At the last @community meeting we discussed creating a casual book club.
@angus suggested the model in which members could nominate any book to “the list” (which would be a spreadsheet). At regular time intervals (every month? 2 month?), 3 books would be picked at random from the list, and the community would vote on which to read and discuss.
This would fulfill a need of having a space in which to discuss topics of interest to the group - either casual interest or of burning importance.
If a sub-group of members decides they want to have a book club of a particular theme, authors of a particular background etc. Perhaps we can do alternating months of themed vs general, and do a similar flow of submitting themes to a big list then voting on them.
