    I think she means what is the period of time do we have to read the book. Do we have one month, two weeks, etc.

      This sounds fun! My FI always makes fun of me b/c once I start reading a book I usually can't put it down until I read the whole thing! Count me in - I will email you as soon as I think of a book Calia! Thanks for doing this.

        That is so funny Betsy, I am excactly the same way. Sometimes I think it's a curse.

            I would love to do it. I've never been part of a book club either but I was an English major in college. I LOVED discussing the books. That's the best part.

            One question- do we nominate a book we have already read or do we nominate one we want to read?

              Good question, I was going to nominate one I've already read so I know it's good (well at least to me..haha).

                  I've never been part of a book club, but I used to LOVE to read when I was younger. Now it seems like I either don't have time or don't know how to pick a good book.

                  I'd like to try to be a part of this and get into reading more, but I don't know if I have a book suggestion yet, is that okay? I really haven't been in a bookstore in a long time, lol!! I have no idea what books are good right now!

                    It's ok if you don't have one yet. Thats kind of the point of this to get you to read something. You suggest a book you've read already. That way you can lead the discussion. Just email me with your suggestion. My email is calia.anne@gmail.com.

                      Ok so far we have 17 members ...Saraha are you in or just think its a good idea hahah....
                      I've made a spreadsheet to keep track and keep organized. I only have 5 book suggestions but 17 ppl so I need your suggestions so we can get started.
                      I think depending on how long the book is depending how long you have to read it. Say it's 50 pages compared to a 400 page book?
                      So when should we choose our first book. I say give everyone until Friday to put in their suggestions and then everyone can get the book over the weekend. Or we could wait longer and make sure everyone who wants to participate lets me know??
