Since we're a week or so into July let's go for something probably a little shorter.  SUGGEST BOOKS HERE and let's try to have a vote in the next few days

Also I should state that I will provide the book in EPUB, MOBI and PDF if at all possible.  And whatever that new Amazon format is

I think we should have longer to read through things than just a month cuz I'm illiterate and we should assign the book choosing to a different person every time.
If the book selection is not done by committee or whatever than it will be more likely to be something that we wont normally read, which is the point of the book club (yeah???).
Also balls.

Oh yeah I guess that does make a lot more sense.  Well then FIRST OFF we should figure out how long we want to spend on each book.  I think a month is fine, any longer than that seems too slow to me.

i have to point out that clayton has read ONE book int he last 3 years and I read half of it to him. THen it got good and he stayed up all night reading the rest. so his statement on it being "too slow" made me giggle. I do agree with him though.

A month should be good unless the book is like 900 pages long... but I hope it's not because that's really long. How should we go about doing the months? We can write everyone who wanted to do it's name down and I can draw them from a hat?

The walking dead sounds good! I enjoy comics. Well I've only read one really.

I suggest the American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

I don't want to read the Walking Dead, mostly because I'm a big baby and it never stops being depressing. A constant cycle of rape and death is not my idea of fun.

I think one thing we should decide first is the general area well be exploring. Fiction/nonfiction? Strictly text or graphic novels included? Any genres everyone is OK with avoiding?

woaaaaaah james. That's like cutting out secret life from your TV show selection.

there are always exceptions to the rules if someone post a suggestion and we all read the description and most of us decide it sounds terrible then of course we wont read it. but I don't think genres should be limited. My opinion. I'm willing to have a month we read manga. Just saying.

Ender's Game is excellent, the rest of the series is total garbage
