We tried this a while ago and it didn't work out too well. I do like the idea and would be willing to give it another shot.

Yep, remember that well. We had a heck of a time voting on the book to read. First was a suggestion thread, then a voting thread. We tried picking 2 books - something classic, and something modern. Then we had threads, with specific questions to discuss so we stayed on topic. About 15-20 people participated. I love to be in on it, but how would one go about picking the book? Last time, it was a two month process...one for picking and reading, and one for discussing. In the second month the next book choosing overlapped with the discussion of the last choice.

Wow, I hope we can work out something that will be faster!

I'm in. As far as picking a book, maybe we could put a few titles to a vote?
Thanks for all the responses! I'm excited, I think we can make this work!

Option 1:
Nominate 1 book that you would like to read and we will vote from the list of submitted books.

Option 2:
Mention your favorite genre. I can put together a list of books we could choose from.

Option 3:
We can choose from the following books I randomly picked from NY Bestseller list.

1-All The Light We Cannot See-Anthony Doerr
http://www.amazon.com/All-Light-We-...?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403741886&sr=1-2

2-The Invention of Wings-Sue Monk Kidd
http://www.amazon.com/Invention-Win...s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403741922&sr=1-31

3-The Husband's Secret-Liane Moriarty
http://www.amazon.com/Husbands-Secr...s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403741943&sr=1-39

4-Me Before You-Jojo Moyes
http://www.amazon.com/Me-Before-You...s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403741985&sr=1-51

5-The Light Between Oceans-M.L.Stedman
http://www.amazon.com/Light-Between...s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403741985&sr=1-52


So first things first, vote on which option you prefer. The one with the most votes wins. We'll go with majority rule, okay?


It would be great if we could start this by July. Am I being too optimistic if we can get it done by July 15th? :P That should give everyone enough time to get the book. Please let me know what you think :biggrin:

Option 3 sounds easiest I've read a few of them. I'd go with invention of wings if I could vote now lol. I wouldn't mind rereading me before you or the husbands secret though. Fingers crossed this works out :smile:

I think July 15 is reasonable. No problem here. I think Option 3 would work well - especially since you have already put together a list of books! I'm sure that would help with getting things up and running.
But that's just my vote!

I also vote for option #3. I think that will narrow it down enough and the books are bestsellers so hopefully they are interesting and well written. I was thinking this same thing today when I was looking at the NYT bestseller list.
