Hi guys - fraid I'm a little pre-occupied with stuff at the moment and won't be able to participate in the Book Club for a while. Will rejoin when things settle down again

Happy Reading!
We'll miss you Sid - come back soon!!

Dilemna!!

Four people have given me nominations. 3 people have nominated the same book! If we stick to our usual rules you are not supposed to vote for your own nomination. Am wondering if we should just read the popular choice ??

Lets just read the popular choice, that would be my vote! Save a lot of hassle!

May I make a suggestion for a future read? Well, several of them? What if we went a few months where one of us DS bookclub members just chose the book? Either perhaps our favourite book, or one which you have read that you don't think got the attention it deserved? It would mean that everyone gets at least one read that they really want others to enjoy, that they can either take the month off or do a re-read?

We could all take it in turns, it would take care of the "admin" side for a bit too! And the person who picks, starts the discussion thread?

What do we think?

I think that's an excellent idea Lizzy.

Hi Guys - we've lost our way a bit here.

Does everyone want to continue ?
Should we fix a date for The Hundred Year Old Man ?

I don't even know what happened to me, but I'm back (I hope!). I used to keep DS open on my laptop and do other things on my PC, but my laptop died, and I can't seem to get used to using my PC for browsing DS. I've also generally slowed down on my reading this year, and I'm trying to turn that around. I have to get caught up on the last two books and just downloaded The Hundred-Year-Old Man.

The idea of us taking turns of choosing the book is okay by me (months after the rest of you decided to do it).

Shall I just open a thread or does anyone want to have a live "chat" about this one ?

Hi Pink lady

To be honest I think the book club has died a death - it has been getting harder and harder to keep it going. IMHO we need at least 6 - 8 people committed to reading the book every month or so and I just don't think we have that any more.

Hi all

I haven't ventured in here before, but exams have finished and I have a lot of free time now and I love reading. Was wondering if anyone fancied reading anything autumn/winter themed? What with the cold and dark nights I thought that something cosy and feel good might be nice.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Babycakes

I am happy to read a book again with the club if you can get enough interest!

Hi

I haven't been here for ages but am ready and willing to carry on now. Please don't ask me to choose a book though. I'd dither about for weeks!

I'm happy to suggest some Christmassy/Winter books, however they're very easy reading. What with all the wrapping and work I have to do I like my books to be uncomplicated but if anyone has any suggestions I'd be more than happy for them to take the lead

Things seem to have stagnated somewhat, any idea what's going on with this?
