Don't Roll Your Eyes..

..But all this Thomas Hardy talk has had me fantasising about another book group.

Ah, those were the days.

An online book group?

Ben McLaughlin said...

oh yeah. You should have been here, it was awesome.

Ooh, I so do an online book club.
Because I'm too wussy to actually go out and meet people.

That's exactly it, Amy. I wrote about that very thing back here when I first had the idea..

Anyway, to give you a rundown, we did Crime and Punishment over about 12 weeks, and over that time the clientele dropped off a LOT (bloggers are notorious pikers), but I still enjoyed it. Each Monday I wrote a post on the chunk we had to read, and other people (me) would have a discussion (with myself).

I later did a second one on a Christian book called Life Together.
