Anyone interested in a Book Club?

Recommended Posts

BOOK CLUB DISCLAIMER (per forum mods):

Participation in this Book Club is strictly voluntary. Books are not pre-screened and may contain material or discuss issues which are unexpected, shocking, or even offensive. If a member is not comfortable with the given selection participation can end and, if desired, begin again when the next book is selected.

 

 

 

I know someone asked if anyone was interested. But I really miss my book club in Texas and the ones here suck! So I thought I would step up to start one here b/c I love my BDW girls! So heres what I came up with. Everyone could come up with a book and email them to me. Then I'd pick a girl (just for the first time) and send her numbers 1-10 (however many books submitted). Then that girl would choose a number and thats the book chosen. Then we give an allotted time to read the book then we'll open the floor for discussion. Then give that book a time allotted for discussion. Then whoever she chose like for example she chose my book for the discussion then I would choose the next number. I hope that makes sense.

 

So after the confusion above hahah anyone willing to give it a tryhuh.gif Oh and if the Mods are ok with this?? I thought we could delete each thread about a book as we finish so we don't take tons of room on the forum. I won't post my email until I'm sure we get people ok with this and the Mods don't see a problem. *whispers* pleeeeeeeeease....I love books and would love to see a book club on here!!! I promise to be good! Hahahah! Ok girls who's in?

I think it sounds great...

 

Just a couple thoughts:

 

1. If you're expressing opinions about things, remember that others may have a differing opinion. We are all for expression of opinion around here, just be sure it's delivered in a courteous fashion. Sometimes people get their panties in a bunch around here when someone disagrees with them.

 

2. While we certainly don't have any taboo topics, we generally try to stay away from "hot button" issues since we all really want to stay friends... i.e. abortion, religion, politics.

 

 

 

Count me in! I'll be able to participate & moderate :)

I totally agree! I think if everyone just stays courteous and stays on the book topic we'll be good. Ok so if you're interested just send me your name or BDW name (or both) to my email. I'll just email everyone through PM's on the forum when its their turn. My email is calia.anne@gmail.com and start sending your book suggestions.

ETA: If your book is chosen you can lead the discussion. ie. just post questions or something of that sort to get everyone started.

Great (!!) idea! I'm totally in. And I agree with the notion of staying away from hot button issues. Not that I necessarily want to read fluffy books exclusively (which, of course, I enjoy), but maybe we start with light fiction for people's first nominations, just to get our toes wet.

 

Oooh! This will be so much fun!

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
