Bookworm Hangout?

  • B.K. Marcus

    Everyone in The Book Scene is certainly welcome and encouraged to join the Book of the Week group. I’d like to crowdsource the best way to do reading groups at Liberty.me.

    Anyone interested in trying a hangout tonight (Wednesday, 5/14) at 8 PM ET?

    We could meet in chat and maybe move to a Google Hangout if anyone’s interested.

    Let’s get together and discuss a book we are all reading, have read, or are wondering whether or not to read.

    Bring your ideas for which books you’d enjoy covering.

    This is a great idea. Should we start with liberty-minded classics and make it an online book club open to the public or just for us?

      Tiffany, do you mean the public public or the Liberty.me “public”?

      There will be overlap with Jeffrey’s 25 Classics, but I’m thinking if we do this as a member-driven schedule and agenda, it will be distinct.

      One thing I’d really like to discuss is what approach we take to selecting books. I don’t think we’ll be able to all read a new book every week and be ready to discuss it, but there are plenty of books that a lot of us have already read and would love to introduce to newcomers.

      Still thinking it through …

      (Hope to see you tonight!)

    You realize you’re making it difficult for Westerners and Hawaiians to participate, right? I guess there is no way to get around timezone problems.

    I guess people who have a problem with the time could reply.

    I may be able to keep an eye on the chat, but I live in Hawaii, so I will still be at work.

    We’re already talking about organizing something for our Asian bookworms, who are 12 or 13 hours off from US Eastern Time. Would that work any better for Hawaiians?

      B.K, this sounds good–most considerate, really– as my timing is always off for classes and such, being 8 hours ahead.
