Greetings to all who expressed an interest in online book group and a few not on Facebook who love to read and may want to join us. Please ignore the previous invite, as I screwed up and had to start over.
The first book will be : The Nine Pound Hammer by Jean Claude Bemis
It is fantasy about a boy in search of his father and the mythical people he meets on is journey, and highly recommended by a friend, a former English Literature teacher, who knows the author.
I had to exercise tremendous restraint when I learned that a new Stepehen King novel is out, because I knew he would not appeal to everyone :)
Anyway, here is the proposed schedule:
Every 2nd and 4th Monday at 8pm. I'll send the first message each week to get the ball rolling and then it is open season.
The book is 357 pages, and since it is the holiday whirl, how about a two month read, with bi-monthly online chat 'meetings' to discuss what we have read to date. If you want less time, it is up for consideration by majority rule.
Please let me know if this schedule works for you so we can establish a firm date.
At present: November 23/ 8pm
December 14 & 28/8pm
January 11 & 25/8pm
If this is not enough time to get the book and read 70 pages, I understand and we'll adjust and start on 11/30. Since November has 5 Mondays, we could take advantage of that and begin on the 30th if that is better.
Also, do you want a moderator to pose questions each time, or just free -style?
I guess that is all, hope you are as excited as I am.
