Awesome! I didn't know it was THAT kind of club house, or I would have started a book club years ago! :) But tonight it will be a bottle of Chianti, if things go as I hope (and that is the extent of my political commentary on KB today :) )

Cabana boys? This is getting better and better...

Anyway, I figured I should copy and paste my proposed schedule here. The plan is that I (or someone else if they want to co-lead with me) will start a thread each Monday morning (except for Christmas week where I think we should put it off 'til the day after Christmas) to discuss the 2 "assigned" chapters. Feel free to post in previous weeks' threads if you're running behind - I'm sure people will be willing to debate earlier chapters, and it's not like a novel where there are spoilers.

NOTE: There are some political topics in the book (and some non-political ones like chess computers). Lets keep things civil and bipartisan.

Proposed Schedule:

I've never run a book club before, so don't hesitate to jump in with suggestions and guidance.

Aaargh....I was waiting for a gift card to come to buy the book with...and it did today, as scheduled.  Rushed over to get it and it's currently not available.

Ann, did you get it already?

So, I don't want to hi-jack this thread, but I see that this book is published by Penguin. NONE of their books are currently available in Kindle format. Does anyone know what's going on about that? I've been trying to peruse all of the KB threads to see whether anyone has commented about this but haven't found anything yet.

There's a discussion in the Writers' Café but I'm not sure there's one in the Book Corner....we should start one!

Thanks Betsy, looks like no one really knows what's going on.

Sometimes when you can't sleep, the only thing left to do is to resurrect a zombie thread.

I'd like directions to the Klubhouse, please.
