I don't think read along will work, I've only seen the Malazan one take off with me, Jeni ,Xia and Windy so I think you defiantly need three or four people who post to replies otherwise you get disillusion and think you are posting to just thin air.

I have noticed people vote for books there have just recently read as there enjoy it and then don't participate in the book club when it wins, the The Lions of Al-Rassan had a lot of nominations but less then half of those who said what a great book it is hardly posted in that book club because I felt there already read it.

I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

How about if you move the voting to the book discussion as it may be a bit hidden here or a reminder to vote there like there have reminders to vote on the monthly contest

We should do a book club for Saraband new novel.

Say we do a read along in September? I'm game.

Great idea but tough for Saraband.

I'm not sure I would like to have my novel as a book club read.

I know that some of the authors who were forum members and whose book we read promised to not read the topics to let people be able to speak free. Not sure they really did, but you may see where there may be a problem. ;)
