List of Past Book Club Books

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

So to end all of the confusion of what we have read and what we haven't read - I've organized this list. These are all the books that we have discussed in the past. And they are links to the original discussions - so I encourage you to check out the books and add to the discussions.

If anybody finds any mistakes in this list or has any suggestions - feel free to post them here. Please click on all the links and check them out for me. I will be adding the books to this list after I move them to the Official Cult Book Club Forum (after the discussion is over).
