Interestingly enough I've read a number of these books you've chosen for 'book of the month' over the past year but not in the order that you present them. This is a bit vexing to me because I do not feel timely. It may take me a week or two to secure the book and another week or two to read. I'm still working on Crime and Punishment, a relatively long book which I anticipate to be complete in about 2 more weeks. I'm wondering perhaps if you chose a book a full month ahead of the month intended for that book I might stand a chance of being timely. I became untimely shortly after reading Perks of Being a Wallflower having finished it about a week after the month ended and you've moved on. It's about being disconnected.
And I have other suggestions to help cheer the club up a bit. One of those being to remove the concept of 'book report' and replace it with something more informal like 'what did you think?' or 'spill your guts here'. Then creating these folders for each book where those guts are spilled in a timeless fashion. Also, I think making this a 'Group' will give it more exposure since people will actually be able to find it and get periodic updates on activity in 'the library' of public opinion. One does not have to be a member to have an opinion.
Wii! i love this book
very glad that you're excited emmy
