I'm going to simply create a poll with books soon. I'm not sure why our regulars aren't suggesting books but we're due for selecting a new non-fiction.

The following book would be excellent for group discussion. Richard Dawkins has a new book coming out on May 7th called Books do Furnish a Life: An electrifying celebration of science writing.

Books Do Furnish a Life is divided by theme, including celebrating nature, exploring humanity, and interrogating faith. For the first time, it brings together Richard Dawkins' forewords, afterwords and introductions to the work of some of the leading thinkers of our age - Carl Sagan, Lawrence Krauss, Jacob Bronowski, Lewis Wolpert - with a selection of his reviews to provide an electrifying celebration of science writing, both fiction and non-fiction. It is also a sparkling addition to Dawkins' own remarkable canon of work.

Take a look again at some of those names. We have done live chat sessions here on BookTalk.org with Richard Dawkins, Matt Ridley, Steven Pinker and Carl Sagan's widow, Ann Druyan. So this book contains the writing of some of our favorite authors.

Please read the book description and let me know what you think.

Books that take place in gritty dark settings are some of the best in my opinion. Dark fiction that offers escapism from the mundane. Interview with the Vampire is a great book to read that is drenched in Halloween like nostalgia. I assume that most of you are familiar with the movie, but not with the book. The book gives one quite an adventure in New Orleans.

There is a lesser known sequel to this book called The Vampire Lestat. I bet you the book will humor you and terrify you. The book is about the antagonist from Interview with the Vampire (Tom Cruise).

I read the first three: Interview, Lestat, Queen of the Damned about jeez...30 years ago. All engaged me as well written and a new spin on the genre.

I saw the thread, but have no serious urge to jump in. That may change in about three weeks when my semester is over, we'll see.

Also, my wife hijacked my copy of "Caste" for a more intense look at it that she is joining, so that is kind of hanging over me as some non-fiction I would like to get into. I am not even managing to keep up with the Fiction, so there's that.

The suggestions I have seen so far strike me as pretty interesting. The one that probably would pull me in best is "Think Again" though the Dawkins book looks almost as intriguing. Anyway, I will lurk around and hope for something that catches my fancy.

I'm locking this thread and creating a poll based on the non-fiction suggestions made here. I'll create a brand new thread for non-fiction suggestions for the next discussion.
