Book Club (January 2006): The Man in My Basement by Walter Mosley
Starting Sunday, Jan. 2, anyone who is interested is invited to read and discuss The Man in My Basement by Walter Mosley.
Proposed reading schedule:
Week One (Jan. 2-8): Pages 1-88, 88 pages (Chapters 1-10)
Week Two (Jan. 9-15): Pages 89-175, 86 pages (Chapters 11-20)
Week Three (Jan. 16-22): Pages 176-249, 73 pages (Chapters 21-28)
Week Four can be treated as catch-up, further discussion and selection of the February 2006 book.
(ETA: With longer works, I can foresee using the fourth week as part of the reading schedule, but TMiMB is relatively shorter, and, in my humble opinion, a good jumping-off point for a new book discussion group.)
The above is simply an outline, a proposal. If anyone has any ideas, or if the above seems too fast-paced or slow-paced, please suggest another schedule.
I have read up to page 50 and look forward to our discussions! I think (and hope) you will enjoy it as much as I have.
