Who says BHM doesn't read! Lets do this ladies and gents!

Rules

-Book chooser needs to nominate book by the 1st of the month
-First 3 weeks of the month - read the book
-Fourth week of the month - discuss the book
-Fourth week - next host selects book choices for following mth, sets poll for the winning selection
-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!
-If you don't want to host we will just move down the list to the next person.

It's a book of short stories.

Are we reading all of the short stories in the book before we discuss?

I read the first short story and went on to the second and it took me to realize they were separate stories in the book

Yup, since people read at different speeds we don't want any spoilers. We will have the last week to discuss which should be plenty of time...


Also, not everyone has to host, I know some people are busier than others, but you cant ALL back out tho

I don't think I would mind hosting but I've never hosted before. What's involved? Also keep in mind that I work 3rd shift so y'all just might have to be up with me at 3am.

BHM Bookclubbers

We should have all finished the book by now so lets talk.
some questions for discussion to get things going

Did you enjoy the collection of stories?

Did you find these stories realistic?

Any characters that you could particularly relate to?

Which story did you want to know more about  to see how things progressed?

How did you view some of the choices the characters made? Inevitable? Misguided?

Any story or character that you just didn't like?
