Online book group

tree house bag designI was wondering about setting up an online book group, and wondered if there would be any interest out there.  We could aim to read a book a month – but the good thing with online groups is that even if you don’t finish the book by the discussion date, you can still add your own thoughts when you have finished, and we can revisit earlier discussions.

Any takers?

I would also say that I belong to a book discussion board already, and if anyone does want a forum for discussing books more generally, as well as joining in discussions on particular books and group reads and other bookish things, I would recommend it.  It’s called Big Readers (it grew out of the BBC’s Big Read in 2003 – wish they’d do that again!), and some of us have been together since then, but new members are always welcome.  Go to http://bigreaders.myfastforum.org if you are interested.

But if you would be interested in a Tree House book group as well, just reply below.

    Since I posted this, I have joined another online book group run by a similar enterprise to the Tree House, based in nearby Nuneaton (though also looking for premises!). It’s the Big Comfy Bookshop (what a great name!), and we’re currently reading the first book, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. So for the time being, I’m promoting his online group, mainly because I don’t have time to run one myself! But also because it’s nice to support his venture. You can find the group on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/groups/488141307926544/
