What about a monthly book club?

While I could never part with a book. I keep every book I own, till I die. I would love to have a sort of online book club. Since many people on the board seem to like to read. We could choose a book. Everyone buy it and then we could have a long long thread discussing the book.

Anyone interested?
I think we tried this once before, but we seemed to pick a book that none of us ended up really liking.

I'm ALWAYS up for a book club. Just let me know which book, and I'm there!

You might also want to post this on the non-hair board (which you may have already done by now) because it gets so much more traffic.
I'd love to be a part of this, but who would be responsible for choosing books? It might be hard to get a book everyone can agree on. Well I'm not picky, I'll read almost anything!

Good idea...I hope we can get this started! [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
any book suggestions?

I am reading Zen books currently. Anyone interested in those?

Also I think we have to set a limit on page length.
Well, I wanted to read "Growing up X" but I just read really bad reviews on it....I've been wanting to read "John Henry Days" by Colson Whitehead, for a few months now. I'm flexible to any suggestions, though. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
The boook we read before was called "The Dress Lodger" but the problem was some of read the whole book in 2-3 days [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
When I read a book,I can't stop!
How would we discuss?
Chapter by chapter?
I think it would depend on the book.

I like the chapter by chapter since we can come here and post at anytime.

Once I start reading a good book I have to finish. So it usually never takes me longer than a day to read a book.
I would love to do it! I think that even if its a book that you don't end up liking- there is still something to discuss. I did it in English class all the time! [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]
So has a book been decided upon yet? I'm very intrested in this book group. Never done something like this before.
bumping

and the book is...?
We need to come up with a list of 3 and vote.

I'll try and think of some.

any suggestions are welcome...

Also it's doesn't have to be a masterpiece. Something easy to read is great too.
How about this for a start?
The NY Times Bestseller list? http://books.rpmdp.com/neyoti/neyohcfi.htm
The first one sounds good.
Or should we go to paperbacks for easier availability?
I think "Lovely Bones" looks good. Great suggestion, Mar.
I am thinking paper backs to keep it cheap and so everyone can get them.

any other suggestions?

How about this book ? I picked it up from Wal-Mart for $10.

Oh now this one looks good for me. I already have it, just haven't read it yet.
The Lovely Bones is an excellent book. i just finished it not realizing it was one of the club's possibilities. a real page turner. i was able to find a used hardback on amazon for $10. highly highly recommended!!!!!!!!!
