I would be happy to read some non-fiction, like important works like the prince, or others. I would also be quite happy to read fiction works, even old and dusty ones like Treasure Island. I'd be delighted to return to some asimov, or some doc smith, or others.
The point of the book club is to read and discuss, but more importantly to enjoy.
It appears that a schism is forming in the book club. Well, we don't all have to read the same books just because we're all in the book club. If someone wants to do some club reading, but doesn't want to read non-fiction, they should still be able to, and its a club if multiple people are reading together.
I think that, while keeping the number of threads down increases posting, it can also create an illusion of rules and structure that isn't necessarily present.
I propose that we solve this problem by making this the main thread, and create two new threads, such as fiction book club and non-fiction book club. Or a new thread for each book, to help keep that discussion on track.
Does this solution work for people?
