Not quite sure about the logistics of an online group but I'm sure with all the bright people here we can do it
So how about these for a starter on the rules ?
1. One book "discussed" every two months chosen by the next Group member in line. Chooser starts a discussion thread other contribute freely.
2. Group open to any TiMS member.
3. Any fiction or poetry or factual but no *medical* commentries available internationally in softback.
4. No compulsion to read to the finish any "pick of the month".
So any takers sign up here and if by the end of August we have 8 people we'll start in October - winter nights closing in here in Northren hemisphere what better than curling up with a good book! Sunny days in Aus so get on the beach with that relaxing read!
I am what I am
I agree that the book selections should not be medical commentaries. The other guidelines seem okay, I guess. This is new to me, so I'm not quite sure. With all the people on this site (lurking or not) it shouldn't be too difficult to find 8 for a book group.

Heinlein's quote is great advice for those who deal with the type of fatigue that most of us have to contend with.
As for science fiction, there are so very many different types out there... humorous, hard-core science, adventures, human characters or not ... and more. Hehe ya, I've read a lot of sci-fi
So it's possible you may find an author's style that may appeal to you.
That's true for any type of fiction.
With sci-fi, there are galaxies out there to explore
I'm looking forward to the reading group and the multitude of selections out there for us to read; whatever type of books they are, it'll be fun
It's the excitement of "the read"! And since we're a bunch of people from different parts of the globe, that adds to the fun as well.sh8un wrote:ok...this is going to be embarrassing but here I go. I don't read much (I know it's not a shocker to some of you) but would love to. I have never joined a reading group. In fact, I am not really sure what I am getting into. I think it is where a bunch of ppl read a book and then discuss it. Right? I feel so brilliant. count me in. I am joining so that maybe you guys may enjoy a laugh or two. Where is my Dictionary?
You'll do great!!! And I'm with you in that I've never been a member of a reading group either.
