Did we ever have a bookclub?

Would anyone be interested in starting/restarting one?


Okay so far we have:
Jam
Alias Avi
BBPants
CallmeDeva
NewDiva
Smaison
Jonesable
Princess Grace
JayJayNonie
Rumbera
Nemesis1
BG
Random Thoughts
Ms Wonderland

If I've missed you, its because I couldn't tell from your post if you were in or not.

My idea is to have a new book each month - We will take turns in the order posted above to choose the book. I don't mind the idea of a poll, so the person choosing for the month can present 3 choices and the winner takes it.

Proposed rules:
-Book chooser needs to nominate book by the first of the month
-First 3 weeks of the month - read the book
-Fourth week of the month - discuss the book
-Book chooser for that month acts as moderator for the discussions (if necessary). Sometimes posing set questions is a good way to get discussions going
-Books can be no longer than 400 pages - I think long books can turn people off.
-Be prepared to read from any genre
-Accept that that there may be a month where you've already read the book!


Have never done this before so am open to any and all suggestions


ETA

Trying to choose books is hard manErmm

Please go here to vote:

Theme was black female authors, with the limitations of less than 400 pages and nothing too heavy

no one can ever agree on what to read. It's a good idea but a lot of folks don't want to try something new when it comes to books. i'll read anything...especially if I have someone to discuss it with.


you also got folks that will hold the convo back. because they have to wait to purchase the book or they didn't read and mad because folks are talking about it...

I would say this. Come up with a book list, some basic rules and those that don't have their "school materials" can sit out this book if they wish or participate when they catch up.
