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!

@Titian06 OMG I once got so scared reading a NAncy Drew but that I couldn't finish it and totally faked the ending in my book report!!! Only time I ever did that- I felt so guilty that I think I should have just finished the book instead! The guilt lasted longer than the fear would have. LOL

Re: BIC book club!

@mermadelove - LOL!

Re: BIC book club!

I remember being so scared of the Hardy Boys "While The Clock Ticked" that I made my mom put it in the freezer for me. @mermadelove 

Re: BIC book club!

OMG @Beadshopgirl ! The one that freaked me out was "The Secret of the Old Clock"!! What is it with the clocks?!??! LOLOL

Re: BIC book club!

@mermadelove At least it is a good addiction 🙂

Re: BIC book club!

The BEST! @fatimamummy

Re: BIC book club!

Yeah, I’m nearly done Little Fires. I haven’t started anything else. @mermadelove

Re: BIC book club!

@Beadshopgirl  Phew!!! Thanks, lovely! I started having palpitations! LOLOL ( not really because I am a fast reader, but I don't have "orient' yet). *runs to borrow from library*

Re: BIC book club!

I finished Little Fires Everywhere last night.   Darn.   Now what?   Smiley Happy

Re: BIC book club!

@tsavorite-  You could always start the next book on the list?  Then if you got busy with life or work, you'd have some ahead reading stored up.

Re: BIC book club!

Now we will wait for others to finish. Meanwhile I’m reading another book (Come sundown) which isn’t in this list but I had a hold on it and my turn just came up.

Re: BIC book club!

Just heads up to all who want to use the library books. You may want to put a hold on these two books now if you want to get them on time. This is my hold position on these books. Given each book is issued for 3 weeks , it will take a long long time to get them.

Re: BIC book club!

@fatimamummy-  Amazingly, in my one horse town, both are available now. The Hate U Give is available also in eBook form, which I'm excited to try out, I've never had the opportunity before.

Re: BIC book club!

Wow that’s amazing @prettyinpa I guess Toronto public library has excessive population load on it. Although they have 100 branches and a good inventory but still for popular books, it takes quite a while to get them.

Re: BIC book club!

Ok ladies, I finished the book last night. It was truly a great read. Very well written and the author had a strong grip on story throughout.

Just tag me when you all are done and ready to discuss 🙂

RE: BIC book club!

I am wanting to join but am kind of late to the club can I still join? I can’t figure out what everyone is reading or where to start what therules are etc . I am happy to join just don’t really know where to start I have a kindle and can read a book in under six hours if need be so I could possibly perhaps catch up to everyone if I binge read some of the titles I may be behind on Is there a link to a book list someone could please send me ? If I can join? I have a an reader (kindle paperwhite)and overdrive acct linked to the library as well as a physical bookstore (Barnes & Noble bookstore near me as well as a physical library within walking distance to me so I can read each title as we go please let mejoin ? Eagerly waiting to join here any help would be appreciated thanks

Re: RE: BIC book club!

@WhereYouStand  I finished the book and totally have a hangover now. I'm gonna miss them all!!!!!

Re: RE: BIC book club!

@WhereYouStand-   You can certainly join!  We are now reading Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I'm going to update the OP with the full booklist now.

Re: RE: BIC book club!

Hi, @WhereYouStand!  Welcome!  The list of books is on page 14 of this thread.  We are reading the first '#1, Little Fires Everywhere, first followed by the second '#1, Murder on the Orient Express.  @prettyinpa suggested 3 weeks for Little Fires.  I will take a leap and say this is week 1, so you have this week plus 2 more.  If @prettyinpa or anyone else disagrees with the unofficial start date that I give, feel free to correct.

Re: RE: BIC book club!

That's right, @Titian06- I hope to start discussion around the 4th of February if that's ok by everyone?

Re: RE: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa Works for me! Smiley Happy
