Why thank you mr. yorke :)
you as well :)
Aaah! Oh my god! I'm so excited about these.
I've read a few, and some of them I've been planning on reading.
I'm glad about seeing JD Salinger, Kurt Vonnegut, and George Orwell on that list. I do have a few suggestions, I believe. I'll request them in that link.
Yeah, those are good books and I am excited about reading them too. :) I am very happy you have suggestions. We want to compile as many good books/good authors onto our list as possible. A good book, a great read, and to be well read is our goal! :)
I do have something to say, though. I already read The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and it took me about 7 months. I just finished it about two weeks ago... And now I see it on your list. Do you think I could skip over that that month? I don't mind rereading all of the other ones I've read, though!
But, also, The Fountainhead might be a little difficult for people to finish in a month. It is about 700-some pages long. A fast reader could probably tackle it. But, a normal one. Not so much.
How should we come across books that are like that? Lengthier and harder to finish within a one month period? Extending it might be hard. Because then some people will be done and it might just screw up the schedule!
Well, I won't pound you with too many conundrums seeing as you've just started the club and you've got just the basics to get down as it is.
Have a good day, though. And good luck with your club. If you need help with anything, I can be of assistance.
people can read any of the books in the booklist
the book of the month is the featured book
for that month we'd like people to read
and/or discuss it or produce art based on it
any books that are long or anyone who can't read
the book in the month will be ok too as long
as people read some of the books and/or discuss
the books in the list or books that they know
we appreaciate all your help and enthusiasm and curiosity emmy :glomp::hug: feel free to suggest anything and to note us or chat anytime with us or other members :hug:
