I am living in Oaxaca, Mexico, and one of the few things I miss from the U.S. is the book group. As a compulsive reader the Kindle has been a miracle for me. For the first time in almost 15 years I can read what I want and not what I can find.
I know very few men with Kindles in Oaxaca and as I get older the ratio of men to women dips farther. So, I want to try and organize a book group that will operate by email. I really have no idea what I'm doing but I'll follow Peter Drucker's advice for successful organizations and "do it, try it, fix it."
I would like for the genre to be open because one of the things I enjoyed about my book group was that it led me to read books I would never have picked off the shelf in a bookstore. My one exception would be, and this might be because of the timing, but I don't want to read, and fight over, political books. I'm fed up with that particular topic. When the book group selected books for the year we had a couple of guys who alwasy plugged political or religious books but none were ever selected by the group.
I would like to suggest that, as with the group I was in, when someone recommends a book and it's selected they will be responsible for leading the discussion.
That's all I can think of now but I'd like the group to be limited to fifteen members. Send me an email if you're interested. My email address is:
