Okay, we’re going to do a book club. There are enough of us interested and anybody can join at any time. I’ve never ever done this before. I’m thinking that it would be great if we can find a place to do an online chat together. I think Google + allows for something like that. Though I was thinking less video and more typing it out.
Anyhow, I’ve never done a book group before. I’m thinking we make a decision on what to read, perhaps take nominations for a week and then vote? Or Maybe do a random drawing? That way everybody’s books get chosen eventually. And of course, anyone can really lobby for a book and we can throw out our normal procedures.
We can set a date each month for next month, or we can just schedule them all now.
Do you have other ideas about how to run this? Where to have our discussion?
I’d like to do our first discussion at the beginning of February, so we’d have to get moving quickly.
ETA: Okay, so Douglas has raised an important issue. What genres will we be reading? Fantasy? UF? PNR? traditional fantasy? SF? Others? I think personally I’d like an element of the sf/f in whatever we read, but I’m pretty open to mystery, sf, horrorish sorts of things, romance, and so on. What do you think?
