Introducing the TatisTidbits Book Club

So I decided I should start a virtual book club with those who follow my blog. The plan is: I choose a book we can all read together, we give it a month and on the 15th of each month we discuss certain topics. At the very least its an excuse to get new book and i take the thought process out of it. Since this will be the first experiment, we will do the first choice in a democratic manner (and we can use the poll feature in wordpress for the first time!) Ill give you 3 options and then on the 15th of October, the winner will be the official  Book Club First entry.  Which book do you prefer? (for full blurbs of the 3 options see below!)

The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Lowland

Blurb: “From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Namesake comes an extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America, that expands the scope and range of one of our most dazzling storytellers: a tale of two brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn by revolution, and a love that lasts long past death. Masterly suspenseful, The Lowland is a work of great beauty and complex emotion; an engrossing family saga and a story steeped in history that spans generations and geographies with seamless authenticity.”

The signature of all Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

eg

Blurb: “A glorious, sweeping novel of desire, ambition, and the thirst for knowledge, Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction, inserting her inimitable voice into an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Exquisitely researched and told at a galloping pace, The Signature of All Things soars across the globe — from London to Peru to Philadelphia to Tahiti to Amsterdam, and beyond. Along the way, the story is peopled with unforgettable characters: missionaries, abolitionists, adventurers, astronomers, sea captains, geniuses, and the quite mad.”

The Circle By Dave Eggers

circle

Blurb:  “When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. What begins as the story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.”
