Other Worlds Book Club

Yes, finally I have a volunteer position. Sort of. I along with Peaches Banana and clavoie3 are running a book club series on Second Life. I should have blogged about this weeks go, but alas RL has occupied most of my time.

Anyways, our little group met to decide what books we would discuss. Here is a photo of our rather unorthodox meeting.

clavoie3 and I competed for a spot at the table. I won.

Eventually, we got around to discussing book topics. Harry Potter was quickly mentioned and we had the brilliant idea to discuss each of the seven books, one a week. Unfortunately, time does not permit this, as our course ends. So, we decided to discuss  bunch of books that are set in “other worlds.”  Obviously, we chose the theme of “other worlds” because our class is taking place in another world. We finally narrowed the numerous options down to four series, which are all popular book series’ and personal favourites. Here is the final list:

Book Club dates
Tues. Oct. 25 16:00-17:00 SLT Harry Potter
Tues. Nov. 1 16:00-17:00 SLT Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
Tues. Nov. 8 16:00-17:00 SLT Lord of the Rings
Tues. Nov. 15 16:00-17:00 SLT Narnia
We will be discussing these series’ at Way with Words http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Info%20Island/19/230/23
Every Tuesday beginning Oct 25 until Nov 15, we will discuss these books. Hopefully, some people show up. We had a bit of trouble figuring out how to advertise, what with waiting for responses from the people in charge of volunteering activities and computer glitches on our part, so it will be interesting to see how many people show up tomorrow.  The books we chose are very popular, so we hoped that the titles would spark peoples interest to come out and discuss these unique worlds.
Tomorrow is the first book club! I am nervous and excited! Hopefully it all goes well.
