Book of the Month Klub - Sign-up Thread
« on: July 14, 2011, 06:46:58 am »
We're always looking for discussion leaders for our BotMK, so don't be afraid...jump in...it will be fun!! As a discussion leader you'll be choosing a genre and then 3 books from that genre that we'll put up for the people to vote on. After a book has been chosen by the voters you'll have time to prepare your discussions for the group.

We're off to a good start with 4 wonderful volunteers, but if you'd like to be a leader, let me know what month you'd like to lead and what genre you'll be choosing books from.

August - fadedrainbows
September - Leslie
October - LauraB
November - imallbs
December - Geemont
January 2012 - Geoffrey
February 2012 -

    Alright, Ill volunteer for an upcoming month.

    Ive got a few prospects in mind.

    1.   Paranormality: Why we see what isn't there by Richard Wiseman.
    2.   IQ84 by Haruki Murakami. NYP (October)
    3.   The Satanic Verses by Salmon Rushdie.


    Im leaning towards No. 1.  That's of stuff on discuss and things to experiment with.


    BTW, Geoff, I think you should go back to the Zombie Spock.  That's been my favorite of the new avatars.



    I was going to split off and move and merge this thread but it was easier to do this ... :)

    OK, I've been rethinking my original idea.  The news about the banning of Slaughterhouse Five made me want to pick something from a banned\censored list of books.  I've got three books in mind.

    You can put me down for a month - any month :)  have no idea what I'll pick but it's probably Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alternate History, Dystopian, Apocalyptic or Post-Apocalyptic fiction.   :)
