The BookBlog Book Club

The BookBlog Book Club

The BookBlog offers an interesting idea to prospective members:

"We're basically a book club that meets once a month to discuss a book. Unlike a regular book club, our discussions are all done online.

Each month, a member volunteers to moderate by choosing a book and beginning the discussion by posting a question. Members then comment on that question while the moderator pops in and out to keep the discussion going.

Discussions are held during the last full week of each month and future moderators and book selections are posted to a sidebar on the home page.

Sound interesting? Want to join? Send an e-mail to mistress at bookblog dot net."

In addition, the BookBlog has a marvelous feature called the "Gender Genie" which tries to guess the gender of a writer by the frequency of certain words used. Your prose - or that of anyone else - can be inserted into a text box for analysis.

Try it out. The results can be surprising.

"O: The Intimate History of the Orgasm by Jonathan Margolis"

This book by Jonathan Margolis,
published May 6, 2004 by Century,
will surely be a massive literary hit,
and we predict it will soon top the publication charts.

The Guardian has an edited extract at

Dark Age Ahead?

Dark Age Ahead?

Dangerous Precedent points to a new book by Jane Jacobs entitled Dark Age Ahead. Take a look at Ben Hammersley's short abstract of the contents.

I personally remain an optimist about the future, and problems are there to be solved, but we do have problems.
