The NSC Book Club

Postby Baconator25 » Mon Jan 11, 2010 1:40 am

Welcome to the NSC Book Club, where we will be reading books and discussing them and stuff. Members will alternate choosing the book. Anyone is welcome to participate, and I do hope a few more people decide to.

The first book of the book club will be Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Now, I know some of you have probably already read this, but I feel it'd be an appropriate book to start with.

Announcements:
-Everyone participating, please get the book by Wednesday, February 10th..

I'll add more to the thread later, I guess..

Well, I know the story, at least. We were supposed to read it last year, but I didn't. :D: I'll read it after I finish reading A Series of Unfortunate Events again (unless I finish before the start date, in which case I'll start on time). I'm on The Penultimate Peril, so after that there will be three more books, and that shouldn't take too much time.

My sincerest apologies for leaving this behind the past couple of weeks. I would ask everyone that signed up (or well said they were interested...) to get the book by next Wednesday. That's 1 week to get the book. That is plenty of time. I hope to see everyone that signed up participating, and it'd be nice if a few people who didn't decided to tag along. New members are always welcome. :)

Not sure if any of you heard, but the author of Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger, died on Saturday, I believe it was.

I have a bad feeling about this...

How many people actually HAVE the book or plan on getting it by Wednesday? I doubt it's more than 2. I think I'm going to have to call this off.

My car's all registered and legal to drive and stuff, so picking it up from the library will be no problem.

I personally prefer walking to both of those options (unless we're talking about rain, rather drive there).

Well, walking to the library is rather out of the question for me, since it's like 6 or 7 miles away.
