As always, I've gotta go Canadian. Ordered my book, also threw in a CD I heard a bit of on the radio yesterday -- A Canadian violinist, Oliver Schroer, traveled the pilgrimage route of Camino del Santiago in Spain, and recorded music in the churches along the way. The resulting album is Camino, and I would recommend it for any blind people you know. Listen to these songs with your eyes closed, and you can almost see the rising vaults.

But I digress...

Unfortunately I cannot afford to order the book. I'm number 5 on the waiting list at the library, so hopefully I will have it in time to take part.

In the meantime - THE NURTURE ASSUMPTION was available, so I'm reading it.

Sarah, I have a feeling this discussion will go all over the place, and even without the book, you'll be able to post many a thought.

I'm curious about the Nurture Assumption as well...perhaps start a topic for it in another section? Someplace to post your thoughts as you read.

I never even considered that libraries might have this book.

I'd love to do that. I have one book to finish, and then I'm staring Nurture, so I'll be ready to begin thinking/commenting next week. How do I do that?

I'm still figuring out this process.

I use my library constantly. What they don't have, I've been able to get through inter-library loans.

Fortunately I live in a university town, so even the county library has good access to materials.

Sarah, don't worry about the 'how'...there ain't no process, as such. Read what people write, comment on it. ;)

I was referring to Chris' suggestion that I start a discussion on THE NURTURE ASSUMPTION. I am clueless about how to start a thread.

Post Re: Order your copy of "Deep Economy" here...
Actually, I'm with Sarah here. Where would you begin an informal discussion (similar to what is going on with The Road in the "Additional Literature" section) of a non-fiction text? Assuming the "Book Suggestions, Polls, & Reviews" section is for submitting books and reviews of books you want to submit for an official discussion, where would you put unofficial non-fiction discussions? Can it go in "Book Suggestions, Polls, & Reviews," or should it go elsewhere?

Sarah, once we get the word on what section a thread like this should go under, the mechanics are easy. Click "[New Topic]" located at the bottom of the screen. Fill in the subject line with an appropriately descriptive title, and post away.

Sarah and Rose

You both bring up a good point. :) I think I need to move the "Additional Literature Discussions" forum up top into the Current Book Discussions category AND rename it so that it involves both fiction and non-fiction book discussions. I'll also throw in "Short Stories" for those with an interest in smaller discussions.

Here is what I've just done...

1. Renamed the forum from "Additional Literature Discussions" to "Additional Book Discussions" Literature is associated with fiction and we want this forum to be ok for non-fiction and short stories too.

2. Moved the forum up to the Current Book Discussions section. It actually should have been up there anyway. The Discussion Forums section located right below the Current Book Discussions is really designed for topic-based discussions, not book-based discussions.

3. Edited the forum description to make it clear that the forum is designed for fiction, non-fiction and short story discussions, not simply "Additional Literature Discussions."

This is the new forum description:

Quote:
All book discussions other than our official discussions belong here. Fiction, non-fiction and short stories are welcome! Check if a thread already exists for the book or story you wish to discuss, and if not create one using the title and author as the subject line.

Does this work for you guys?

Sarah, if you wish to discuss any book that is not one of our official group readings just look in the Additional Book Discussions forum to see if someone has already created a thread to discuss the book. If you find a thread with that book title and author please use the existing thread. If you don't find one just create a new thread and use this format:

Book Title by Book Author


Example:

The Nurture Assumption by Judith Rich Harris

To create a new thread or "topic" simply enter the correct forum and click on the "New Topic" link. The rest is a matter of filling in the blanks. You pick a "Subject" title (containg the book title and author), maybe use a Posticon, and then type your post.

Once done with your post I always suggest you copy the post to your clipboard and then click the "Add Post" button. The reason I suggest you copy the post to your clipboard is because sometimes you will lose your post in Internet limbo. You'll be very frustrated if you took a lot of time composing a post and then it vanishes. So always copy your posts BEFORE posting them. If it vanishes you can just paste it back right from your clipboard.

Have fun! ::80
