Imagine: a book club with no required reading.

It’s coming soon to this site. On the first day of each month, beginning June 1, One-Minute Book Reviews will provide an space where you can recommend any book you like or vent about one you didn’t like. The book doesn’t have to be new or to have been reviewed on this site. You may leave comments about “your” book on the first day of the month or any other in the month.

I’ll get the discussion started by adding a few comments on a book that I’ve reviewed recently on this site that made an especially strong impression for good or ill. Then you can jump in with comments on that book or any other: new or old, children’s or adult, mass-market or scholarly.

Hope to see you there, and thanks for visiting One-Minute Book Reviews. To learn more about the club, please click here

  3. I have a list of books I haven’t finished. Perhaps I could mention them (no more than one at a time) in your book group and get some feedback on whether or not to shelve them or really finish them? So, can we bring “stalled” book selections to the group?

  4. Of course. How could I object when I have a series on this site called “Books I Didn’t Finish.” The reasons why people haven’t finished books can be as interesting as why they have …

  5. oh geez, that’s right, and I’ve read some of your entries on “books couldn’t finish!”

    Noted your book club’s advent on several blogs and very much looking forward to it!

  6. A thousand thanks for the link. I appreciate your noticing that I try always to respond to comments (usually within 24 hours, though that may have some flexibility on summer weekends in this beach state).

    It’s going to be interesting to try to comment on the books people mention in the book club, because the visitors may be way ahead of me on a lot of books and have many ideas on books I haven’t red. I’m really looking forward to seeing what people come up with. There are so many wonderful books I don’t have time to read.
