As some of you may know, or have figured out, I love to read. I guess you could say that I have a passion for it, since there have been more than a few times when I've stayed up until 5:00am to read a particularly captivating book. What I miss, however, is the interaction and deep reading that I did as a high school and university student. I miss the rapport of having to debate my interpretations or discuss the bigger issues that come out of a passage/chapter/paragraph.
So...I was wondering how many of you would be interested in creating a P-momma Book Group (of sorts)? I would probably create another blogger, linked to this one, so that people could follow along if they didn't want to read, but not have their day tied up schlepping through off topic posts about the Book Group. I think we'd need at least eight people to do this right. The format would be as such:
1. The book is chosen and each member has a week to obtain it.
2. We break down the book into chapters (the number of chapters depends on the size of the book).
3. Each week, I will create a post in the PMBG blogger that introduces (with a quick summary) the chapters that were assigned to be read. In comments, we can all share our thoughts and discuss it.
The books will be chosen by vote. As we near the end of discussing the first book, I will post a poll (with the titles of three possible books).
If anyone knows of a specific website that doesn't anything like this, that I could set up for my most awesome readers, then I would love to get feedback and ideas. :)
