I don't really like the idea of posting and just labelling spoilers, as this can discourage discussion, and give people who are speed readers way more opportunity to post without actual dialogue from everyone. If you were in a real book club, would you call everyone up before the appointed meeting time to say "tell me if someone should hang up now, but what did you think of the scarlet guy battering the plum guy in the library with the candlestick? you did ?? great!! I know we only said to read to chapter 15, but I really wanted to share my thoughts now!!"

It's late and I'm very tired so hopefully someone made sense of that attempted scenario and can explain it better...




I've read both leading books before, and I'm fine with doing them again.



I'm so sorry snowbunny! I did read it, then completely forgot b/c I am a doof.


Can I just say that I'm REALLY excited that 1984 is in the lead now? I gotta remember to pack it!

Whatever way it's done Im fine with. I just have a tendency to read like 5 pages a day, so I might always be late. But whatever. I'm still in.

No worries....

Pick a number, cause I have. And I'd feel silly if I picked a number and then no one else did.




And I feel I'm suffiently bipartisan since I obviously voted for neither.
