You are right. A potential 'Bill compartment'has to be set up smartly. Perhaps a focus on the particular piece of work to read is best. Then both newbies and more advanced readers can contribute according to their ability and we can learn from each other. But the guidance in form of questions and topics is necessary.
How many times do we need to point that out? I guess if we keep repeating it ad nauseam maybe it will finally be heard by the B&N kings.
There can be free threads and there can be stuctured ones, it's just impossible to have the "Jewish school" going on at all times.
stil on it :-)

LOL Ziki - you certainly are on the case! But what does 'Jewish school' mean? Do you mean 'rabbinical'?

Cats are not very discriminating when it comes to books. They like to lay on top of whatevery you are trying to read, or they rub their faces on the corners of the book making it difficult for you to focus on the words. But they seem to show know preference for whether it is a classic or trash.
My cats are fairly tolerant of books but they think that all newspapers are for jumping upon to make as much noise as possible! My big tabby cat makes an excellent bookrest when I read in bed and as Moby Dick is quite large paperback, I am finding her useful at the moment

Not only that, if you start too many discussions at once, you'll lose participants because everyone (like me) can't read all of the books at once. I don't even know if I haven't read Twelfth Night and I don't know if I own it amongst my Shakespeare works. I do a lot of my reading while relaxing at home or riding the bus and online reading is not an option.
I think we should treat these book clubs rather like fine food or wine - a little goes a long way Too much and you are likely to get indigestion

I have only one at this time (I miss the sharing photos feature of the old BNU - I remember the lovely photos you shared and I have some of mine) but books to him are what distract me from feeding him!
Yes, I miss the photo sharing too. I have asked the B&N techie people to try to get it back for us. Shouldn't we be posting all this in the Community Room?
