Online Reading Group


This month, I am starting an online reading group with several friends from college who are scattered all over the place.  Our first pick is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  I was worried because I have had the book for over a year, but my copy is packed away with the rest of my stuff.  I didn't want to buy it again, but then I found it on my mom's book shelves!  I'm going to have to see what other gems are there before I leave!

Has anyone read it?  I think it was someone's favorite line from a few posts ago!  Has anyone ever participated in an online book group?  We are using a Ning social network, and so far it seems to be working pretty well.  I will keep you all updated on our progress!  We're hoping to discuss the book by the end of June.  

I'm excited to jump in and read it!

This sounds like fun. I have never been in any kind of reading group, but I just watched the movie, Jane Austen's Book Club a few nights ago and thought how fun it would be to join a book club.

I loved Jane Austen's Book Club! Have you read the book as well? It's very good. Also, The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble. I enjoyed that one as well.

I know what you mean. I really want to have a flesh and bones book group as well. I had one with my sorority's alumnae association back in Atlanta and it was really fun! The internet variety is going to be good too I hope! Maybe we could have one on here as well. Anyone interested?
