I am starting a book club...

All those interested I will be accepting suggestions until Tuesday at noon. I am so tired of reading books no one has ever read. I am making a few rules:

1. Nothing graphic. No descriptive sex scenes. No murder scenes explained to minute detail.

2. No offensive language while discussing it.

3. I want opinion, not insults.

Other than that I could care less if we read "Hop on Pop" and discuss it.

    Have you read the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield? I've read Uglies and Pretties, but I'm dying to read Specials, I just haven't ordered it yet (don't have any local bookstores and the library selection here sucks).

    Shall we read all 3 or just the first one?

    I've already read the 1st two books, but I'm up for reading the 3rd... I guess it just depends on how many you think you can read. I'll talk about one or all 3, I don't care.

    Have you started reading yet? I keep meaning to order the 3rd book, Specials, but I haven't yet. I know that when I order it though I'll probably finish it in a couple days.

    I really hope you enjoy the book(s) - I love them!

    Also, if you want to do all 3 books, we could talk about the first book before you read the second, talk about the second before we read the third... only if you want to. Whatever's clever.

    Lets read all of them, and talk about each one. I like that idea.

    Ummm. Change of plans. I put the series on hold at my local library and was first in line and thought they would get here in time. Nope, apparently the person lost them and now I am SOL. Have you by any chance read any of his other books like "Peeps" or "So Yesterday"? THose I was able to get a hold of and if you have read them I would be glad to discuss them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Oh no! That's a bummer! But no need to apologize. I haven't read any of his other books, but I'd like to. I'll have to see if my library has any of them (probably not, it's really crappy :( ). Have you read either of the books yet? If you did were they worth it?

    And if you have any other book suggestions, I'm all for discussing something else. Just let me know.

    I loved Peeps just because it wan't you normal Vampire story. And So Yesterday reminded me of HS but it was kind of fun to see your thoughts on paper. And both had happilish ever after endings

    Ok thanks! I'll let ya know if I can find either of those. Speaking of vampire books, have you read Twilight by Stephanie Meyers? I really liked that it; I've read the sequel too which I didn't like as much.

    Yep, I love YA books (and I CAN'T wait for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants). :D

    Have you read Jacob Have I Loved? I thin that should be the next book. my best friend has been trying to get me to read it. I ahve been telling her to get a flu shot so I guess it all evens out.

    OKay I have read all of the Uglies, Pretties, and Specials. Lets discuss if you still want to. I'll start.

    I think instead of reading the Aenied, which about 2 people in my class understood, this should be required reading. You actually learned something in these books. I would recomend them to anyone in public education over the age of 13 and their parents. I can really see how the world is heading in this direction.
