bite my head off but I was wondering if anyone would like to be part of a political book club in this group of nonfiction? Say a small group inside a group instead of starting a totally new group?

I thought those that would like to do this can email me at www.capitalism4sale@yahoo.com with the subject line stating "POLITICAL BOOK CLUB." Once I got a list of names (user names from DU) that would want to do that, I would post them here within the nonfiction group. Each member would get a turn to pick out the book of the month for everyone to read. I figure the fairest way to decide who chooses a book is to go alphabetically by the member name. The first member alphabetically would then choose a book. If you want you can buy the book; however, if it is a book written by a right neocon, I strongly suggest getting it from the library. I refuse to put a dime in a neocon's pocket just to read their book. I do think it would be a good idea if the members did mix the types of political books up but, again, it depends what the member whose turn it is decides what the other members should read. If you have already read a book suggested, then you might want to read it again or maybe just come online the first Tuesday and Thursday of the month to discuss and debate it with the other members. Once the book is posted, the members would have 30 days from the date posted and then the first Tuesday and Thursday of the month, the members would meet on here at an agreed-upon time and discuss the book, good and bad, and get other's opinions as well as debates. I feel this would be a fun way for us to educate ourselves even more regarding the realm of politics and political history.
