The first cookbook designed specifically for book clubs, The Book Club Cookbook will add real flavor to your book club meetings.

Featuring recipes and menu ideas for one hundred popular book club selections, The Book Club Cookbook will guide you in selecting and preparing culinary masterpieces that blend perfectly with the literary masterpieces your club is reading. With contributions from many of the authors of these favorite books themselves, as well as profiles of book clubs all across the country that are integrating food into their meetings in creative ways, The Book Club Cookbook includes such scrumptious pairings as: Tandoori Shrimp with Life of Pi by Yann Martel, Death by Chocolate with The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, Griet's Vegetable Soup with Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, Joan and Lalita's Peach Cobbler with Cane River by Lalita Tademy and many more!

What a cute idea for a cookbook!! I'm sort of in a book club, though I rarely go because I never read the book. LOL. I should really start.

I've not been in a book club before but I think it would be fun! I'd prefer it be something lighthearted or maybe a good mystery.
Thanks!

I do not belong to a Book Club..yet!

It would most certainly be about Cooking, as it's one of my favorite things to do :)

Shara said...

Book clubs.. One of my favorite subjects. =) I lead two book clubs, both Christian, for my church and our former local Christian bookstore. We've done several great books in these book clubs. Redeeming Love, The Shack, The Oak Leaves, In Search of Eden, A Proper Pursuit. Obviously, I would love this!!

Kimberly said...

I love books and I love to read but I don't belong to a book club. I honestly don't know of any local to me. I'd start one up but I wouldn't know who to invite (I don't know too many people).

My favorite type of book is true crime stories.

Thank you for a fun giveaway!

AudreyO said...

I"ve been in a bookclub once. It was relgious books. It moved too slowly for me,like a chapter a week. I understand they wanted everyone to be able to join, but a 50 chapter book and you're there a full year.

I am not in a book club and have never been. I think it would be interesting....do you have to choose a certain type of genre? I'd like to be in an eclectic one that read different types of books.

I used to be in a book club but it no longer meets. I enjoyed Suite Francaise - though I didn't get to go to club that month for the discussion. I would be interested in another one and this book would be so cool!

but love to read

Pamela J said...

Oh, wow, the names of the dishes included in the recipes sounds great. I do join the ACFW book club on line with chats we do from the 20th to the end of each month. A book is voted to discuss out of probably at least ten choices, a month or so in advance to give people a chance to get the book and get it read. I'm having a hard time picking which book is my favorite to have discussed, the two recent ones that come to mind are Julie Lessman's A Passion Most Pure and this month is Michelle Sutton's it's Not about Me. Both GREAT books. There has been more before that are great too.
I am subscribed to your blog and have already made a comment on the Canning up a storm blog.

blueviolet said...

I'm not in a book club but I do like the idea of being in one. I used to be in a mom/daughter one where we discussed the books the girls were reading. That was pretty fun actually. I think I'd like one now that read books that are currently "hot" because I tend to shop from the bestseller list most often.
