Book discussions
« on: January 18, 2015, 12:13:07 am »
Usually in book clubs you have everyone read the same book in a given month and then discuss it with each other. Or at least, that's what Hollywood tells me, I've never been in a book club.

I thought we might try that but it might be too much with a whole book. So what do you think of short stories? Every week or two weeks (to be decided), one person of the club picks a cool short story we're all going to read and then we discuss it.

Who's in?

Glad you like.

I'll set the first story as one of my favourite classics, The last question, by Isaac Asimov.

Then someone everyone will have a turn picking the story.

Let's say we discuss the story in two weeks.
