Hello, hello, and welcome!

You may know me as 'That Crazy Guinea Pig Lady Who Messaged Me About Who Knows What at 3:00 AM'. If I haven't messaged you at an unreasonable hour yet and you feel like you're missing out, I'm sure we can fix that. But I digress!

I know we're all comic fans here, and that's wonderful. This is Comic Vine after all. But I personally am very much into other forms of literature, and I'd like to share and discuss books with y'all!

I think the general format would be someone in the club would choose a book (there would be some form of rotating schedule, or if that doesn't work out I'll just pick one), there would be a designated time to read it, and then we'd have a discussion in a PM. This could be posted or not, Round Table style. :)

If you're interested, please sign up below! I have our first book (and it's a good one!) all ready to go!

Edit: Our first book is Ubik, by Philip K. Dick!

I might be interested, what is this book you speak of?

@thedckid: Can it be a surprise until a few more people show interest? It's one of my personal faves, I'll just say that much for now. ;)

@icarusflies: I am willing to wait, I'm always looking for something new to read.

@icarusflies: Cool. Well whatever book it is, I can probably grab it from Waterstones.

Depends on the book, I suppose.

@icarusflies: Aye, and there's one close to home and one in Aberystwyth, so I can get books at home or at university.

@blackreaper: But the whole point of a book club is to read things you might not normally. I mean, within reason of course, but still.

I read plenty of books... more than comic books. I'm a connoisseur of books. :)

And I got no message at 3.00 am, I feel left out :(

I'm kind of a lone wolf reader. :)

But I would like to recommend Dickens' "Bleak House" to your book club. He has other good novels as well.

@innersuperman: I'm starting a book club. You're all invited. That's the basic gist of things.
