One LibraryThing, One Book

Beginning October 2013, LibraryThing is sponsoring a new reading group, inspired by "One City, One Book" and "The Big Read," and designed to bring LibraryThing together as a community to read and talk about one book a month: fiction, non-fiction, new books and classics.

Here was the introductory post on the Blog. Other One LT, One Book posts can be found here.

How will this work? Who knows. We're still talking about it. See the Future Suggestions thread to weigh in.

Our selection for March 2017 is Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies. See the blog post for details.

Preliminary discussion for Interpreter of Maladies will begin March 1st. We ask that members refrain from creating new discussion topics until then. We'll be dividing the book up into three sections, of three short stories each:

March 8th Stories 1-3
March 15th Stores 4-6
March 22nd Stories 7-9

By March 22nd, everyone should have finished the book.

When starting a new thread, please make your title in the following format "Interpreter of Maladies: [Thread Subject]".

Thinking about joining us for this group read? Say hi in the "Introduce Yourself" thread, and feel free to post as you're reading in "First Impressions".

To help things along, we've added the ability to hide spoilers within Talk. You can hide spoiler-y text in your posts by using the "spoiler" tag. See the blog post for more details.
