NECROPOST.

But for a good cause. Do we have any plans to resurrect this at any point?

Sure if we get someone to be in charge like your good self

I've done a few read alongs but you need at least three active participants for it be worthwhile.

Which books were you thinking to do?

Hmm. I suppose I actually could take on the club for a few months, if the F-F mods were willing. As to books, I'd like to balance professional authors I've gotten to know as writing good stuff with people who are regulars on the F-F forums. It'd also come down to if I could actually get them to come on here and participate and, of course, if we actually have enough people involved. I'll noodle on it a bit and see what I can come up with.

I'd be game. We need critical mass, though. Figure 50% participation rate, so maybe a dozen people to start?

My time availability has been notoriously fickle, and will get worse in two weeks when my office moves downtown. I’ll join where I can. I love the desire to re-start this.

All right, I'll see if I can get a poll on who's interested. I think the biggest thing I want to ensure is that we have enough interest. I'd feel bad if I managed to get an author on here who might be really eager to talk about their book, but then we don't have anyone to read it. Not because it's a bad book, necessarily, but just because people aren't interested or have other stuff to do.

I'll probably have time in November, but not October
