So, I thought I'd throw this out there to measure the interest level. I'm thinking about starting up a sort of hella nerdy book and movie club. Every month or so, we'd select a book to collectively read and discuss. After everyone participating has read the book, we get th emovie adaptation, watch and discuss it.

What do you guys think?

As an aside, this is the worst thing ever.

I used to console myself with 'At least they're reading'. That mantra doesn't work anymore. Not when I see Mitchell sitting there under that heap of trash. It breaks my heart.

I am all for this! And no. No way. I refuse to believe that Twilight is anywhere near as good as Anna Karenina or The Glass Castle.

EDIT: Or Of Mice and Men.

EDIT 2: Or The Color Purple.

EDIT 3: Or Frankenstein. My Sister's Keeper. The Bell Jar.

EDIT 4: What the actual fuck.

I'd definitely be interested. I really need to read more. Even if I just use this for incentive.

Are we expected to go into all the hidden meaning shit like english lit classes? Because personally I think most writers don't even think about all that bullshit, they are just putting pen to paper.

Fuck I hated 'Of Mice And Men'. Having to dissect that awful shit for almost a year was agony.

If you cut off all of the Twilight crap (and maybe bump the Harry Potter stuff down), it's not too bad of a list. That is, if the Twilight stuff was gone.

But yeah, this sounds like a great idea. I could even provide a couple suggestions for good books to chew on, if you'd like.

Okay, so it looks like there's enough interest in this to give it a go. Haley, can you make a Book Club subforum for us?
