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