February 2013

First, just a reminder to let me know if you will be able to stop by for some or all of our first chat of 2013, The Hobbit chat scheduled for Monday February 4 at 7:30pm (PST).

Next, let us discuss what we want to read for February. I have heard a lot of great recommendations (many of which have not been shared online yet *cough*SUSAN*cough*) and really there are many options to choose from.

For February, please fill out this Google form by Wednesday, January 30, at noon for each recommendation. Please limit your recommendations to 1-2. Check back here on Thursday for details on voting.

After February, we will maintain a list of recommendations and each month narrow the list down to a handful of options, and we then will vote. The Google form will continue to be open, and recommendations can be made at any time. The list will look something like this Google docs page. For the month of February, please submit your recommendation even if it already appears on this list, this list is just an example.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks and happy reading!

The Hobbit

It is already the end of January, when did that happen?

Is anyone interested and available for a February 4, 7:30 pm PST discussion?

We will focus on just the first third of the book, since that is what is covered in the first movie. We we discuss anything from casting choices, to the visual representation of the book, to just about anything you liked, disliked, or had no feelings about.

Let me know if you are interested. We will be using a new chat this time around, I have set up a chatango room for the club, check it out at

2013 - Books and Movies

Since we had a lot of fun last year reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and then watching the film together, this year I am proposing we do a books with movies theme.

It can be new movies releasing this year, or books that have long had a film adaptation. This will allow us to pick from a variety of genres, and will give us more to discuss as we will have a film and book to critique/analyze. We might not be able to watch together all the movies, as we did with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, since we are all geographically spread, we will set a date ahead of time to either watch the film together, or watch the movie by so that we can discuss.

I know it is already into January, but this month I am reading The Hobbit. Finally. Anyone interested is welcome to join me. Even if you haven't read it, if you have seen the movie, you will have much to contribute to the discussion later this month.

Let me know if you are interested. We can also start throwing around ideas now as to February's book/film choice.
