So you know how we were going to turn this thing into a book club and that never happened? Umm, how about we start that this summer? You guys still interested?

Since we had only positive feedback about making this a book club as well, I think we'll just go ahead and do that. (I hope it's okay that I'm jumping the gun, Cat).

I thought that maybe we could start with books already on our exchange lists.

How do you guys want to go about this? Should I just pick eight or ten random books from the lists and then make a poll? Or do you guys want to make suggestions about what should be read?

Is there something you definitely will not read?

I was thinking that perhaps we could make this into a book club as well as a trading club.

Every month we read a book and discuss it. Those who have already read said book can lend it to someone who hasn't and then we can talk about it.

We can have a poll to decide what books to read. What do you guys think?

Hey guys!

I'm curious about the type of books you like to read. It would be nice to know so that we could make our lists a little more specific to the community.
