What about "book reviews" as well as "movie reviews" in fun and games. I know there are other sites that do this but i like using mumsnet!

there is a \link{\book club} rather than a book review section.

I have seen this. Just thought it would be more organised if you had threads on a single book with the book title as the subject.

you can if you like!

it was originally for book club-like discussions of a single book, but fizzled out when the organiser had a baby.

just finished Ben Elton - Past Mortem, really enjoyed it Grin

SP, I would start a discussion there to see if people want to use it differently but would feel a bit dictatorial! It's just that the movie review section seems to naturally promote thread subjects based on the film title, but the book club is a mis-mash of thread subjects.

JoolsToo - I've read that as well and enjoyed it - but what do you think of my suggestion?!

which book do you want to review and I'll start a thread for you! I don't mind bossing people about.

Let's try "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy which I love but dh can't get past the first few pages.

would love to join you but haven't read it. could you post a thread saying sometihng like "we intend to talk about god of small things in x weeks..." so that i don't miss out on giving my opinion? Or is that very selfish of me?! Blush

SenoraPostrophe · 09/04/2006 17:32

kipper - that's what we used to do. but I've posted the thread now Blush

I'd offer to organise regular book club threads, but haven't got time. maybe I'll have some after easter.
