PostSubject: The Book Club   Thu Mar 05, 2009 3:08 am

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a book club? Basically over the space of (a week, fortnight, month - let mw know which suits) we pick a book, read it and then discuss it - in its own thread here.

At the moment i'd like to get a few numbers for those who would be interested. thanks emily

I'm saying yes, though it will always depend on the book for me! I think a longer time frame (2 weeks, a month) would be best, since that will give people time to pick up the book somewhere if they hadn't prior to the discussion time!

I agree with psyche, it definitely depends on the book. I still haven't finished Kissing the Rain and then I have to read Dandelion Wine. But I think I'd really like to do this - it just depends on the book.

I say yes for the most part, depending on the book.

Would depend on the book and the time frame, but good idea.

I'm up for it! I think a good time frame would be two weeks or a month, so everyone can get a chance to buy it and read. Great idea!

Ok great! Well its agreed then that we should start one. I think i'll leave a month between each discussion to allow people to purchase and read the book before i open a thread.

I'd like to ask for suggestion for our first book? I was thinking that we might start with some homegrown talent 'Rosy Thorton's' book - More than love letters?

Ah, that gives me an idea. How about if it's something short like Coraline maybe just two weeks or maybe three, but a good five or six weeks for something monstrous like War and Peace. Just a thought to toss out there. Or maybe I'm sounding stupid because this went without saying >.>

Sounds good! I may not be able to until I finish my other books, but I can try.

Yes, I'd be interested. Like the others, it depends on the book. Also, for me it depends on whether I'll be able to get a copy from the library, or have it already - I'm not going to be going out buying them at the moment - saving for the gap year.

I would love to join in. I'm not sure about the current book, just because I have about 5 in front of it, but if I get done quickly (which I may) I will join in. Thanks for the chance, I think it will be great to have the discussion.

I'm the same as the others. It depends on the book. This is a great idea! So, is it, More Than Love Letters? Or, is the jury still out?

As much as I'd love to, the 2 libraries in my area don't carry the book and I don't have the money to spend on it at the moment. Next time!

Might I suggest The Kitchen Gods Wife or the Curious Case of Benjamin Button? I borrowed the first one and the second one should be in at the library soon, it's on hold for me and the current reader hasn't finished it just yet.

I've started a voting thread - the poll will change every month with people's requets and we can all vote on what book we want to read.

Ooo. Book Club! (Sorry, I've been sorta M.I.A. for a while. On Break now, so got slammed with exams right before.) I really like this idea, but I have a HUGE stack of books to read. I'd feel pretty guilty taking up more until I get through some of them. (Most of them are romance novels, too.) Maybe once Break is over, and I've read... Well, I want to be caught up to the book-a-week thing, and if I can do that, I'll jump into the bookclub and read whatever we're on when I catch up.
