The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by D-deola: 12:16pm On Dec 19, 2012
Hi people,here's what i have in mind for this club;
we pick a book for every month and discuss each chapter of the book we get to pick. We should also choose a convenient time and day for everyone
To the fast readers,pls dont tell us what happened at the end ,until everyone gets there.
I think for a start someone should pls pick a book we can all work with. Thanks for your cooperation.

I think τ̲̅ђe book should also include nigerian authours and it could cut across aspects such as motivational, fiction and non-fiction and educational books. W̶̲̥̅̊hε̲̣̣̣̥я̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ we can analyse, criticise, and appraise τ̲̅ђe book. Starting from τ̲̅ђe style of writing, to τ̲̅ђe theme, tone, and massage. Like  join τ̲̅ђe click

Great idea but dont u think with novels it'd be pretty interesting.besides i was thinking we should discuss the characters rather than the style of writting,tone etc
But of course,nigerian authors are also welcome.

Am still waiting cuddlemi and deola
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by Dospix(m): 6:46pm On Dec 26, 2012
I am suggesting it should be strictly Nigerian books and few foreign books; we could even promote books written by nairalanders, by this we get to encourage others to work hard...anyway am in for this.
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by adim2(m): 7:38pm On Dec 26, 2012
I buy into τ̲̅ђe idea of nigerian novel
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by Larry-Sun(m): 9:02pm On Dec 27, 2012

Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by D-deola: 11:06pm On Dec 27, 2012
All in favor of 3rd of january say ai.
But what book should we start with?
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by adim2(m): 11:46pm On Dec 27, 2012
Its all depends then. Should we start with new or old writers?
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by channel 190(m): 6:26am On Dec 28, 2012
Ai to january third,
The hint book in town is of course half a yellow sun by that lady, chimmanda.
Let be patriotic...again let go for what people can obtain. Nice idea...am fully into it
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by teeo(m): 8:04am On Dec 28, 2012
I wld also like to suggest that any book we wld be reading should have an accessible e-copy.

We might not be able to get paper backs on time so e-books could be easily accessed. grin

I agree with Teeo, the chosen book should have a downloadable e-copy. I don't know about Nigerian novels, but we can freely download some Western novels from manybooks.net.
Bless you all.

So when do we kick off this project...and what book should we begin with.
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by Larry-Sun(m): 9:12am On Dec 29, 2012

This place doesn't look coordinated...its 10 days since the first post was made, and we are still yet to leave the drawing board... sad
Re: The Book Discussion Club ~chat zone~ by D-deola: 6:00pm On Dec 29, 2012
Hi people thanks for the response.
Almost everyone agreed to jan 3rd (i do hope u kno it's a thursday sha)
so what time do you propose.
I'm open to any book,foreign or nigeria.but sincerely i prefer foreign books though.
One of the reasons behind this idea is to broaden our horizens anyway,besides it'd realy impove our reading skills,because u dont want to be left out in the excitement,you know you want to have something to say everytime we come here to discuss.
Therefore let's come up with a convenient time and get this thing started already people *winks*
