I suggested this book on Tuesday, and several of you seem to like what I posted about it. I have been hesitant about jumping on the very first book mentioned because it does not allow others to suggest anything. Also, people are still arriving and trying to understand how to blog, like Carole (Caboose). She is having a problem with her blogger identity, and I think she has a book to suggest.
Here's what I think we should do:
1. The Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson will be our first book together here; let's label it OSB for consistency.
2. We'll start suggesting books for next time and make a list of them in the sidebar.
3. About two weeks before time for a new book choice, we'll take a vote and see what should be next.
4. In the meantime, I'll outline a reading schedule for this book -- which I have NOT read yet, or even looked at -- so give me time.
5. Seeing requests for a schedule and questions before I even pick up the book is scary; put yourself in my position and think about it.
6. I'll have some questions ready about a week into our reading; maybe I'll be lucky and find discussion questions online, though usually those are for book clubs who have already completed the book by the time they discuss it.
7. As my various online discussion groups have done before, we'll talk about three or four sections of the book, after the group has had time to read that part.
What do you think? Do we have a consensus on this plan? Carole, I think you can make comments, can't you? Let me hear some discussion about my plan, everybuddy.
