Book Discussion Group

Part of the fun of blogging is the comments; the dialogue back and forth. It's what changes blogging from a self-published newsletter to a form of community.

It can be great fun chatting about a book, with the discussion taking place informally over different blogs and posts and comments. The main drawback is when there is an awesome discussion going on and you haven't read the book yet!

Michele at Scholar's Blog solves the problem: let's have a book discussion group!

The first book will be King of Shadows by Susan Cooper; more info on that at Scholar's Blog.

The discussion itself will start February 6 at Scholar's Blog Spoiler Zone.

What do you have to do? Head over to Scholar's Blog and in the comments let Michele know that you'll be participating. Read the book and join in the discussion!

I haven't read King of Shadows yet; but I do own it and this is just the motivation I need to dust it off.

Liz, thanks for the mention... I'm delighted that you'll be participating - I love this book, which is why I chose it for the first discussion...

That is such a great idea! I was trying to invoke some discussion with the Hattie Big Sky on my blog, but a formalized book discussion group makes much more sense. I don't know why we didn't think of it before. I'll say something on my site as well.

It occurs to me now that I should have written this on Michele's blog, so I'll like go there and tell her "great idea."
