There is a general explanation of the group and some answers to FAQ under the discussion thread GROUP GUIDELINES. The past BOTM can be found pinned to the top for 2010 and 2009 if you want to search discussions you can join in anytime.
The books of the month (BOTM) that the group is reading are pinned to the top. September books are;
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS by Jules Verne
SLAUGHTER HOUSE FIVE by Kurt Vonnegut
CANDIDE by Voltaire
You can read one, all or none. If you read another book from the one of the official lists please post a review and rating in the discussion thread for other books.
I'd say about 5 pages into it I was fully prepared to finish the entire trilogy. I just finished Brave New World which I thought was going to be loosely the same idea (I LOVE scary what-happens-in-the-future type books like 1984, handmaids tail, Fahrenheit 451) but it just really really disappointed me. Hunger games has made up for it completely.
see you very very soon
