BOOK GROUP NEWS
This is a very brief update on what is happening with the book group for 2007, mainly so we can announce the books for January before the Christmas holidays start.
Firstly thanks to all of you who suggested books, voted in the suggestion polls and volunteered to host. We will be looking at the results in detail and devising a schedule accordingly over the next few weeks, but since January is only a few short weeks away, choosing and announcing the books for January was a priority.
The books for January have been chosen from the suggestion polls and hosted by the people who had already volunteered to host them in the hosting thread.
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
(hosted by Snapesgirl)
Often described as wonderful and one of the best books ever written, FGT tells the story of Evelyn, who’s life takes on new meaning listening to the stories told by Ninnie Thredgoode about the Whistle Stop Cafe which was run by young Idgie Threadgoode who was given to drinking, gambling and remained fiercely loyal to her abused friend Ruth, whom she loved dearly.
Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher
(hosted by Nabs)
This is book 8 in the Dresden Files series, and I think the best one yet! We will also be discussing book 9, White Night, when it is released next year so this is the ideal time for a refresher! So where are all the Butcher fans?
The Sandman Graphic Novel Series by Neil Gaiman
(hosted by Jvstice)
As previously discussed in the author threads, we are making a start to discuss this superb series of graphic novels by Neil Gaiman. More information from Jvstice in the Sandman discussion board, so if you are a fan, or want to try one, sign up now!
You can find the signup threads for all of these books in the January 2007 board
*Please note: you will have to join the book group to be able to see this board. You can join the book group by posting in the thread in the Check-in Desk at top of the board*
Book Group Rules
Will be finalised very soon for 2007 but will not change much from 2006. Being a member of the book group entitles you to read and join in the book discussions, which you will not be able to see if you are not in the book group. Basically by signing up to the book group, you are agreeing to participate in the book group, whether that is joining a book group discussion, leading a discussion or other book group activity like, for example, ’52 Books’ contained in the Online Book Group area.
More news later when we have finalised the schedule, rules etc
