I would enjoy participating in a discussion group, I belong to several.
Having to read a particular book or voting on a particular book to read
each month could become confusing. Can't there be several threads or
discussion taking place at the same time? A person or list member could
participate in, lurk on, or ignore whatever threads they want.
The main reason I joined this list is I enjoy the works of Tolkien and
other science fiction and fantasy literature. Maybe I just might want to
hear what others have to say and chime in when I have something
constructive to add?
