    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??
    I think Friday sounds good!

      Sounds good. Ok so friday I close submissions. People can still join the bookclub whenever of course we get new members all the time and that wouldn't be fair. I will then send the chooser numbers to choose from over the weekend and post the book here when she chooses.
      From my "list" these ppl need to send me book suggestion to put in the hat.

              I don't know but I had the same dilemna choosing. In the end I went with a book that is one of my faves and everyone I've given it to loves...when we get around to it I hope you all feel the same!

                would it be okay for me to join, but not suggest a book, therefore not leading a discussion, at least not just yet?

                I ask this because the last book I read was probably 10 years ago, (yes, I'm serious) my reading lately consists of websites and magazines!

                  I'm having a different dilemma. I'm not sure if the books I read and loved are too out there. I love a lot of the classics and haven't read too much light reading. Any one like Toni Morrison? I'd like to suggest a book of hers but her style might throw some people off.

                      I'm going to preliminarily say I'm in, but I'd rather not suggest a book just yet. Also never been in a book club, so leading a discussion seems like too much just now. I also am likely buying a house in the next month and moving, so I can't guarantee I'll read the chosen book - but I'm going to try! If I don't make it for the first book, I will for the second :)
