Post subject:  How should this discussion be organized?

There are 19 chapters in The Hobbit. Should we create a separate thread for all 19 chapters or is it more likely that doing so will result in many threads with little to no activity?

  • An Unexpected Party
  • Roast Mutton
  • A Short Rest
  • Over Hill And Under Hill
  • Riddles In The Dark
  • Out Of The Frying-Pan Into The Fire
  • Queer Lodgings
  • Flies And Spiders
  • Barrels Out Of Bond
  • A Warm Welcome
  • On The Doorstep
  • Inside Information
  • Not At Home
  • Fire And Water
  • The Gathering Of The Clouds
  • A Thief In The Night
  • The Clouds Burst
  • The Return Journey
  • The Last Stage

19 threads are too many. I originally thought two chapters per thread but when I looked through the novel the chapters are fairly short so it may be best to go with three chapters per thread. This way whether you read fast or slow each member will be able to comment in each thread. If we add in first and final thoughts there would be a total of seven chapter threads.

I like the way "Atlas Shrugged" is set up and I would like to see every fiction novel set up the same way. Each thread represents a good size chunk so there are many ideas that can be discussed in each thread. Each thread needs substance and topics from the chapters and combining three at a time will provide that. If there are too many threads it can get confusing.


Also, if it's not too early , I would like to be DL on this one. :)
