      I don't think there's been one recently, certainly not as a 'group' :ninja:





      Anyway, I'm wondering how many TSRians are interested in this kinda thing. I know we have a lot of, avid, readers so perhaps this would be something to consider.

      It would take the same format as any general 'book club', as in we would vote for a book to be chosen and be given a time limit to read that book. As opposed to discussions being forced, think of it as more of communal reading. All things "communal" are fun, yeah! (Apart from communal showering...) Discussions would hopefully ensue and we can all choose another book for next month, or something along those lines.


      Primarily, this would be for people who would like to read new things, don't know what to read, like chattiness or, like me, need some real motivation to read otherwise you won't do it.

      List of people interested so far:

      Nominations -- No more nominations are needed for Jan 2011

      1984
      The Book Thief
      A Case of Exploding Mangoes
      The Handmaid's Tale
      Heart of Darkness
      To The Lighthouse
      Villette

      What if you can't get the book from your local library? (However, looking at the nominations so far, it does seem a pretty good selection and I would not mind a re-reading of 1984).

      I'd like to join. I'd nominate Nineteen Eighty-Four, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, or Heart of Darkness, since I've always wanted to read the book Apocalypse Now was based on. Do the books have to be fiction?

      I'm voting AGAINST 1984 though. I personally studied it to death at school, and its a book that most people know well, already..?

      Or is it too late to join? I didn't notice this thread for a while so the boat may have passed me. I don't join many groups as you can see.

        Count me in for all of these shenanigans.I like the idea of this. I might start reading things that aren't so depressing that I contemplate suicide immediately after finishing it. Having taken a quick look at the other thread, I assume Heart of Darkness is the book for January?
