Last month I watched The Jane Austen Book Club - mild fun especially enjoyable for Austen fans. And recently, I came across two book blogs that mentioned online book clubs... but they seem to centre on books that are really not my thing (urban fantasy, YA).
Then the idea occured to me, several blogger buddies have either commented on my book reviews here or at the new blog, or wrote their own book reviews in response, or sometimes I think that S0-and-So might like x book and I would enjoy hearing their thoughts on it, and so on.
And I wondered, would there be enough of us (5 and up?) interested in an online book club? Do we have the time (ALWAYS time for reading!!). Do we share enough of a similarity in preferences? Can we afford to purchase one book a month (who needs socks anyway?).
There are countless ways to approach this. I was thinking one book a month. Seems plenty of time to work through one.
As for choice of books, we could choose one each, or have a theme..... ??
Discussion needn't be intense at all... more about reading something new (or re-reading an oldie), having fun, feeling part of a group of book lovers... you know.
What do you think?
EDIT: pondering all night on it... here's what I've come up with.
