Okay, so let's see if we can get this going? They do have Book Club in a Box at the libraries. We can order one of those and see if we can order the rest of the books (however many we may need). Then, each week we can have a discussion question and hopefully some good debates and discussions.

I guess the first job would be to pick a title....

I'll start with:

36 arguments for the existence of God : a work of fiction
Goldstein, Rebecca, 1950-
New York : Pantheon Books, 2010.
402 p. ; 25 cm. Book club in a box

I'm sure this will give us a lot of great discussions!

I'm probably banned from the library by now for overdue books lol

And personally, I'll pass on that book ;)Fun idea though! 

Kristen --- 11 years ago -

I belong to two book clubs already but I hope you guys set up a good book club here online. Discussing that one should be interesting! 

Mojo --- 11 years ago -

I try to steer clear of religion-related topics, but hopefully you'll be able to get this started up. 

Ms Asia --- 11 years ago -

It will be better, if you let us know what the next book will be, that way we can order it earlier. The libraries do ILL and it takes maybe 3 weeks, give or take, to get them. So if we know what book is next, we can order it at the same time and we'll read and finish(?) at the same time :)

I'm in 

MAD4EUROPE --- 11 years ago -

Why, they normally get the best debates going...lol. But I know what you're saying.

That book was just a suggestion. If anyone have any other suggestions please post them and when we agree on a book then we'll look into ordering them from the library.

Oh come one Blue...the best part of living, is walking in other peoples shoes and seeing from their lenses.

I'm an atheist/agnostic and I read a lot of religious books to try and understand what all the "hoopla" (for lack of better word) is really all about. Also, it helps you become well read if you are willing to step out of your comfort zone. Purely, my 2 cents :-) 

TexasMom --- 11 years ago -

agreed same here 

Fairs 3 --- 11 years ago -

I would be interested. I'm new to Ramstein so I do not know how the Book Club in a Box works. I have been looking for a book club but since I do not know anyone it has been kinda difficult. I am surprised that the library does not hold them. Then again I have been use to the public libraries in the State we came from.
Normally I do not read books about religion but I am up for it. Yes it would spark some strong discussions.

I walked in those shoes until I graduated high school :P I've had plenty discussions about God.

So, do we want to start this up???

@ Fairs 3: Book Club in a Box 

Blueser oO --- 11 years ago -

I don't have time to read a book since I read super inhumanly slow, but I'll read the cliff notes and participate in the discussions with y'all :P 

VeggieGirl --- 11 years ago -

I'll join. Blueser, I love reading but I'm a super slow reader, too. I think it has something to do with our perfectionism and not wanting to miss a single detail. LOL. :) 

daisy --- 11 years ago -

I don't have much patience for good story books and usually skip a few pages just to find out the ending,i know..it defeats the object but i am a sucker for happy endings but i don't read anymore only the newspaper and comic magazine:)..oh yes and cooking books:D 

CMS --- 11 years ago -

I'd love to join in! I read stuff on my gadget, so after you guys pick out a book for sure, I'll download it. I'm a big reader... 

Blueser oO --- 11 years ago -

Hahaha, you may be right! o_O

..oh yes and cooking books:D

Me too, I could look at cook books for hours! :D 

Melinda --- 11 years ago -

I'll read just about anything. Just let me know and I'll find the book I need. 

Fairs 3 --- 11 years ago -

I'm in just let me know the title because most I load onto one of my devices. 

Kristen --- 11 years ago -

well, I will ask you to take my next lit class then! 

Kristen --- 11 years ago -

what did you guys decide on, the first book or a book club in a box? 

MAD4EUROPE --- 11 years ago -

OK, so if anyone is interested I had some books reserved and they're sitting in the library waiting to be read!! They are at Kleber library right now but I can call them and have them shipped to Landstuhl if it's more convenient OR you can find the book at Ramstein or Vogelweh...

Here's the book:
The Loveliest Woman in America: A Tragic Actress, Her Lost Diaries, and Her Granddaughter's Search for Home by: Bibi Gatson

Here's a sneak peek!

Let me know who's interested??? I think they have about 9 books on hold. You can just walk in and ask for the book and it should be behind the desk.

**Happy Reading** 

Blueser oO --- 11 years ago -

If I can find the book to read online, I might take part :P They have wanted posters up for me at the Ramstein Library o_O 

MMDH --- 11 years ago -

oooo I'm in! Sounds like a good read! 

Kristen --- 11 years ago -

looks interesting! I am too far to come over for a book but I will see if I can get it over here 

MAD4EUROPE --- 11 years ago -

YEAAA! You can check openlibrary.org as well to see if they have it there. Does anyone want me to call and have them send some books to Landstuhl for pickup??? 

CMS --- 11 years ago -

It's on amazon (Bibi Gaston), too, Blueser. I'm in... I'll get it online, Mad!

Thanks for getting this started! 

Melinda --- 11 years ago -

I'm in too. Have to check at Ramstein/Volgeweh library. 

Blueser oO --- 11 years ago -
