BIC book club!

Some of us here have expressed an interest in a book club, myself, @mermadelove, @LCResz, @ZombieMetroAnt, @Mcakes. If you'd be interested in joining, reply below. My initial thought was to mail the books around but if it means that some people can't participate, then I'm all for dropping that requirement. I'd love this to be a place where we nominate our favorite book and others can read it and comment. Something fun for the new year!  ETA: the booklist:

Re: BIC book club!

I'm more of a LibraryThing than GoodReads user. I understand it's not as popular & free as GoodReads, but I'm rather settled at LT and don't know if I can transfer my library over to GR.

Re: BIC book club!

I heart LibraryThing! I've had an account there since 2005. ❤ 📚

Re: BIC book club!

It looks like Goodreads has access to your email address book to let you know who's on. I'm not comfortable with sharing my address book, I feel that's intrusive, so I vote no.

Re: BIC book club!

What about just a google form? They’re easy to make, and we could inbox everyone the links (so we woundn’t need anyone’s email) for a suggestion form that is free text and then later a voting form with the suggestions from the first form. 


They don’t require you to have or log into a google account (unless you click a certain button when creating the form, but it’s not default), and as far as I know no personal information would be shared with the creator of the form (unless you ask for it on the form).

Re: BIC book club!

@skcfan  Great idea!!!

Re: BIC book club!

@skcfan This sounds like a great idea. I am not comfortable sharing my personal info either so I think we try to do it without good reads for BIC .

Re: BIC book club!

If you can share links in PMs this is a great way to do it!

Re: BIC book club!

@fieldsofclover- You can definitely share links in PM's, I've sent friends links to indie brands and sale stuff. I'm strongly leaning towards a Google form, I've asked skcfan if she would help me set one up as I've never done this before.

Re: BIC book club!

I like it. Ideal solution!

Re: BIC book club!

This sounds like a great idea, @skcfan!

Re: BIC book club!

I use Goodreads but would prefer to keep my participation off Goodreads, it’s linked to my Facebook account and I’m not super comfortable with using it for a BIC thing.  Sorry everyone! 

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa I agree with you.  If it's ok, I'll just stick with sharing my thoughts on BIC while still maintaining some privacy.  Thanks for doing this. Heart looking forward to it since all I'm reading now is this (the lil' ones are on winter break Smiley Indifferent )


Re: BIC book club!

@fieldsofclover-  Maybe we should slow down on setting up the Goodreads until more than a couple of people has given the go ahead. I'm concerned with what personal info we have to share with Goodreads in order to use it, as I'm sure other people are too. I have no problem with people PM'ing me their lists and I can then see where the overlaps are (interest by more than one person) and putting together a big list and people can vote on that or using a random selection to choose, but I think more than one person has to agree to Goodreads before we use it. Thanks for your patience.

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa @fieldsofclover  I'm totally fine with either goodreads ( as I already have an account) or whatever the consensus is. I don't have a preference.

Re: BIC book club!

I'd love to join! thanks for setting this up. Such a great idea 🙂

Re: BIC book club!

I'm setting up a Goodreads group... after I add a few things and make it searchable, I'll post the details here and anyone who already has an account or wants to make one can take a look and make suggestions.

Re: BIC book club!

I'm happy to see a book club being started - yay for reading!! I wish you all well with your club. I'm a semi back burner reader due to work, unless I get my hooks into a really good book, then nothing else matters :D. I spend a lot of nights trying to read a book, and get maybe 4-5 pages in (not including the super awesome page turners), only find myself falling asleep holding my Kindle whoops! I didn't see it mentioned, but if you are into fictional crime The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchinson is a really good book. (it's a trilogy - book #2 is out and book #3 is coming this spring). It's kinda graphic with swear words and some scenes just FYI. Happy reading, and just to put in my 2 cents my favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird. You really can't beat a classic (and I hated Go Tell a Watchman boo) as I have seen several listed below ❤️

Re: BIC book club!


I totally agree with you about "Go Kill A Mockingbird," and "Go Tell A Watchman."

Re: BIC book club!

@fieldsofclover's suggestion sounds good, is this ok by you all? If so, I'll try to set something up and get back to you.  However, if this is going to fill everyone's mailbox with spam, then we shouldn't do it. I have enough trouble wading thru mine with all the sale temptations in there.

Re: BIC book club!

Whatever is fine by me! As long as I’m tagged with the details when they are hammered out! It’s hard to track threads down sometimes...

I second that. Just tag me when the plan is ready.
