I think that the Adventure of English sounds good. The problem with abridged vs. unabridged was for the current book; The Last Kingdom. I like the idea that the person who suggests the book chosen by the book club take the lead in discussing the book. Would you be willing to take the lead with the Adventure of English? Like Chris proposed for the movie club, we need some time lines for the book club. Since it takes longer to read/listen to a book than to watch a movie perhaps we would want to open discussion up for a week or so on the book for the next cycle (while the current book is being discussed) so that when we finish with one book, we have already decided on the next book. I set a somewhat arbitrary date for the current book as June 16th, partly so it wouldn't conflict with another book club I am in (that meets the fourth Thursday of each month) and because I will leave June 29th for two weeks in Scotland. I like the idea of beginning discussion of a book by the 2nd Saturday of a month, but still giving folks a month to read/listen to the book.What do folks think?
