What do you think should be included in a book review and how do you feel about spoilers?
We could maybe bring LT into it a little more and use the suggester feature. For instance, if we picked out one book that we really like and had the suggester give us a list based on that book, then talk about the first ten or twenty or something like that. It'd be kind of like a "meme" but still fun to blog about.
The rating system is a good question. Another might have to do with accepting recommendations - do you have a friend who always recommends good/bad books? And what do you do when a friend recommends a book and you hate it?
Have you actually ever read any of the books on your unsuggester, and what did you think of them? Or, pick 1 or 2 or 10 of the books on your unsuggester, and discuss why you think they are appropriate or why you think LT has lost it's cyber-marbles.
Example, a friend recommended it/forced it on you and you don't want to hurt their feelings.
Do people's book collections influence your feelings toward them, would you be a friend to someone who's collection was the complete opposite of yours or what if they weren't a reader at all?
I would be really interested in a discussion on banned books, or more specifically on people (usually parents) who try to remove books from libraries. I find this such a distressing trend and I'm interested in what other book-lovers think about it.
Covers. Are you determined that the cover that shows for your book is the actual cover you have or you don't mind as long as there is a cover or do you just go with the blank default? Do you scan and upload covers?
Also: hardcover, trade paperback or mass market paperback? Most of my books are hardcover and it was really annoying when I was loading them into LT that it would often only bring up paperback editions as an option.
in my market it plays from 4-6pm but you can check at NPR.ORG if you are curious about this story. i thought it might be worth checking out...
