PostSubject: Book Club Poll    20th July 2012, 12:59 pm

I was hoping to make a book club where we could discuss our favorite book series and maybe get each other interested in each others favorite books.

Members:
Sailor Selene
Sailor Venus
Anjyu
Lady Orion
Crystalsetsuna
Tsuki-no-Kagayaki
Averi
Harper
Verdandi

How it works:
We are going to get together once a month and talk about a book that one of the members in the group chooses. You don't have to read the full book, but be forewarned that there may be spoilers if you haven't read it all. You don't have to do every book with us and you don't have to be a member to join in the conversation.

NOTE: I do have one rule though. Please pick books in order. I don't want to start in the middle of a series because it might get confusing.

SECOND NOTE: In accordance to the rules of this forum book need to be PG-13.

Rotation:
Sailor Venus
Anjyu
Lady Orion
Crystalsetsuna
Tsuki-no-Kagayaki
Averi
Harper
Verdandi
Sailor Selene

This Month: Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
We will be discussing it on Saturday September 29th. Not sure about a time yet. It depends on what position I will have working on the shows of this semester.

Sounds good! I'd prefer a manga reading club though, since I'd actually read it xD

I have not. I did a quick search of the series and it seems interesting.

I'm willing to read whatever. How about we decide on an order of participants? We could rotate between participants in an orderly fashion and each participant would be allowed to choose which book he or she wants the book club to read next.

I'd be willing to participate/help with this; just sayin' I've got some interest Very Happy I like the idea of maybe having a novel and a manga club separately? Maybe the manga club could explore other mahou shoujo - or just shoujo manga that are similar to sailor moon?

That's a great idea! I'm up for reading whatever. I love reading do it doesn't matter to me. Does anyone have any kind of books that they don't like?

Great idea Averi Very Happy ! I don't know how much time I have for reading nowadays (sob) but I could at least be in the shoujo manga book club^^!

A core novel is everyone reading the same book at the same time and discussing it.

I would definately join a shojo manga book club. I find most, but not all, things that wander off of shojo are either really weird, too sexually, or too gruesome for me.

I'll totally pick a book, if no one minds. I normally hate romance, but this one makes me squeal.

Peony in Love by Lisa See

Or I could be a complete nerd and choose this one

Titanic's Last Secrets by Brad Matsen

Or I could fan-girl over Broadway and choose this one (I'm a huge fan of history and anthropology books.)

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

Or something you can likely find for free (i.e. a classic)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Or I could stop providing ridiculously long lists of books for us to choose from. Believe me, I cut it down. I had more to choose from.

Snow white and the huntsman

The Night Circus

Memoirs of a Geisha

Any of those books are fine.How about we have Venus pick first since she posted some ideas first and then Anjyu can be second. I think these books are going to need to be monthly things just so that everyone has the chance to get them and read them. Is that okay?

Oh geez, but I am so indecisive... It is a curse. Uh...

Anyone have a favorite genre? I don't have science-fiction or horror.
