Okay, cool! So I'm thinking something monthly or even bi-monthly/quarterly given people's busy schedules. I'll propose a book and a general deadline and then we can get the discussions going.
Any preferences on frequency?
Also another quick-and-dirty discussion we could do (which we actually do in my book club), though it's not a book per se, is to discuss a TED talk. Those talks are based on books so that would be an easy way to get a good discussion going. Maybe we can do those when we aren't reading a book.
I'm in, but it also depends from the books.
In anycase I would love to read your discussion even if I don't/can't have that book.
what is the TED talk?
Here's the TED Talk website!
TED is a series of conferences that happen periodically all over the world. They invite different influential and exciting minds for the talks - sometimes there's a theme or it's centered around a community - and then they take a lot of theses talks and conferences and post them on their website. They're awesome.
I am SO into this idea! I actually lead book groups professionally and have seen how much joy they can bring to people.
Mrs. P., are you thinking books related to skating as well as ANY book our members propose? I would be glad to help choose books as I have a lot of experience with what books work well for group discussion.
As far as skating books go, I know there is a new biography of John Curry (just published) that looks really interesting.
I guess that's up for Mrs. P to decide, but my assumption us that she, or someone else assigned to do it, would select a TEDTalk video and a date to watch it by and it would be discussed on that date like we would a book.
