: : Hi Everyone!
: : Well, what do ya all think? Shall we have a book of the "2 month club"? The reason I say 2 months is so all of the busy people have time to read a book. Then we could all discuss the experience in the chat room or on the board. I think it would be great fun to share our thoughts on different themes and stories. Pehaps we could start out with a Sherman Alexie novel or collection of stories. We could aim for a December date.
: : I am off to Oregon for 1 week, so I won't be able to participate in everyone's thoughts until I get back. I will be leaving tomorrow morning.
: : Have a great day everyone,

: I think a book club would be a great idea. I'd vote for starting with the Cooper books since I haven't read them yet. As for reading deadlines, I'm part of a Jane Austen list where members read a chapter or two a week and discuss the books as they go along. Usually one member takes the lead in dissecting each book with others commenting. It works pretty well -- especially with a set schedule of small pieces to be read so everybody's all together and it's do-able for busy folks. Just a thought!
Is this the very same Jenifer that was at the gathering? - Good to hear from you and to know your still out there!
I think the " a chapter at a time" or so sounds like a good idea to me ! I couldn't imagine trying to discuss a whole book at a time the way we like to talk around here. I have LOTM AND the Cliff Notes and still have trouble finding focused, uninterrupted time to delve through the book and make any headway. So count me in, but only if at a working woman's pace. I've had to become quite the time thief of late when trying to find time to read. Thanks for the link, Dana, to Gayle's article - That'll give me something to steal a few minutes for tonight.
