So, I'm thinking about creating one online. I mean, what the heck good is it to have a blog if you can't use it for something you enjoy, right?
I'm still working out the details in my head (scary thought, I know), but I think the way it would work is this. . . .
On the first Friday of every month, I'll choose a book for that month's selection (I'll always be open to suggestions, since the dictatorship thing isn't really my gig) Then anyone who's interested in participating for that month can leave a comment and join in.
On the final Friday of every month I'll create a post where those who chose to participate can chime in with their thoughts. Just like in a real bookclub -- only behind the flexibility of our computer lives.
But the best part is --unlike with real bookclubs -- with this one you can join in and drop out depending on whether you feel like reading the selected book for any particular month. If you don't like the genre, you can just skip that month. You like the next one, you can drop right back in.
(The only thing I'd ask is if you say you're going to read the book, please try to remember to read it and join in the discussion).
So what do you all think? Good idea? Bad idea? Anyone have any suggestions on the first genre they'd like the club to focus on?
