I'd also like to invite all of YOU to participate! The plan is to cover one book a month, selected in consensus. (We can all make suggestions on books we'd like to read and discuss, and choose one as a group.) We're starting with Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Fiction or nonfiction is fair game. We all have pretty different fields (gooeyduck is an architect, bain_easag is a physicist researching sustainable power sources, darthabsinthe is an anthropologist, bootsuu is a programmer, etc.), so we've agreed to resist the temptation to suggest esoteric books in our field that we find really enlightening but others may struggle with.
If you're interested, leave a comment and I can send you the URL of the online forum. I'd love to recruit enough local people to actually have in-person book club meetings - it would really help me with motivation and make it that much more fun. :~) Yeah, I know, I have a lot of other stuff to read too, but it's important to do a little recreational reading now and then! (I'm still working my way through Overthrow, which incidentally I'd love to be able to discuss in a book-club-like forum. :~))
