Welcome (future official name) book club members. This is for all those reading the current text (The Prince by Machiavelli) or anyone who just wants to listen to people talk about said text.
I am Cindy, but you can call me cc.
Amanda Esq and I have discussed different possibilities of how to make this long distance book discussion work and for this first round we have decided to have two discussion forums, 1) this blog post and 2) a (skype) group chat to follow.
Now, let me explain to you what those forums will look like
1) To start off, please add a comment to this post. In the post include:
a) your name and brief introduction
b) any comments about The Prince or anything you would especially like us to discuss in the future chat
c) the best time this Saturday, Sunday, or Monday for you to partake in said chat (in Pacific time, please). Keep in mind that Amanda and I will try to choose a time that works best for the majority.
d) suggestions for a group name
Feel free to comment to others and use this to get to know each other.
In the future we will have a blog specific to the book club, but until we have a name Amanda Esq and I didn't want to get one started.
2) As for the chat, this allows us an opportunity to discuss in greater detail. Anything mentioned on this blog (read b) above) will be discussed, and then some.
This first time around we will be trying different things to see what works and what doesn't. Please hang in there with us as we try and make this the best it can be.
Ok, now get to posting!
