*****2ND UPDATE*****

How about be ready to discuss Wednesday August 27th. This is a short book so that should be ample time, I think. Yay! I'm excited :)


For the record, I'm adding The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Deconstructing Amelia to my reading list. Both look great! I've already read Gone Girl, A Discovery of Witches, and half of Book Thief if anyone wants to discuss any of those with me :).



***UPDATE***

I'm calling it: The Fault in Our Stars it is (my choice didn't win, but I'll suck it up ;) ).

Let's talk time frame. Are we thinking a month? It's a quick read, honestly. Only took me 2-3 days when I read it, so I was thinking maybe a shorter time frame this time.

Also, I thought we might want to set a date to commit ton the movie, too, so we could compare.

Thoughts?

***********************************

Which book would you like to start with? Comment if you want to persuade others :).

Also... Not to offend anyone, but I can only do 10 choices. We can throw the others in next month.

  • I haven't checked - is TFIOS on the amazon prime list yet? It'd be even more awesome to read it for free!
  • I'm down! And I'm okay with a shorter time frame too.
  • ^ agree with @ceeyounexttuesday‌. I don't like to pay for movies at the theater. Unless I'm nerding out

  • I also am not sure how a book club works. I'm excited to read the book though!

    On a specified date, I'll post a discussion thread with some questions to get the conversation going. Others may also have observations and things they want to bring up, as well. We can let the discussion evolve organically.

    Another option is starting a Goodreads group or a social group. I would feel bad bombarding the board with multiple threads (thoughts in this?), but that way, we can separate different topics instead of having one large discussion. The problem there, is the exclusivity often leads to a smaller group and/or members dwindling since it's not in the forefront.

    What we can do with longer books, too, is have discussions mid way through or at specified points, but with this book that's not necessary... reads too quickly.

    If anyone else has different ideas on how we can do this, let me know! I want it to be what's best for our group.

  • No, I agree one post wouldn't be an issue. Only if we wanted to separate topics into various threads. Like the idea of a sticky.

  • So, I was wondering if I could participate in the book club? I'm not too active in the board because people usually post my thoughts before I get there, but I'd love to partake in this!

  • This will be the perfect reason for me to use the kindle fire I got for my birthday! I'm excited to start reading again.
