Thesite.org book club?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Anyone interested, I thought no one discusses books much anymore, everyone loves to read and we could have a bi-monthly/tri-monthly book club read? eg we all collectively decide on a book, read it and discuss it? I love reading but never get to discuss some of the books I read as no one else does,

I'd rather not do it online with people I do not know and thought it could be interesting to do here

I am thinking over a longer period of time as some people do take longer to get through books but then you could discuss like chapters 1-5 in the first few weeks and do it that way..

Just an idea..


Interested people?

    Woot, I am not the only one although I was thinking we could do like polls and nominate books so the majority decide what to read, otherwise it might be a bit unfair.

    ooooh me me!!! I LOVE reading books, but when it comes to discussing them afterwards, i always forget the author/title etc LOL so this'll be perfect!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Maybe.

    If you do the books I'm reading for uni I may consider it, but since I have to read the Ulysses I doubt you'd be interested ;).

    Maybe when I'm done with uni, I'll join in.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Ok.

    I also have to read Wuthering Heights and Tess of the D'Urbervilles, and some Virginia Woolf (To The Lighthouse) as well as wonderful other stuff.

    Really, I think I'll stay out of it til after uni. I don't want to torture anybody ;).

    its one of those things that sounds a great idea, and has been attempted to get off the ground several times, but never really does

    I have to read that one next, i hope its better than hard times - not exactly what i call a page turner. But its alright.


    ohh and if we do get this off the ground Alice in wonderland and through the looking glass would be helpful ones (for me :p) to read. :D;)

    oh god, currently in the middle of an essay on hard times. trying to warble on about how mr bounderby is like a machiiiiiine and failing. almost done though
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I LOVED HARD TIMES HUSH YOUR FACES ;o.

    It's better than that bloody Middlemarch. Bloody Middlemarch.

    P.S. Rach - Mr Bounderby is not like a machine, he is like a COMPLETE DICKWAD.

    when you back franki? shervello is instigating a big giant christmas meal for thurs evening! yeah mr bounderby sucks but i have more to say on characters i hate.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Id actually quite like to do something like this, though I feel that my method of reading books would probly bugger me up. I say I read at least a book or two a month, but it takes me about 1.5 months to read a book, I always seem to have different ones on the go at once :(

    I thought she said Wednesday? Either way yes, I will be there. I have open shifts on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday so I'm back on Monday.

    MAKE SURE SHE RECORDS X FACTOR FOR ME.

    Thanks for the SCC, yes it "may" not work but I am going to try it anyway
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I can see co-ordinating it would be a PITA, but otherwise I'd be up for it. As long as it wasn't chick-lit every month.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I like pretty much any book, not sooo keen on historical fiction but if it;s got a good plot i'll give it a go :D

    My fav books are forensic crime and fantasy humour (just read Christopher Moore- amazingly funny!)
