Join Me in an Online Book Club at Barney's Book Blog!

I had such a fantastic time discussing Beach Trip by Cathy Holton as part of Books on the Brain's Summer Reading Series, I thought that it would be fun to start an online book club on Barney's Book Blog. Is there anybody interested in joining me?

To start us off, I would select 5 books and email the list to anyone who would like to join. All members will be asked to pick their first and second choice by a certain date. I will tally the votes and announce the book club pick as well as the date of discussion (don't worry I will give us at least 4 weeks to read the book -- I know how busy we all are). On the date of discussion, I will post questions which each member can answer in the comments section as well as reply to other members. After a few days, I will ask for suggestions for the next month's book and we will start again.

So what do you think? If you would like to join, please leave me your name and email in the comments section below. I would also love it if you could pass this post along to other bloggers because the more people who join the better the discussion! If you have any questions, please email me at jedziedz@hotmail.com.

Great idea! I'm not sure I'll have time with all the reading commitments I already have but if I can work it in, I will!

This is a great idea and brave endeavor. I shall let others know about it but for the time being I am slammed with so many commitments and 2 other book clubs so don't feel I would do justice by saying yes. I will watch your blog, however, and if things let up, perhaps I can join at a later date. Good luck and happy reading!

I've been working on something similar for the last couple months. I've just posted the June discussion on my site - and i can always send you some of the other discussion posts i've had up to see how we worked it - maybe we could figure out a way to combine everyone to make it bigger? You can email me at ravndahl at hotmail dot com.
