Hello there fellow USMB members! Modbert here, with a idea to liven up the board a bit without it involving politics. What I'm proposing naturally is something I know that has been tried here before. But hey, figure I'd give it the old college try. (See what I did there? ) That's right, a book club here at USMB! All members are welcome to join in for a discussion on books in general. However, what I also want to try and get off the ground is a biweekly or monthly discussion of least one book specifically. I figured those who are really interested can sound off, and we can see what we get going. To make it clear though, this thread is also a discussion about various books in general, not just discussion of one book. My recommendations (feel free to sound off and it's good if you mention the page # as we all read at different speeds and have different amounts of free time): To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. (Pages vary by copy but mine is 376 pages.) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. (325 Pages) The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie. (368 Pages) The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. (416 Pages) I already know that plenty of people have already read a number of those books, which is good since that means discussing them will be easier. If you're interested, feel free to state your recommendations. Also feel free to start posting about any book you enjoyed. Who knows, might find someone you totally disagree with enjoyed it as well.
