Stumbled across a good site for recommendations, especially if you're looking for the next thing for your book club when they're squabbling over whether to read Middlemarch or something shorter (i.e., anything). Check out Book Club Girl. Description on the blog states she works in the publishing industry but that she does not "flog" books only from her own publishing house. Looks to me like she's got a wide array of authors and publishers listed here, but judge for yourself.
For the record, I loved Middlemarch. Really. I wasn't slagging it.
