Back in July (2009, in case this idea survives beyond the inaugural book), I kicked off an unconventional book club (due to the suggestion of the ever-awesome Srah) — instead of everybody reading a book at the same time and then gathering in someone’s living room to talk about it and eat brownies or something, we would each receive a single copy of the official book club selection in the mail, read it, write notes in the margins, and pass it on to the next person so he or she could do the same. Oh, and the official book club selection would be an abomination in the face of literature. A terrible book.
The first selection of the Terrible Book Club is Apocalipstick, by Sue Margolis. It is winging its way around the world now.
I set up this page to have a place for members to discuss things related to the Terrible Book Club — receipt and/or shipping of the book, questions or comments (“God, this book really IS terrible!”), ideas or suggestions for future selections, etc. Also, if anyone missed the first round and would like to get in on any future Terrible Book Club action, this is the place to mention that.
So here it is. Discuss.
