Book Clubs and such

There have been some interesting book club picks this month so I thought I would pass them along to you.
At Burbank Public Library, they are continuing the Big Read program where everyone in the city reads the same book. This month's choice is Jack London's "Call of the Wild." There will be programs throughout the month and it runs from September 27 to November 2. I love the Big Read program because it does get to me to read books I never would have thought to pick up like "Marley & Me" by John Grogan.
BAM Challenge #9 is also a good one. This month's theme is "change." I like that their challenge leaves you open to choose and interpret the theme how you see fit. I actually read "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom because the theme for that month was mothers. This book made me cry and it was another one of those books that I never would have thought to pick up.
This year I am sure not sure what our first Book Bistro book will be. I need to discuss it with my counterpart. However, if you out there have any suggestions (YA Books) let me know. I have a book club book so I will page through that.
