dear true believers
ok thats it, it's high time we got our book-wormie asses in gear. not to say that our asses are wormie, I'm so sorry to have provided that imagery. ick!
I'm going away soon. I'll be back on march the 7th. I finally got a copy of the book.
can we all agree to finish the book by the end of march? and to those of you diligent members who have already finished it, feel free to discuss it with each other. don't let the slackers hold you back.
if you feel like maybe you'd even like to hold the discussion at the end of THIS month, feel free to do so in my absence. not everyone needs to participate in every book. you can always sit out. ok, I'm going to start the book tonight.

hey y'all... newbie in the room! the idea of a book club has always intrigued me, however, i'm really shy and don't have a lot of confidence in my ability to articulate my thoughts/responses in discussion. hopefully this will be a good vehicle for bringing me out of my shell. i'm also a slow reader and we all know life has a habit of happening, so, i'll be lurking a lot and posting here and there.
fyi: for those of you who are still looking, i came across the Edible Woman while perusing barnes & noble in bethesda, gift card in hand. $12.95
I'm really excited about this, thanks lizz for getting it started and to everyone else for keeping it going!

so we are nearing the end of the month of january and my question is does anyone want an extension? our first discussion ought to take place around the 31th/1st. some people have said that this book is hard to find. I confess I haven't yet found it myself, but I'm hoping to soon.
should we extend our first deadline?? Current Mood: predatory

well, the polls are in. we will be reading a new book once a month. our first book is the Edible Woman, so I say get your hands on a copy and be ready to discuss by the end of january, since I hate to start things mid month.
I hope everyone had/is having an excellent holiday! and not to worry, if your book wasn't chosen this month, it probably will be next month.

well chums, I think it's time we laid down some rules and stuff.
first off, I'd love to hear all your suggestions on what to choose as our first book. also, I'd like some input as to how often we read a book. monthly, bi-monthly, whatever. we should set a date by when to finish each book, but feel free to post whatever you think or any questions or points you want to bring up in the interval.
one of the most important rules of this club is that should a new harry potter book ever come out, we will drop whatever we are reading, and read that.
Jen, since you have a paid account I'd like you to help me by conducting those nifty polls so we can decide which book to read first. everyone post a suggestion or concur with someone else's suggestion, and then ms. Jen, if you please, make one of those cute polls so we can decide.
so far the suggestions stand as:
me--villa incognito by tom robbins
eitan--jesus' son by some guy I can't remember.
