The Book Discussion Club (foreign) by Nobody: 12:44pm On Jan 17, 2013
Hi there!
Are you a fan of new york times best seller novels? Do u love thriller,crime,law and other foreign novels?
And would you like to discuss these books with interesting people? Look no further cos you've just found the right place to express yourself.

Let's come together with our e-drinks,e-cookies and other e-goodies as we discuss these books chapter by chapter.

Hope to hear from you soon.Thanks.

Suggestion: People can nominate their best books here (and of course, the easily downloadable ones), when the titles reach ten. Then we can vote in the best one to read among them. I shall nominate mine later.

Thanks, D-deola. Bless you.

I suggest we pick the book we need to read as soon as possible. However, the choice of book, just like we discussed in the original thread, should be a popular one, and perhaps, easily downloadable.
Re: The Book Discussion Club (foreign) by LarrySun(m): 11:59pm On Jan 19, 2013
C'mon guys, don't tell me you don't read popular foreign books!

For Thrillers, we have Dan Brown, Robert Ludlum, Mario Puzo, Jeffrey Archer, James Patterson,James Clavell, Ken Follet, Sidney Sheldon, Irvin Wallace, John Grisham, Tom Clancy, etc.

For Horror and Supernatural, there are Ann Rice, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, etc.

For Detective Mystery, there are Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, P.D. James, G.K. Chesterton, Colin Dexter, P.G. Wodehouse, etc.

For Romance, there are numerous...Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts, Johanna Lindsey, Margaret Mitchell, Alexandra Ripley, Mary Higgins Clarke, Barbara Cartland, etc.

We have an abundance of books from which we can select.

Okay, for a start, I'd suggest Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. It's one book that I think really needs discussing...for the moment.

Expecting your replies.

I have never read any book by Dan Brown. I am looking forward to reading one soon.
Re: The Book Discussion Club (foreign) by megareal: 7:08pm On Jan 20, 2013
I doubt I can lay a hand on any Dan Brown's book at the moment. Read Da Vinci Code but twas borrowed. Let's read something by Ludlum, Grisham or Sheldon.

I've got all Dan Brown's books but only five books of Sheldon's. We need to put all our decisions in one, peeps.

i would like to go with this suggestion. The more time we spend ,aking suggestions the more time wasted. I suggest the captain make a move and choose a book. If u a lucky to have read it, fine. If not, it would be an opportunity for whoever to get updated. He had said Dan Brown, Davinci Code. Good book, only for mature readers. Lets get started.
