The, um, not entirely unexpected lack of enthusiasm/discussion for round #1 is leading me to wonder whether we ought to just scrap the whole idea (you lazy fucks).

If not, when do we start bandying about books for round 2?

Jon (kuboaa) | 13 comments I am all for round 2, but i think the group has become considerably smaller

chase Adams | 44 comments see, i'm wondering why there wasn't more discussion generated by this first one.
but i am by no means ready to scrap it. i say on to the next one, and forget all this waiting around until everyone has finished reading and unclear times/rate of discussion.
no retreat no surrender.

ben you're choosing for round 2, yes?

Someone give me the go-ahead and I'll post the list.

Or should we wait to see if there's more Book of Fish discussion?

Jon (kuboaa) | 13 comments I don't think there is going to be much more Book of Fish discussion, at least not enough to say hold off on voting for the next book at least

chase Adams | 44 comments yeah i say go ahead and set it up.
also, for the next one i bet it'll go better if, when finished reading, we work on presenting issues/questions as opposed to say, comparing reviews. i know my first instinct is just to sort of write a review and sit back....

Fair enough.

I'll work on a list and have it up soon for voting.

toph | 24 comments Yeah, to be honest, I'm just not that good at the discussion thing, at least without some sort of prompt or something. Some questions and points of discussion would help a whole lot. Without any sort of place to get started, I'm having a hard time going much beyond the "I liked it" or "I didn't like it" thing.

Anyway, this one did take me a little longer to finish than I thought, but that won't always be a problem. Bring on the next list.

I'll try to post some discussion questions for whichever we end up reading.
