Dear reader, life is too short for crap books.

Anybody Want to Start a Book Club?

For the past few months, I've been really wanting to start a book club. However, I didn't want it to turn into this, and I didn't want to have to plan meeting times and stuff.

Then yesterday, my friend, Shannon, pointed out that I could just have a book club on my blog. I thought this was pure genius. I haven't thought out the logistics too thoroughly, but I figured we could take turns picking books and discuss about one a month.

So, if you're interested either comment here or email me at memccoy at gmail dot com, and I will set up a new blog for it. Anyone is welcome - it doesn't matter to me if I know you personally or not. If you want first dibs on pickin', just call it.

Also, if you have any suggestions for a name, let me know. As evidenced by my entirely un-Googlable blog title, I am not much good at coming up with them.

I'm interested, I think--a little worried about the time factor, but I think once the semester gets going, I'd have time. I hate picking, though, so I don't want to do that.

I'm in too...but might have to sit out the first one with the move, looking for a house and starting a new job. I have some ideas for books, but I'm scared to say since all of Mary's friends read really advanced books. So, I'll let someone else pick first and then I'll throw in some suggestions.

KHD...I read fashion magazines. You must never be afraid to suggest *anything* to me. Seriously.

And yay for you moving to the west! We must meet. We will discuss how fantastic Mary and Brady are, and why weird crap is always happening to us.

Okay Gwen...I suggest I Lucifer by Glen Duncan if there is anyone besides me who has not read it.
