I've enjoyed this too, even if my attempt to participate was lame. Wanted to expound a bit more on Monninger, but found myself holding back because....well, I've never engaged in a book discussion before! However, I feel this forum provides relevant space for such endeavors...

Ditto on Debskis' thoughts, create a forum [Admins, you listenin'?!] for book discussions, then within that forum create threads for individual books. I think a monthly discussion is doable, provided said book is NOT Moby, Ulysses, Bhagavad Gita, etc.

And perhaps Bubba's recent Book Club contribution could serve as impetus for the next selection? I'd vote for that.....

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

RE: The Book Discussion Group thread
I'm glad there's interest.
Thanks Brutus, I did just read the latest update on Bubbas' book club. I can still remember sitting in the living room one high school summer reading "Atlas Shrugged" (per 2112) and my dad walked by asking 'Is that book for school?" to which I replied no, it's for fun! He walked on scratching his head.
I am game for reading most anything too, including the Huxley. Here at the store we distribute quarterly Indie reads fliers for book groups which you can see on-line indiebound.org and pick a winner. No Fall flier yet, but lots of great books on the summer list. Border Songs by Jim Lynch was great. We can discuss the benefits of medical marijuana! Just sayin'...

Any interest in continuing the 'new' group?
I can make a list of suggestions. Understood if we're too busy; just started a photography class myself. (You're all forewarned!)

RE: The Book Discussion Group thread
That's great news. I know we're all busy this time of year. I can look over new 'popular' releases that hopefully should be on your local bookstore shelves and we can pick a winner. Perhaps nonfiction this time?

School and home going smoothly I hope?

School, is school.
Home....is a headache, that should go away in about 4 days when I get moved into it, and don't have to worry about the apartment too.

I'm hoping things smooth out for you.
Ironically, I just got an ARC of Monninger's next book today. Looks similar. Will start generating a list of possibilities.

I'll vote for biographical and autobiographical too!
