I was looking at the post from the TTC board. The books suggested were: Haunting of Hill House (Shirley Jackson) and Something Wicked this Way Comes (Bradbury).

If you have any other suggestions, let's hear them!

I'm good with that can we all start in like 2 days so everyone has time to get the book or does it not matter when we start?

I don't think it matters as long as we are all reading the same book and start around the same time.

I'm pretty broke though I thought since maybe it was a classic, I could get it for free but it's one of the only classics that isn't free. I might go see if they have a paper copy at the library this weekend.

I've never been in an online book club before, so how does that work? Do we just discuss it when we are all finished? Or start discussions by chapter so we can all discuss that part when we get to it? Or some other option I haven't even thought of?

OMG I loved that mlovie so I am really looking forward to the book.

Yeah I thought it was going to be cheaper but I always re-read books and the kindle is awesome for a bookshelf.

I dont know how its going to work...

I'm not sure. I was gonna say every 50 pages or 3 chapters, which ever comes first, but what if the book has a ton of chapters? Probably not the best idea.

So every 100 pages we can discuss? What do you ladies think?

I think chapters would be better than pages since some of us will be reading ebooks and others a hard copy.
