Spring is in the air and it is time to begin selecting the first book for the Morris book club discussion! Based on your feedback, the following categories were chosen by popular vote and books will be selected as follows (subject to change per the group):

April - Bestseller
July - Memoir
September - Work of Morris Alumni
January - Award Winners

Please post TWO of your bestseller book choices by Thursday, March 11 here by clicking on "comment" and the group will vote by most popular selections to begin reading and discussing! After the book is chosen, please post at anytime to fellow readers for discussion. If available, discussion questions will also be posted here for additional commentary. Happy Reading!


  1. The Glass Room

    The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo

  2. This is going to be fun! I haven't read this one but it looks like fun: THE LOST SYMBOL, by Dan Brown

    Or i read Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and really enjoyed it!

  3. How about Greg Mortenson's new book (the "sequel)to Three Cups of Tea?

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. Thanks for the comments and great book suggestions! I have chosen two books at random (out of a hat!) to vote on:

    - The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
    - Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson

    If you would make a comment for your final selection and then we can begin reading and discussing. I will provide questions if they are available. We will also promote the book club in our monthly newsletter and alumni magazine, Profile. Happy Reading!

  6. I would love the excuse to finally read my copy of Three Cups of Tea, so that would be my vote. Thanks!

  7. I vote for Three Cups of Tea as well. It looks intriguing, and the "one child at a time" hooked me. Thanks!

  8. The Spring bestseller reading has been chosen by popular vote: Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson.

    Congratulations on the inaugural Morris alumni book club title selection! Enjoy reading and discussion questions will be posted here in three weeks. Based on several reviews, Three Cups of Tea is a wonderful book club selection as it inspires great discussion!
