Quote from: billybob476 on November 06, 2007, 12:36:56 PMThe problem with one chapter for week is it could take a year to read a book! Maybe we need an approximate page count, say 100 pages, corrected to the closest end of chapter.
QuoteHmm. The only issue I see with this is the time scale. Unless I'm mis-reading all this, we would be rushing some people and some people would be done quickly. Me, I read fairly quickly. /yawn Wow, I'm way too tired. Anyway, to me this just seems something like the RPG has become. Are we going to do the same thing of it just being an exclusive thing that other people have to sign up for?

QuoteI haven't kept current on either the Star Wars novels, nor Star Trek novels. I am neutral on which one we do first. Also remember we need to give a week or so for people to procure the novel we will be reading. Lets get 4 or 5 suggestions, then we can put up a take a vote.Duffster
QuoteRegardless of which book is chosen, I'll be happy that we have finally started a Treks In Sci-Fi book club!
Quote from: billybob476 on November 06, 2007, 04:28:17 PMWell we can start with ST/SW. A fun book I read awhile back but wouldn't mind re-reading is Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton.http://www.amazon.com/Pandoras-Star-Peter-F-Hamilton/dp/0345461622

Quote from: Duffster on November 06, 2007, 03:43:15 PMOne thing I am worried about though is the depth of the conversation. SW/ST books have never really been categorised as "deep" books. I hope we have enough depth in these books to keep us talking about them from week to week. We may find we need to move to some more serious SF to keep things interesting. No don't go thinking I am being snobbish against these books, some of them are fantastic. I just think we many need to be selective on which ones we pick to read.Duffster
