This month’s newsletter will be short and sweet but very important!
October Book Groups:
We have three groups for you next month
The Stand – Stephen King (Hosted by Coffeesaint)
Thief of Lives (Noble Dead #2) – Barb & JC Hendee (Hosted by Cat)
The authors will be joining us again
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert Pirsig (Hosted by Jvstice)
I’m really looking forward to reading some great books next month! Hope you can join us.
What books will we be reading next year with the Book Group? Well that really depends on you!
There are only 100 days left of this year, so we need to get planning so that everyone can be prepared for the New Year kick-off. Yes I know, 100 days sounds like a lot and do we really need to think about this now? Well, yes we do, because we have halloween, and thanksgiving and christmas and new year and vacations all between now and then. Plus we need to get the suggestions in so we can vote, so we can plan the schedule and find people to host the discussions. Authors have to be contacted, people need time to get a hold of books… well you get the idea I’m sure.
So with that in mind, the 2008 suggestion threads went up a few days ago. You can find them all by clicking here. You will have to be a member to see this part of the board.
We are looking for suggestions in the following categories:
- Romance, Paranormal Romance, Chicklit
- Sci-Fi, Fantasy, & Horror
- Classic & Historical Fiction
- Contemporary & Modern Fiction
- Non-Fiction & Biography
- Crime, Mystery & Thriller
Within those categories you can include children’s books, graphic novels, prize-winnng books, books-to-movie and so on.
When suggesting a book, please include author’s name and any information that might be helpful to other people, when it comes to voting for the books you want to read. If the book is part of a series, please give details of the series.
Remember, you should be suggesting books that YOU want to read with the Book Group next year. They will then be put to a vote and the books with the most votes will be shortlisted. There are some series that we will be continuing to read next year automatically so you don’t have to waste your votes on them.
Note: We got some cool new features coming up in the new year, which will affect the Book Group in particular. Things will be much easier, discussions will be easier to find, there will be no signup threads, and there will be a funky new way of accessing the book group!
