book group

I have a strong desire that has only recently developed. I want to be a part of a book club. It sounds too difficult to start one myself, though (see Oprah's preliminary questions here). I also would like to be a part of a writing group.

My reasons for this? Well, first of all, I want to be motivated to do these things that I love but don't do very much because I'm a lazy dud (or something). Also, I think collaboration of ideas is an enlightening and broadening venture, and what better forum than a semi-formal discussion group where no one is getting grades? It's like your favorite English course without the stress, or something. And maybe you could develop connections with your fellow group-members. As I am often cloistered alone in my apartment (the fate of the jobless?), this sounds appealing to me.

Of course, I don't really know anything about book groups, and I don't know if it would actually be as great as I imagine it to be. I just hope that it is whenever it comes along, because it will come along. And when it does, watch out!

There was a calling for a book club leader in my ward at one point, so there was a ward book club, and it was really cool and awesome.

Hopefully this comment isn't so late that you'll never notice it, but I have been pining for the same thing and thinking maybe an online version is the answer. If you felt like creating one, I would join :-)
