Re: [bookclub-848] April Book Selection

Laura,
 
Along the lines of cutting costs, I think it would be great if we could pick the next three month's books at one time.   That way if we order through amazon.com we will meet the $25 minimum for free shipping. 

I was going to order the current book we are reading but I didn't want to pay shipping and tax so I just paid full price at Borders since it was the only book I needed.
 
My mom's bookclub is a much smaller group but they pick their books a year in advance, I think doing 2 or 3 months at once would be good and that way people can start reading the next one right away and they can take advantage of the free shipping at Amazon by buying the books at one time instead of individually.
 
Just a suggestion.
 
Thanks,
Pam

The problem with Stacey Ballis' other books is that some are out of print (and therefore hard to get) and I think we should make a rule that if the book is not regularly stocked at Borders or Barnes and Noble stores, then we shouldn't select it.  Otherwise, that's too much effort and extra cost required by members to get the book.  I think only one other book by Ballis is in print---Room for Improvement.  I can put it on the poll if people want.
 
As for other Chicago chick lit-type authors, the only other one I know of is Laura Caldwell.  Let me know if people want anything of hers on the poll.
 
Also, we've never officially said that we won't pick hardcover books, but I know some members would prefer not to because of the added cost.  Do we want to make this a hard and fast rule?  Or would we make exceptions for certain books, such as the new Sophie Kinsella book, Remember Me, or the new Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart?
 
Have a good weekend!

Hi there,

It's time to start picking our book for April. If you have a suggestion, please email me by Monday, March 10th at noon. I will post a poll of the suggestions at that time. The poll will run until the afternoon of Friday, March 14th. I will send an email notification when the poll is posted. Feel free to suggest books that have been on previous polls but not won.

Have a great Thursday!
-Laura
