Reading With Sea

A book club on your own time

The Book Raffle poll is now clsoed for voting. And the April reading selection winners are:

1. The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolano

2. Tokyo Vice by Jake Adelstein

3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Thank you to all of you who voted.

Again, I just want to reframe the monthly selections “schedule.”  You do not have to read all three books for any given month.  You may chose, which of the books you would like to read and if you have the time and desire, you may read two of the three or three of the three.  It is all dependent on your schedule and interests.  If none of the three books sounds interesting to you, I have this to say: Let me know what you want to read and I will gladly and I mean, GLADLY add it to the book raffle page.

I am currently researching new books to list on the Book Raffle page, so if anyone has a book they are interested in reading in future months, now would be a good time to send those options to me and I’ll get them posted.  The books that received a minimum of one vote last month will remain on the Book Raffle page for one more month.

If anyone has the desire to lead a discussion on any of the books for April, please let me know.

As for my personal reading…. This week I am going to finish: The Catcher in the Rye, The Here and Now, and American Rust.  This week will hold both a ton of reading and of writing, though I may be over-comitting myself, this is my aim.

Here is the scoop on the March Giveaway: Nicole is in first place, with both Danielle and Frank close behind.  At this point, it is still anyone’s to win.  I am getting excited as we come into the half way point of the month because this Moleskine Journal is amazing!

I need your opinions and feedback!  All of you. During the month of February, we as a group, read one book.  Then in March, we selected three books.  I would really like to hear from each of you to determine how you are liking the set up of the group.  Is it working for you?  Do some things need to be changed or altered?  What is difficult?  Are there things that are confusing.  Etc., Etc.  Please send me your feedback either by replying to this post with your comments, or you may email me directly.

I very much would like to hear from all of you as this group is really not about me making all the decisions and setting up the structure, but for all of us, as the members, to have a say in how things go and what we read.  Also, if you have been following the site or lurking around here and there checking things out, please tell me what would make this group more appealing?  How can we win your “membership?”  What could make this group better?
