Thanks to John for great moderation and questions at our last meeting on The Unthinkable, and to Andrei for additional questions and interesting background.
I’m looking forward to our meeting coming up next Thursday.
I’ll be posting a new poll next Friday for January's meeting as there's no meeting in December. Remember that any book suggestions go on the online discussion board and that fellow members vote in polls sometimes based on your descriptions alone, so persuasion helps. Last month I added a profile question for new members asking for book suggestions and this has resulted in a slew of suggestions that I’ve posted there on their behalf. (Thanks new members and welcome!).
Our book next week “The Spirit Level Delusion” is on a topic that can be divisive. In addition to some groundrules that I sent for the last meeting, I’ve added a quote that I find helpful in deciding whether a comment is appropriate for a discussion. I've posted the groundrules on the discussion board and will send them to attendees next week.
Discussion questions are always welcome. Send me any that you may have for next week.
At the next meeting, I’d like to hear your feedback about the club – what’s going well, what you think could be improved. Last year we had an organizational meeting in early January after Ian stepped down as organizer and I’m open to doing that again if members are interested, or perhaps after a book club meeting.
