Most years since 2012. Hoping now for 2022.
Things have been quiet here at the Book Club! I've consulted with a couple of active participants to consider book selection, and we've made some executive decisions. All the books suggested below are available as both e-books and as paper versions.

We have had two books of fiction and propose to have two more. I haven't read either, but plan to do so.
3.3 The Roland Medals, by Maureen Cashman - Discussion thread to start in mid-October
3.4 Two Steps Forward, by Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist - Discussion thread to start in mid-November

Then for Round 4, we're going big with some classic books on Iberia and on pilgrimage. You might want to put these on your Christmas lists.
4.1 Pilgrimage by Jonathan Sumption - Discussion to start in early January 2022​
4.2 Journey to Portugal, by Jose Saramago - available on Kindle - Discussion to start in early February 2022​
4.3 Iberia by James Michener (excluding the chapter on bulls) - Discussion to start early March 2022​

Of course, in the spirit of the forum, anyone can always post a thread about a camino book. I am just trying to coordinate some reading for fun, without structuring things too much or too little.

Feel free to comment on the process or the schedule.

Now I'm off to order some books (if I can't find them in my local library).
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).
2022 Camino Guides
The 2022 Camino guides will be coming out little by little, most of them by the end of 2021. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.

I am currently reading The Roland Medals and was going to start a new commentary thread once I finished. I see that a new member has written a review today in a new thread, so I'll retitle that thread with "Book Club" and we can add to it.
