Anyone interested in a Book Club?

Recommended Posts

Oh.. I'm so excited that you chose my book suggestion! I hadn't realized but luckily had started reading it anyways. So far it's interesting. I'm oddly intrigued by circus life. I know some people ordered it and stuff so when should we aim to start discussing ladies? ( not that i'm done yet)

Has anyone already read this book? A little warning might have been nice about some of the content...

I don't think any of us had read it before except the person who submitted it. Or even if they had. But its not a requirement to read the book to submit it. I just choose a number randomly to choose the book from the submissions I get from you guys. So I read it for the first time with you girls. I have finished it though. I read it in a few days. But if we want to make sure the books are "clean" I think we should take a vote and then when you submit a book you have to know that its alright? I don't know. I'd like to hear some other thoughts on it as well. Personally I don't mind it. If its too graphic I skim over it.

I submitted the suggestion for the book and had not started reading it when I did. I am a member of "goodreads" which is a great website. It's a network of friends posting reviews about books. I had several people suggest the book.

I guess I'm not really sure what is inappropraite about the book. It can be graphic at times though so that may be it. I still think that it's a good read but maybe we could make up some guidelines that we should follow? I'm not sure cause like I said I hadn't read the book before so I wouldn't have known too much about the content. This is the blurb my friend wrote about it on my goodreads page and it sounded appealing. I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

 

Read in June, 2007

recommends it for: historical fiction fans

 

A colorful introduction to the dark side of the traveling circus business in the early 20th century, with accompanying photos. Murder, romance, suspense, humor and circus animals - what else do you need?

I don't think we should censor our book club. As long as it's not pornographic I am cool with it. Perhaps we can give a warning. I wonder if books are rated like movies?

I'm not sure if books are rated like movies? Although if they aren't I bet they will be one day!

 

I'm not for censorship either Yari. I think we are all adults and can decide if something is for us or not on an individual basis. How about a disclaimer?

Sound good ladies? If so I'll add it to the first page of this thread so it won't be missed.
