This book club is the newest joint venture between redpoisonapple and xnausikaax. We both thoroughly enjoy reading but can never find anything just quite right to read. And once we do, we discover no one else had read it and therefore none of us can discuss what was going on in the book and what we thought. So we decided to start this book club.
Please join and adhere to the rules and I know a fun time should be had by all XD
So this is how the community works. We all vote on what book we should read next from off our book list. Either Naus or myself will put the post up and everyone can comment to it with whatever book they want from that list. Everyone has 2 days to get their vote in before we count them up and declare the new book. Once we post the new book, there will be ONE week given to all members to find a copy of that book. Be it from a library, amazon, wherever. After that week, the reading begins. Once the mods are half way thru the book, we'll put up a post with screened comments to see how far along everyone is to determine how much time shall be given until we should all be done. Then we'll post telling you how much time is left to finish the book. Once that day comes, we'll post the poll to find out which book to read next. If you haven't finished the book by then, you still have a couple of days to finish it up before we ask everyone to give their overall review of the book. After that, we'll all start the new book.
Please read and follow the rules before posting. Thanks so much :D
01. Be sure to post with comments you have as you read the book. It can be anything from "character x is an ass, why'd he do that?" to "i think the black pot was a metaphor for blah blah blah" We need them posts to get a good discussion going. 02. THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE!!! ALWAYS!!! put your comments on what you're reading behind an lj-cut. Some people might not be up to where you are and we don't want to ruin it for them. Just put in the page and chapter your comment is about and then lj-cut the rest. ex: Chapter 7 page: 213 ( read more... ) 03. Everyone, be kind to one another. If you don't agree with someone's interpretation or point of view, don't go bashing them and being mean. Now...that ain't right and it's grounds for kicking you out.
We have just started the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. You can find editorial reviews for it HERE
