Jennifer (jesicu) So I was thinking - What if we scheduled a night, once a month, to discuss the book on Twitter while indulging in some cocktails? It could be a fun way to get some real-time interaction like an in-person book club for those who'd be interested.

I'm thinking - the last Saturday night of each month (so most would have managed to read the book) starting at 9pm EST and lasting however long people stick around. I realize this won't accommodate those on the other side of the globe well and if anyone would like to volunteer to man twitter for a scheduled night for those in a vastly different time zone, please let me know.

Does this sound like something that would work?

TheGeekyBlogger That would work for me :)

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Ditto with never having used twitter, but this sounds like a fun idea.

Amanda I love it too! I've got a twitter account so no problem for me. We should probably think of a hash tag to use so we can see everyone's post even if we aren't following them.

How about #TequilaBC or if that's too long, #RwTBC?

I'm going to go through the introduce yourself post and add everyone's twitter names onto a twitter list, so everyone can follow each other easily if they chose to.

message 9: by Amanda (new)

Amanda That's a smart idea too. I like the first one the best but it doesn't matter to me. As long as we decide on one =]

Angela B Now I'm going to have to log on and figure out how this twitter stuff works huh?

LOL. If you'd like to join us, I suppose so. I use twitter a lot, so I tend to forget that many people don't use it at all.

After each Twitter night, I plan on posting the transcripts of the conversation here in the book club for those who couldn't join us. If anyone wants to participate but just can't face using Twitter, they could respond to the transcripts.

Tara SG (tarasg) | 3 comments I usually work Saturday nights, but could see if I could get out a little early that night.

I am cool with that.

Emily WilowRaven (wilowraven) | 4 comments That sounds like a ton of fun :) If you guys haven't heard of it already - TweetChat is a really cool feature of Twitter. You use your Titter log in / name and it's an easy way to follow a hashtag chat in real time. I like it because even if you're not following everyone who is chatting you will see their tweets. It's easy to reply and the hashtag you are following will automatically appear in your tweet.

Misha (mishamathew) This sounds like fun. But the timing might be a problem. I am not from the US

Jennifer (jesicu) It hasn't happened yet, but we will be starting this month. I'll post all the details in a few days.

Evelyn | 16 comments I like the idea but I'm at GMT+10 so it probably wouldn't work for me.
