I don't really like that paranormal stuff. Sorry.

Well, I started it , but it looks like I am the only one.  Maybe we should start over with another vote.

I also think we should consider moving the club up to one of the genre forums, like Contemporary Fiction.  It isn't a busy forum, and we might get some more people to join us.  It worked for Sandy when she took the cozy discussion to the mystery forum.  That discussion now has (I think) nine people participating.

I don't really have the time or energy to do a discussion in each genre forum. The point of putting it here was to centralize all the discussions from every genre because we didn't want to get stuck only discussing one type of book. It just feels like everyone has lost interest in the discussion period.

I started it but it's not exactly appealing to me that much, maybe because I don't really like the main character so far. I would vote again if we found another one.

I hear your frustration, Chris, and I sympathize.

I haven't lost interest in the discussion, just wasn't interested in the book.

I checked to see what you were reading. It sounds great, but that book is just not available to me - No e-reader.

You can get the kindle app on your computer for free but the book isn't free anymore.

Just wondering what is happening with this book, anything? Personally I don't think I am going to continue with Firefly

but would be interested more in hardcopy books since I have so many. Anybody else with me on that?

The last few lists got very little attention. I feel like if we aren't doing new releases it wont be successful because no one will want to read the book and no one wants to buy new releases to do the discussions.

Our tastes are too diverse, no matter which book is picked only a couple people want to read it. The only ones that get any kind of wider appeal are current books.
