Something I sorta noticed, but I'm not sure of: What kind of correlation between books and recommendations by each character is there? Or is there any?
Ok, that's an awkward question. Perhaps some examples...
If (as in the case of this most recent book) Tamara recommends a book, I can guess that it's going to be a children's book, or in this case, a book having to do with African(-American) culture.
Dewey's recommendations are going to be Graphic Novels, YA books and Science Fiction. Or Zombies. Or maybe all of them at the same time.
Was it Colleen and Mel who were arguing Freakonomics vs some other book I don't recall offhand? They don't recommend enough books.
(Frankly, I would appreciate some sort of level guide for the books listed. I picked up Dragon and Thief a while back out of the club, but might not have had I realized it was a YA book. Nothing against YA, but I finished it in about 2 hours, and it would have helped to know that ahead of time.)
I ramble because I care...
