Do we want to aim for books that none of us have read yet? In that case, would we want to work from a list of recommended books and eliminate the ones that some of us have already read?
What if we each submit a title we'd like to read, put them in a hat and draw?
Most of the books my last book club did were in the genres of fiction and memoirs. That seemed to work for everyone. We could start there, and branch out if there is something that we really want to read. Thoughts?
I just joined the forums, but I live in Durham and would love to join the triangle group. Is it okay to bring our infant? My daughter is still in her fourth trimester, so I'd have to bring her to a meeting.
And, YAY for another Durhamite!
Since we have some people who are interested in the club, but can't do Sundays, could we rotate the day? Maybe a Sunday afternoon one time, then a Saturday, then a weeknight? Or would that be too much of a scheduling nightmare?
As far as time on Sunday... would 1 or 2 work ok? Anytime in the afternoon is ok with me, but not morning.
Since no one has suggested any titles, let me toss out this list as a possible starting point:
These are titles for which the Wake County libraries offer a book club kit. With the kit, the library gathers enough copies of the book for your club. You get to check them out for longer than the normal checkout time (up to 7 weeks!) and you get a discussion guide with questions for your club meeting. One person picks up the kit with copies of the book for everyone and distributes the books to the club members. It's pretty convenient for book clubs.
