what books are you interested in reading?
To recap: I'm starting this venture because the JLPT is over and I have no desire to memorize grammar points anymore. And, I don't have access to any books written in English. I really enjoyed the book clubs that I've belonged to in the States, though I suppose that a big part of that was the getting together over coffee (or wine and fondue) to discuss.
Hopefully an online book club will at least be enough to motivate us to read books in Japanese.
So, I suppose we should start by choosing a book and deciding on a format.
I liked semitribe
's suggestion of having a set number of pages/chapters to read each week and then discussing them over the weekend.
i suppose we could really post our thoughts/questions whenever we finished reading, as long as it was under a lj-cut. but if we tried to center our discussion over a day or two, it would be more conversation-like.
Do you have any books that are already in your to-be-read queue?
Any books that you're dying to read?
Thoughts on format?
What days are most convenient for you to discuss?
How many pages do you think are reasonable in a week... though that might depend on the book we choose.
