We'll be setting meeting dates at our Christmas party on 12/21 so please remember to bring your calendar. And feel free to read ahead if you want to!
I'm hoping my book club will select "Interpreter of Maladies." We're about to select our next five books.
How many books did you choose from? Does everyone in your group submit suggested titles?
BTW - Thanks for adding us to your book club blogroll.
In the past, each gal got to choose a book for the group to read but we're so big that it would take about 2 yrs to get your turn so we've decided to try something new.
At our last meeting each gal could nominate a book (or several) and the group voted on them. [We decided that, in the future, each gal may only nominate ONE book though - it just got too confusing this time!]
One the nominations are made, each gal wrote down her top three pics. Those titles made up our short list.
From that short list we did another vote, this time choosing our top three. The three books with the most votes made became our choices.
The reason for doing two votes is so that each gal gets an input on the final books, even if her original choices didn't make the short list.
