hi everyone! so cool to see that some of you are interested in doing a blog version of a book group with books that involve dogs! so, why don’t we get started?
it looks like many of us are new to this so we’ll see how it goes.
i recommended we start with The Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst and there were no objections, so why don’t we try it? then next month maybe someone else can recommend another book? if you’ve already read this book, will you please join in on the discussion after reviewing it?
1. christina is going to start a forum on her blog for discussion.
2. how about we all try to finish the book by 4/30/…09. (i’m nutso with travel preparations so I can’t start reading it this week. hopefully i can get some reading done on the plane.)
3. AROUND the 30th, maybe we could all post some reviews on our blogs, then open it up for discussion on the forum. if the forum isn’t up, we can just comment throughout the week on someone’s blog entry.
4. no pressure. it’s our first try.
thetexfiles provided this link for info on the book:
. it’s a popular book that has been out for a while, so should be in libraries, bookstores and on-line.
to date we have solid “yes, let’s do this” and a few “i’ll try, but i don’t know”s from the following bloggers:
and me, goodbear.

hi blog readers and blog friends.
i have a stupid idea. is anyone interested in a book group of sorts? you see, so many readers of my blog are clever and well read. you guys leave witty comments and your blogs are so creative. and i just thought i would toss the idea out there.
we pick a book, then a variety of things could happen: perhaps we set a day to finish the book by, and on that day we each post our thoughts on the book. orrrr, each book one person leads off with a discussion opener on their blog and people join in the comments.
part of me thinks, “how about a group that discusses fiction involving dogs?” but i don’t know if there are enough good ones out there that would interest people.
opportunity to showcase your big brain?
