    Maybe we should change the length of reading. This was a small book so a month might be too much.

      I'm down with whatever Calia...I'm just thinking that a month will give people lots of time for getting married in that month maybe, or any other personal things that might come up. And for the speed readers...well, we could just wait until closer to the discussion time to read it! A month is typical for a Book Club isn't it??

      And if everyone happens to have the book finished early then we can discuss it early...play it by ear maybe??

        I finished Room in 3 days...very quick read! Can't wait to see what the next book is...in the mean time I just started The Help today.

        I almost suggested The Help for next month!  i think I am going to go ahead and read it.

          I agree... some people may have vacations or weddings coming up, so this would still allow everyone to participate!

            I'm outta here on the 16th for my Wedding, so I won't be reading while we're away.  So keeping it the month I personally think it's a good idea. However if we find people finishing up the books, just go ahead and pick the next.  

            I finally got my books today.  So I'll start Sarah's Key tonight sometime

              I agree! Even thought it only takes a few days to read a book some people have other things to juggle as well. I just got back from Mexico last night and have a wedding this weekend. I think one month would be easier for the group as a whole! Maybe those who are reading The Help could discuss in the meantime! I loved that book! Chocolate Pie anyone??

                  The book we are reading currently is Room by Emma Donoghue and next month book is Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay. You shouldn't of got a PM. We post on here the book. I only PM if you didn't submit a book, but you did so you're all good.

                      It's discussion day today right!!

                      I've never done the book club thing so I'm not quite sure how this works!
