The following list is the top 10 book club favorites from Reading Group Choice.  Each year they ask thousands of books clubs what books they read and which were their favorites.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure
of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Wow! Finally I got a website from where I can actually take helpful data regarding my study and knowledge.

In the gaming world, "lag" is seen as a having the screen jolting along with the action from the game being disrupted from your computer needing
to take longer to process the many actions that this game has.
This is surely an unwritten rule that few
people understand or accept. So with no a game placed on your
computer or laptop, don't worry.

Hello there! I could have sworn I've been to this site before but after browsing through many of the articles I realized it's new to me.
Anyhow, I'm certainly pleased I discovered it and I'll be book-marking it and checking
back frequently!

Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does operating a well-established website like yours take a
massive amount work? I am brand new to blogging but
I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll
try to get the hang of it!

You've made some really good points there. I looked on the
net for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with
your views on this web site.

I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? what if you were to create a killer headline?

I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog,
however what if you added a title to maybe get
folk's attention? I mean Reading Group Choices Top Ten Book Club Favorites of 2011 is a little plain.

You could look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create
post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a
video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything've written.
Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little
bit more interesting.
