Welcome to The Flat Book Society

Reblogged from: Murder by Death

 

So the votes are in and tabulated and we’re now officially 

The Flat Book Society!  Anyone interested in low-stress science (no dry, academic tomes here!) is welcome to join us.

A few points:

There will be a new group read once every other month, starting September 1st.

Books will be voted on by the group.

I have created a voting list to get us started, culled from the list Themis-Athena so very generously put together from the groups suggestions.  These are the top 10 books people indicated interest in reading.

Any member of the group can add books to this list.  Books must be non-fiction and the main subject must be Science.  Please do not add self-help or psychology books.  Please note that the BookLikes system assumes if you’re adding a book, you’re voting for it, so your vote will automatically be recorded for any book you add.

Any member can vote for any number of books, so don’t think of this as a one-time vote for your favourite.  Vote for all the books you think you’d be interested in reading as part of the group.

I’ll use the two books that receive the most votes by August 15th to create the first two club reads.  These will be our group reads for September and November.

The voting list will remain in place indefinitely, so as you find books that look like they might be of interest to the group, please add them.  (Chosen books will be rolled off the list.)

Please let me know if you have any questions I didn’t cover here.  I’ve tried to make sure every book on the voting list has a summary in place, so please look over them and choose your poison!

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
