Book Club?


Super Mod
I think that 'genres' should be defined by the book club. Start on one book, then look for similar books, and that way you have all books about the same general ideas, and people can branch out from there. Genres are very general, and the only way to specify is to do it by example.

For example, Lord of the Rings : Medieval, good vs evil. Way too generic. However, someone who's read a few books might be able to find their book, and then similar books.

I personally don't quite like Genres. I'd rather go based on theme.
I like the idea, but I don't at the same time. The same theme might get boring after a while. I think branching out to different aspects would make more book clubs once people got interested, and would also group people together best who have similar interests.

Or you could make it based on the leader's choice.. So you would post in the thread of someone who has similar literary tastes.

Well the reader, I think should have some knowleadge about the book and as for now. To make things less complex, I still think 1 Book Club for the Entire forum (for now) would help us keep our sanity (if any of it is left...)
That seems even more chaotic. Imagine the debate of either reading fiction or fantasy. Ew, I don't like that idea at all.

Setting sail for fail in the sea of lame.
Well, like I said, I'd like to put my name in the ring for book club pioneer leader. What I was thinking is picking out three books (or starting a public poll) and then having the lot of us vote on which book seems most appropriate.

The sooner we start this, the sooner we can set a date and get reading! I'm looking very forward to it!

Of course, I'd like to be 'voted in', in a sense; don't want to be pushy about the issue, because there are certainly a number of others who would likely appreciate the opportunity.

I think we have a fair 8-10 that will be interested, and once the operation gets kicked off the ground, I'm sure more will join up. Honestly, I'd be perfectly happy with a pair of cohorts to read and discuss a book with. The fact that this thread got a second page the day after its inception says there ARE enough people interested to make this worthwhile.

What he said. Let's get this going as quickly as possible (if it's going to happen).


Because none of us are as cruel as all of us.
Well, it'll be a few days before I get my library membership, as I'm a bit busy lately :p But i'll join =D
