First post on possibility of new book is here.
There have been a lot of threads on TL lately about books/writing/reading. This got me thinking, TL is a community, and a lot of us are into reading...Book Club?
So I am guessing we pick a book, and then 2 weeks (just example, can be less/more) for reading, and then discuss said book. This thread is where we should see if anybody is in, and decide our first book.
Here are my ideas, feel free to agree/disagree.
1. A lot of people in various book threads have said they were really into Enders Game by Orson Scott Card, so I thought we could use that as the first book, but as I said before the process should be democratic, so suggest others if you wish.
2. Since TL is an international community, we should pick books that are relatively widely available. Idk, no obscure titles only available in certain countries.
So, yeah, discuss.
If you want to be in, but don't have anything to say in the thread, please just post saying "I would join" or something, so we can get a good idea of how many people are interested.
Alright, Fiction it is. (there used to be a poll here.)
New poll, I took the suggestions in the thread that weren't ender's game (for reasons mentioned in the thread) and weren't suggested by posters with <10 posts and very little time at TL.net. Posters like that disappear quite often, and, at least for this first book, I don't want to get saddled with the book choice of a guy than vanishes. Fair? Not really. Do I feel bad about it? Nope. Sorry, call me jaded if you must. Anyways, here are the 5 options for the first five books.
Poll closed, 1984 won.
Oh, and don't vote unless you are participating please.
