I wanted to take a moment on a somewhat quiet day today to see if anyone is interested in being a part of a project we're considering putting together, the Brew Crew Ball Book Club.
I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of book clubs, but here's the basic premise in case you're not:
The group comes together and selects a book to read as a community. I've got some suggestions below, but feel free to add your own in the comments.
Periodically (once weekly?), those of us who have chosen to participate come together to discuss the parts of the book we've read so far.
I think that's more or less it. Amazin Avenue seems to have a working model down for the project. If you have suggestions for how ours might work, drop them in the comments.
EDIT: Since I've been asked a couple of times now, I guess I should point out that discussions would happen here on the site, not in any specific physical location. So you don't need to be in Milwaukee to participate.
Personally, I could use the encouragement to spend a little more time reading and a little less screwing around with other things this winter. Maybe you could too.
So, given the list of these possible books to choose from, how many of you would be interested in taking part?
