ALL Book Club: January 2013
This is the discussion thread for the January selection. We will be reading Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell.
Cool, I have a fresh, untouched copy on my bookshelf. I'm happy to read it again.
Is this book club thing still going on?

Sadly, most of them had brief bursts of enthusiasm and quickly fizzled out- I suspect a lot of it had to do with people reading at different speeds, no real firm agenda for discussion, and the lack of real-time interaction. It was a 'novel' idea (yeah, I can hear the groans and see the eyes rolling people) but lacked structue.
This place seems like a good idea:) It needs 3+ moderators (bookworms) that will be chosing the books, and discussing them regardles of popularity of this thread. And like this, people may chip in as well;) Well, hopefuly... :D
A book club isn't a bad idea.

I think to improve the real-time interaction, members would need to use something like skype. Maybe have a weekly chat about a particular chapter of whatever book everyone's reading. That would give the club a structure and a method of communication that would keep things moving.

Just my two cents.
