We have come up with a new book club format we hope you are excited about it. First, we are going to read one book a month and hold the book club within a specific thread on the forum the entire time. There will be no formal questions (although there may be some occasional prompts). We will start the read on the first of the month and participants will have one month to complete their read. Those who want to participate, may post comments when ready (even if it is during the read). Because everyone reads at their own pace, please consider yourself advised that spoilers will be present but please do also use spoiler bars for serious spoilers. And because we know everyone loves to get together and discuss the books, once we have finished a book we will schedule a special End of Book Discussion Night which will take place live on a Sunday evening and will be very similar to what our book club has been traditionally.
The first month (October), we will read Eternal Kiss of Darkness. The EOB discussion night will be October 30th at 8:00 PM EST. Once we have read EKOD, we have decided to open up book club to other authors. We chose not to read TSOTG at this time because we wanted at least 12 months post release date to allow enough time to warrant a re-read. After the first of the year, we will add it back in the schedule (Feb). So…you may have noticed a shiny new thread called Book Club Nominations. As the instructions state, we want you to post your top three suggestions for book club reads. They can be titles you have already read or want to read. If you have been following the Other Authors forum, you know the members’ reading preferences. Please submit three titles before October 20. We will put the top three to a vote and that will create the order of book club reads for November, December and January!
What do you guys think of this approach? We hope it is going to be a lot of fun!
