Time to Vote/Give Suggestions for Our Book of the Month!
This is your chance to discuss a book of your choice that you would like to
talk with folks about!
Please enter your book suggestions on the Message Board under, “Book Suggestions October 2013“. Or
just weigh in on the suggestions that have already been made there. I have
begun a list there of books that have been suggested repeatedly in the 5+ years
of this book club, but for one reason or another we have never read.
Procedure for picking a book for the month I simply
pick the most popular of your titles suggested. If one title doesn’t come up
that much more frequently than any others, then I put more weight on book
titles proposed by members that have attended repeatedly. Whether a member has
paid dues can be a tiebreaker at times. Thanks, everyone, who has taken care of
that, by the way!
Guideline for book suggesting It just has to be fiction this month. We
alternate between fiction and nonfiction in the Midtown Book Club. We also try
to just mix it up a little bit, in general, by not picking a book that has too
many similarities with the one we just finished; i.e. setting, genre, the mood
(dark and serious etc.), or even the length.
You have a week to vote – Thursday, September 26 is the
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
