    Infinite Jest or Mating both sound interesting.

    Question: what kinds of things would we discuss pertaining to the book(s)?

    Whatever we want to... some books have book club guides in the back, and that's a good place to start, but we don't have to stick to that....

    In the book club I was in a few years ago, we would talk about just about anything related to the book. What we thought about the characters and their decisions, what we thought the overarching theme of the book was, what we thought about the writing style, etc. etc.

    Some of the book club guides are really good, others seem a bit lame to me.

    That John Muir book sounds interesting too. So many decisions!

    OK, here's a nomination:
    Anathem by Neal Stephenson (But it's huge, so people won't want to read it, even if it might suck you in)

    Nominations now closed. Below is a list of the books nominated. Some votes have already been cast; those are indicated next to the books.

    (Jock, Arc, mmhmm, I counted the votes books you already mentioned, because it seemed like you were placing a vote; if you want to amend what you said, let me know. ThatGirl and exAstrisSpes, I couldn’t tell if you were officially voting, so please let me know what your vote is!)




    Berger, Thomas: Little Big Man

    Charriere, Henri: Papillon (PS)

    Brooks, Max: World War Z - 2

    Davies, Robertson: Fifth Business

    Franzen, Jonathan: Freedom

    Hesse, Herman: Siddhartha - 1

    Voting will remain open for 24 hours. You can vote for more than 1 if you can’t decide.

    Whatever book we choose, we will begin discussing on Feb 1, but probably limit it to the first few chapters since it’s coming up fast!

    i believe we have 2 votes for Infinite Jest.*

    in which case, we'd need to vote between that, and ULOB and WWZ?


    *my vote goes to this, given the final list of nominations.
