I would like to start a book club for 2012 for Giant Bomb and was wondering who else would.
Yes, thousand times yes. Count me in.
I hope I don't come off as a jerk but I don't agree with either recommendation for the first book. We shouldn't do something related to gaming, let's not limit ourselves.
My pick would be Fahrenheit 451, it'd be a good start. Think about it, it's a book about book burning, what better way to start then with something that'll show us the importance of literature. Just putting it out there.
But I'm up for anything, mainly sci-fi. More specifically hard sci-fi or speculative fiction, like Solaris or Rendezvous with Rama.
We do have a book club that needs more members.
@Moriarty: Well it's not as much picked as a possible starter due to video games as it is a fun easy read. Kinda start this whole thing off with something with relative ease then go from there.
I didn't mean to be a dick. It's just that I have a personal bias towards Ready Player One and had never heard of jPod. Also, considering the time I spend focusing on video games, I want my other hobbies to scratch different itches.
On a side note ... we should totally be called the "Bookaneers."
