I’ve been trying to add to my list of books to read. More specifically, I’ve been trying to add books outside my normal reading genres (Fantasy/Sci-Fi and historical non-fiction). So I’ve put a number of books that friends have recommended on my list of books to read (thanks for the tip on the tool, Anna!). Some of these have come from recommendations from friends (specifically Lou Ann and Kevin), bits I’ve heard on NPR, and of course some of the classics I “read” (i.e., skimmed) in high school.
Kate just finished reading My Sister’s Keeper, which had been recommended by Lou Ann. I haven’t read it yet, but it seems to me from the subject matter (read Lou Ann’s post about the book for more info) that it is ripe for discussion. Likewise, I have found myself interested in what people think of Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal.
So I wanted to gauge interest in an online book-discussion group. It would initially take place here on my blog (probably just in the form of comments). It could be a monthly thing, or an every-two-months thing, or a chapter-a-week thing, or whatever we want it to be. Who would be interested? What kind of format would you like to see it take? If you’re interested, respond here and help me come up with ideas!
