We’re planning to select the books for July 2013-December 2013. Add your suggestions in this document, and then look for our poll where we’ll find out which books people want to read.
You can scroll over using the bottom button, or scroll down using the side button to read everything! So far, books have been suggested by Kate, Karen, Ayman and Dennis.
You can click on the underlined text “suggestions in this document” to get to the spreadsheet and enter more titles. We may gather enough suggestions and decide to think ahead to 2014.
Well I just read over all of the suggestions that were listed on the Blog. WOW is all I can say. We could be reading for quite awhile. How do we vote? For me, I could just start at the top and work my way down to the bottom. But, not too scientific. How about 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction, back and forth until we’ve exhausted the list for 2013-2014? Just a thought. Can’t wait for next club meeting. I have invited someone that expressed an interest in joining a bookclub. Also, am about 2/3 down with Persuasion. See you all at the end of the month.
Many suggestions were entered with the main idea to have a range of choices, and I’m thinking we don’t have to do them all, only the ones that most of us are interested in. The 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction, etc., etc. is a practical way to do it.
And every so often, like twice a year, we schedule a book from a local author, too.
We will make up a way to vote, either on-line or at the meetings, so stay tuned for that!
If you have more ideas for books, go ahead and enter them.
I’m only at Chapter 7 in ‘Persuasion’ so far, but the LibriVox chapter recordings are giving it another dimension.
I’ve listed a few books from my To Be Read list. I did list the authors,, but had no time to list the summaries. I am going to be at our meeting tomorrow. See you there.
could you make the book descriptions easier to read?I have to keep srolling over and up and down to match up the book title with the description.I have a 17′ laptop so I don’t think it’s my monitor.Perhaps a word attachment would work better.Thanks
These are not the books we are considering anymore. I embedded the Google Document in the blog entry, and it is not easy to navigate. You can directly access the Google Document at the link I provided. Here is that link:
Here’s the blog entry where we’re compiling the list of book suggestions for our next poll.
Where are we on the new selection/voting for the last three months of this year? The list that came up when I clicked on select books, was the old list from last time. Am I just ahead of the game?
@Kate, you are ahead of the game, and I am behind schedule. In this post, I solicit your suggestions. Please send them to me! https://maxwellbookclub.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/suggested-books-for-oct-dec-2013/
Ayman, I already gave you my 4 selections and I see that they are on the new list. Cool. I’ve started the Sociopath Next Door. Can’t wait for our club meeting this month. yikes!!
