Post About this book discussion and live author chat
You may notice that there is a new book being announced up at the top in the current books block called, "The Genius of the Beast" by Howard Bloom. Years ago we read two of Howard Bloom's books and had a total of 3 live author chats with him. The discussions and the live chats were some of the bext experiences in our 8-year history.

While surfing around on Facebook the other day I came across Howard's Facebook Fan Page. I noticed that he had this new book coming out at the end of November of 2009 so I read a bunch of reviews and got excited.

So I emailed Howard and struck a deal with him. Howard has a large fan base. Howard agreed to help us pull in a bunch of new members specifically to discuss his book in December 2009 and January 2010. Within 30 minutes of him sending out an email to his 300+ fans 5 of them responded saying they would love to participate in an online discussion of "The Genius of the Beast."

Howard also agreed to another live chat near the end of the discussion period - so sometime at the end of January 2010. I'm hoping that a large group of our existing members will jump on this opportunity to participate in this discussion and author chat. Read the book reviews please. Howard is an incredible author and we can't help but to have a vibrant discussion whenever we tackle one of his gems.

If you are one of Howard Bloom's fans please make a brief post here letting us know you'll be participating in the upcoming book discussion. Although this forum is located down in the "Upcoming Book Discussions" section you are welcome to create threads and have discussions about anything and everything related to Howard Bloom and his writing. In fact I'd sure appreciate if some of you did indeed get the ball rolling with some interesting threads. If enough conversation starts I'll bump this forum up to the top of the site early.
