To inform all of my readers who are interested in the Book Discussion, I have decided that the discussion itself for each book will start the 1st of the next month so that it will give the people participating at least a month to finish the book. So for Finding the Boyfriend Within, our discussion will not start until September 1st. This post is to decide the next book for September of our Book Discussion. I am doing this early for anyone who wants to get ahead and also to make sure that everyone can have the book at the beginning of September to start reading. I have also started a Book Discussion category on my blog that will mark all of the posts on our book discussion from now on.
Here are my three suggestion for September’s Book Discussion Book:
- The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing up Gay in A Straight Man’s World by Alan Downs
- The Letter Q: Queer Writers’ Notes to their Younger Selves by Sarah Moon
- The God Box by Alex Sanchez
With Finding the Boyfriend Within being such a mentally deep book, I wanted something lighter for September. The Velvet Rage was recently re-released so there are two editions just so everyone knows. The Letter Q is about stories from people who are LGBT. The God Box is a fictional story about two teenage boys who fall in love as they wrestle with their faith and sexuality.
Here’s each of their covers as well:
If anyone has suggestions, feel free to make them known to everyone.
If anyone else is interested in the Book Discussion besides Rick or Michael, please let me know via the comments or email.
Have a wonderful week!
