The Very First Dis Book Club Discussion Thread - The Pirate Latitudes

We have decided to start a reading club where several of us read the same book at the same time and discuss it here on the Dis Unplugged Board.

Our first Dis Book Club selection is The Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton.

I will only ask one thing of the folks posting on this particular thread and that is that we keep this thread to the discussion topic at hand.

We have a great many "social" threads where peeps can be checked on, post counts can be increased, expensive purses can be oohed over etc....

This thread will be for the discussion of this particular book.

Should this type of thing intrigue you, but this book not be to your taste....please be patient. I'm sure there will be another selection along in the future.

Everybody read!

I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

I just came back from the library. As I was standing in front of the best sellers shelf, the librarian put this out on the shelf. It must be fate! Looking forward to starting this book today.

Seeing as how it's March 1st and keeping in mind that some folks are going to need to wait for a bit to get it from the library would it be fair to say we wait two weeks to begin actual discussion of the book and the hopefully all will have read it by March 15th? Or should we make it a little longer?

We could call this one the March book and select one for April and those of us that have easier access could read ahead and it would give others a little more time to get their "April" copies.....

Thoughts? Discuss.......

I'm game as long as Nikki is not handing out tests.

I'm going to download the book (file) from my library tonight.

I received this book for my birthday to 'throw' me off the fact that I was getting a Kindle and this will be my first paper book since getting my Kindle in Nov. I wonder if I remember how to work a hardcover, paper book?

Sounds fun! I'm in!

Sounds good to me.

Let's shoot for our discssion starting on or about March 15th and at that time we can pick a book for April.

Please keep in mind that this is the beginning stages of this Club....so if we find out that we have to speed things up a bit....or more likely....slow things down a bit (we all know that the best laid plans can go wildly astray)...we can do that.

I'm hoping that this will become a sort of fluid process.

I will be announcing this on this week's podcast to let everyone know that we are getting started and offer an open invitation to join us.
