblock[dot]com. The only requirement is that the books be somehow related to Chicago (and if you're not sure how your book relates, send us the title anyway and we'll do a little research to see if we can make it work). We're definitely looking forward to another year of great reads.

The recently-released uncensored version of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle.

Thanks for the recommendation, Clare. We read The Jungle back in 2005 - in fact, it was our second book ever! It'll probably be a while before we consider revisiting it.

Then We Came to the End by Josh Ferris. I don't live in Chicago anymore so I can't join you, but I just finished reading this book about an advertising agency located on Michigan Ave chronicling the daily life of the employees while they go through a downturn. Pretty entertaining!
