Book Pick?

I have to pick a book for book club in a few weeks.  Because I have put it off this long it needs to be a fairly easy read.  What is already in the running include: Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankle, The Last Battle by CS Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia), Anne of Green Gables (I've actually never read the book and it's been a while since I've seen the movie) or The Notebook.

PLEASE HELP ME! I'm a terrible decision maker.  What would you want to read if it were your book club?

Moment of Whininess:  My kitchen is a huge mess, bigger than I can ignore.  I'm tired, haven't slept well in a few days.  But I have to somehow get up from this desk and go clean it.  If I go to sleep will the house fairy do it do you think? ;)

We read the Last Battle for our book club and didn't really like it. We decided that we should have chosen one of the others in the series. We just read Goose Girl and that was good. Very easy read. By the way, we have the Language of God on schedule for December per your suggestion, so thanks!

I guess I am doing the book in June and just had to come up with one too. I have some great ideas that are children's chapter books but are historical fiction. They are great ideas, but I like your ideas too.

I vote for Anne of GG because I just read it for fun. :) It's an easy read, too.

the alchemist by paulo coelho, allegorical novels are some of my favorites.

I've tried that house fairy thing before and left the dishes for her to do when I go to bed, but to no avail, they are not done in the morning. I'm beginning to think she doesn't exist.

On the book club book, I read the book The Peacegiver by James Ferrell, a very easy read and not too long. It would be a very good book for a discussion I think. It's about Christs atonement but set into a fictional story about a man and his marital problems with his wife. I really learned a lot from it and it makes you look at your life and wonder weather you are really thinking about what the atonement and Christ have done for you.

Man's Search for Meaning. I haven't read it yet, but my mother and sisters and aunts and uncles and grandparents have, and they have ALL recommended it....

I would love to see our group reading more of the classics, but that is just me, maybe I will start a classics book group with some friends that want to read them too. I just haven't been that happy with a lot of the more modern books that I've read lately...
