@CraftADDchick -- In addition to what DesignVigilante mentioned, our group would be "secret" so no one will see that you have joined, or what you write. So Student A from your class (hell, even your mum & sister) would not know you're in a book group, and what you were posting.

Facebook is mildly frightening when I see how many people have their profiles/information/etc. set to "Public." But fortunately they have made ways to guard your security and privacy. And being smart with whom you are friends and what you write to whom. I knew a guy who lost his job for writing work-related things on his page when he was "friends" with most everyone in his office. Genius at work. >_<

ETA: MareMare, do you mean Perceval? We read parts of it. Without going into literary theory, my professor did not like that story very much, lol. So we skimmed pieces.

I am seriously thinking about joining this. I've never been in a book club before, so from that aspect it would be interesting, and the only book on the list that I've read is Doomsday Book.* Several are on my "to read" list, and a couple are even on my nightstand right now. I am a little curious about how it would work with all the different groups of swappers reading books from different groups. What if there's only a couple of people signed up for a particular group? Seems like the discussion would be more lively with more participants. Should we have a second choice group?

*ETA: Just remembered I also read To Kill A Mockingbird, but it was my freshman year in HS, so it's been a while.

I'm hoping for  at least 4-6 people for each group..there is a spot on the sign-up to list your first and second choice groups. If a group only gets a couple people then we'll drop that group. I might read more than one book to add more to the discussion too, and I'll ask Nymeria to as well lol! (I like to volunteer her for stuff!)  Smiley

There will be threads for each book so it won't get confusing Smiley

I was an English major, dude. I'm used to reading at least 3 books at one time, so I'll definitely do two. Smiley
