Page Nibblers is born

My dear friend Rozel and I have decided to create a virtual book club. When first considering why we (who are both OH SO BUSY) are motivated to do this Roz said: "I just want to read a book and talk to someone about it. I want others to pick books that I would have NEVER given a second thought to. Since I am no longer in school, my brain feels like it is dying. I don't have enough self discipline to read a book on my own so if I am responsible to others I will be more motivated (even though it is a guilt free book club)."

We are still tossing around ideas about how much structure and how much anarchy we want in this collaboration. It's just beginning to congeal into a plan. We've started a blog to guide and record our meanderings. Check us out HERE.

I'm excited to have a place for some old friends and new friends to come together to talk about what we are reading.

A virtual book club is a neat idea.

You could also use free Skype conference calls as well to make it even more like the face-to-face experience.

Keep the online format as well though, it's nice to be able to turn to these things whenever you're in the mood!

I'm pleased to see the positive comments about our efforts.

Mimi - ABSOLUTELY, I'd LOVE to have you along. I just sent you an invite that will make it so you can post along with the rest of us. (Actually I was secretly hoping you would be interested!)
