PostSubject: About Book Talk   Wed Jan 06, 2010 12:17 pm

Part of the reason I love blogging is the book love. I can get online any time and read till my heart's content about book reviews, opinions, happenings in the book world, etc. Yet I find, in our community, there is not actually much discussion regarding books. Overall, it seems very one sided: You write the review, and readers comment on their thoughts of the review or a small general thought on the novel. Then that is it.. novel done and we move on to the next one. But I often find that I want to actually talk about the book... what I liked.. what I did not care for... favorite character... etc. So in an effort to expand on my love of books, I propose a Book Talk.

A Book Talk will consist of readers who have already read a predetermined YA novel discussing their thoughts. Below you will find the basic overview of a Book Talk.

* Book Talk book selection options will be posted on the First Tuesday of the month. Readers will have 72 hours to vote on their selection choice.
* The winning selection's cover will be posted on my sidebar at The Neverending Shelf as well as a post for the month's group to notify readers of the month's read with the date of the discussion.
* Discussions will be held once a month in our Chatbox. This allows us to have a private conversation in a real-time environment.
* If possible, the author may stop by the discussion to answer some questions or give his/her thoughts on the novel.
* Readers can submit discussion questions or suggest book selection options at any time by filling out the form here: http://www.theneverendingshelf.com/2010/01/book-talk.html

Interested in participating? Please help me chose January's selection by filling out the form. I will take reading suggestions for January until midnight Wednesday, the 6th. Voting for the selection will take place on Thursday-Saturday with the result revealed on Sunday.
