Hey guys,

 

I try to read as much as I can in my free time as I believe that it's essential for growth as an individual because stories offer perspectives that we might not otherwise have. My idea is that (initially) we as a community (those interested) read a book together, and discuss it. Obviously, not everyone has the same amount of time, nor the same priorities, so discussion would have to be tagged with spoilers as to not dissuade latecomers from participating.

 

The books ought to be generally accessible in the sense that they won't require extensive efforts to find, as we want to encourage as many people as possible to participate.

 

Let's kick this off in April, so in the meantime, nominate a book, and we'll vote on a selection as a community in the coming weeks. So feel free to suggest a book.

 

Example: Title, author, and why it ought to be read.

Good idea.

 

I recently found these short literature stories. It's easy to read and comment on

Good idea Pete. I don't have a ton of free time but would participate if I could finish the book or story quickly.

Could also just get people to sign up of a months worth of audible (first month is free) so that they can listen to these books in their free time.

 

I'd like to suggest the second Sherlock Holmes story, "The Sign of the Four" which is about Watson meeting his wife, takes you back in time to some old English language and its generally quite the enjoyable read.

I'm on Kindle Prime or whatever it's called right now so would be happy to join in, providing the book is on there for free. Unless I can nab Audible as Gin suggested or bully you guys to read something I already own. :suspect:

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

I can get in on this.

I'll suggest "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. It's a pretty goofy story I'm sure plenty of you will enjoy.

Description:

"Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor."

We got any more nominations yet?

 

Imagine if Rot had a jr clan? Could probably beat all the other clans still.

Adventures of huckleberry finn by mark twain.

A classic riddled with still relavant topics.
