We have 2 years worth of book recommendations = 16 books from our first two years of meetings.

And we've started our 3rd year and 3rd set of 8 books recommendations.

Please see the original post in this thread for our votes on whether we'd suggest the books we've read to other book clubs.

As of December 2008, we've completed 3 years of regular meetings as the Vegan Book Club. We've read and rated 24 books. Please see our recommendations in the post above.

In January 2009, we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary and start our 4th year.
