I'd love to get there. We just started this two days ago. And, as you can see, I couldn't even decide on a topic for today, although I've been asking for two days.
The way I'm figuring this (and I could be totally wrong) is first we should see who pops in and wants to take part and see what they want to talk about. Example, I originally wanted to talk about the large number of conservative books out there, if only to find the good ones. This would also be on topic for FR. HOWEVER, I was quickly informed that this was a little too narrow a focus.
Give it a few weeks, and we could even start talking about specific books, but let's get our legs first. People will need time to find specific books and read them.
Actually, once again I'll put it to a vote:
I'll post the results sometime mid-week. (It's back to school Monday, so I can't guarantee which day.) We can make that the next three, four or even five weeks topics if we get enough people participating.
Thank you, in advance, to everyone.
2. Historical narrative - fiction or non-fiction
3. Travel writing
Please add me to your ping list. I'm mostly into historical novels. I also have a pretty good collection of Native American reference, including tribal designs.
The last book I read was Patricia Cornwell's research on Jack the Ripper (Case Closed). It was gory, but gave an insight into the pits of hell the human mind can travel. Ripper was not a nice guy.
Here's my vote:
1. Humor (Fiction or Non-Fiction)
2. Religious Fiction
3. Political and Current Affairs
2. Science Fiction/Paranormal.
3. political - fiction and non-fiction.
I am okay with biographies on this thread --- which is this week's thread.
Next week, I would like the "Quest" genre. That means people could discuss LOR, and any other quest boos.
My third choice of genre is 'relationship'novels; that would include anything from Jane Austin to White Oleander.
Favorites, in order:
1. Science Fiction (Military, Hard Sci.)
2. Military Fiction (Current or Historical)
3. Political (Conservative or Libertarian)
Howsomeever; many of my favorite books don't fit any of these catagories. Delaney's Amber books, Foster's Flinx books, W.E.B. Griffin's Cop books, and of course I just finished the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Check out Foster's "Cyber Way"!
Please add me to your ping list. I love books.
1. Mystery fiction
2. Political/Current Events
3. Horror fiction
