Good Reads: Current read throughs
« on: March 22, 2015, 06:04:31 pm »
Welcome to Mojofarm's new book club :)

This will be the place where we list all our current (and previous) book titles that we'll be reading together. Each book will have its own dedicated thread for discussion and we'll hyperlink all of them in this spot. Titles will be listed in alphabetical order according to the authors name (can be changed to book name or even genre if that's easier). Looking forward to seeing lots of suggestions for read throughs and, hopefully, lots of discussion.

Enjoy,
The Mod Squad

I've been sitting back waiting for someone to put forward a book to read. I think we are all waiting! ::)

I've never done a read through as part of a book club before. I'm not sure what the format would be. Is it a chapter a week? Or does it depend on the book?

I've never done one either, but, I've listened to many podcasts where people discuss chapters (A Song of Ice and Fire series). It's so much fun when you're interested in the material. Hopefully soemoen puts forth a suggestion :). I'd think a 1-3 chapters, per week, would be ideal. Having said that, if chapters are smaller, then the number would increase. Totally flexible.

I just made a reply in the other Forum about choosing a book to start with and it looks like there is an agreement about Outlander (I would like to know if it is all of them or just starting with Cross Stitch Numer 1)  or The Martien by Andy Weir.

eek.. this means I will have to figure out my Kindle paper thingymabobby to get the books on there :-)

Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Wilyone asked for a copy as well but I'm not sure. I'll pm them and confirm.

I can confirm my attempt at joining this book club.  I'll keep an eye out for when the discussion milestones are. The book is loaded.  :)
