    Kenzi and I are really interested in starting a TFF book club, and I wanted to see how much other interest there is. Depending on the number of people interested, we'd volunteer to host the meetings at our place, and my thought would be for a weekday evening, like a Thursday. We'd also like to do regular meetings, maybe once a month or so. We'd be starting with the older SW novels, although exactly which one would be up to the members involved. Anyway, if you'd be seriously interested and able to do something like this, please post in this thread.


    P.S. If we do host any the Book Club meetings at members' homes, any of the underage members who want to participate would need to definitely drag along the parents/guardian-type people, of course. ;)

    Thats right Roger, 1st rule of Book club.......is you do not talk about book club. The 2nd rule of book club.........you do not talk about book club. The 3rd rule is, if this is your 1st night at Book club......you have to read. ;)

    I would like to join too, but Tuesdays & Thursdays are usually days I work. Maybe a weekend thing would be good.

    Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday won't work for me, either. I have school those nights. Friday night would probably work though, as long as it doesn't go too late.

    Well I think we can all say Mon-Thurs are bad times, so that leaves Fri, Sat, Sun. I would like to vote for Fridays myself. Maybe like the 2nd Friday of every month. Why don't we add this to the agenda for the meeting next Saturday and discuss it there?

    Jake let me know what you think and I will express you opinion at the meeting.

    Kenzi-Cool icon. It is sooooooooooo you!! Those darn bad boys! :D

    EDIT Well Kenzi, looking at your signature, you must be the envy of lots of folks on the Tori Amos Fan Thread. Did you faint when you found out she was coming here? :)

    If you guys are really serious of hosting the Book Club I suggest that when we plan a meeting that each of us bring some snacks/drinks.

    All for the snacks! I can make tabbouleh (not the Americanized crap either! I have a real Lebanese recp. that is out of this world), pot stickers, queso or any number of soups and salads. Oh yah, there is always chips and dip. :)

    Humm, picking a book....

    If we want to start with the first book in time line, excluding SOTME(its been 20 yrs since I read that one) we would start with Shadows of the Empire.

    or

    If we wanted to start in order of release we could start with Heir to the Empire. I would be happy with either.

    On snack items, I can bring plates, napkins,cups and Ice.

    Well, with either Shadows or Heir, Kenzi would be happy. She loves those aliens with weird skin colors. ;)

    I would prefer to read the books in chronological order. I've read Shadows and the first NJO book, but I've been wanting to read all of the EU books. I would also be happy to bring snacks and stuff. My parents already said I could join, just tell me when, where, and what book so, if I need to, I can go purchase it.
