books R us
Happy New Year bookworms, lol.|
As this is a new year, I’ve decided to make some changes to the community in the hope that it will become a lot busier.
Firstly, the way in which books are discussed will go from being a face to face thing to a solely online discussion. This is because we’d start talking about the book and then go off on a tangent about something else and the book is forgotten. Its only natural, lol.
Secondly, I would like the community to have more of a flurry of conversation, discussion and if necessary debate about it. I know the questions posted are answered, but it would be nice if there were more than 3 comments to them, lol. A heated debate or something, agreeing/disagreeing with what other people have said etc.
Thirdly, all book reviews are welcome – be it knitting books to sci- fi books to short stories. Everything and anything!!!
Fourthly, the books in the following list are the books suggested when the community was created. If I remember, I’ll post a request for new books for 2008 in September or so if the community is still alive.
Finally, here’s the new routine for the community. The title of the first book will be posted at some stage during the first week of the month. Questions for discussion will then be posted at the start of week 3 as will the title of the next month’s book. This gives you two weeks to read and two weeks to discuss the chosen book. A reminder of the next month’s book will be posted at the start of the next month. Everyone happy with that??
So, here we go then:
January The Secret Agent - Conrad
February Angels and Demons - Brown
March Da Vinci Code - Brown
April Fellowship of the Ring - Tolkien
May The Wonderful story of Henry Sugar and Six more - Dahl
June Little Women - Alcott
July The Picture of Dorian Grey
August Memoirs of a Geisha
September The Two Towers - Tolkien
October 39 Steps
November History of Love
December Return of the King – Tolkien
I’ve tried to have the list interspersed with short books as well as long ones, for a bit of variety and so you can do other reading once you get the short ones done and post reviews etc.
