One LibraryThing, One Book
One LibraryThing, One Book is an occasional group read organized by staff. We try to pick popular books lots of people will be reading. There's a schedule, and staff post some questions, but discussion is free and informal.
Our selection for November-December 2020 is Barack Obama's A Promised Land. Selling almost a million copies in its first week, Obama is this season's publishing juggernaut. To get a feel for it, read Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's New York Times Review or listen to Terri Gross' Fresh Air author interview.
The idea is to start discussing sections on these dates. This is just a guide. We won't be stopping members from getting ahead!
Monday, November 30. Part One.
Monday, December 7. Part Two and Three.
Monday, December 14. Part Four and Five.
Monday, December 21. Part Six and Seven.
Topics are set up for the parts, and a general topic for Introductions and general discussion.
If you want to start a new topic, do so in the format "Obama, A Promised Land - [Topic Subject]".
The section topics assume you've read the section. Outside of that you may want to add spoiler-y text in your posts by using the "spoiler" tag. See the blog post for more details.
