    Books

    Anyone interested in doing a CF book club? I know we're all quite busy but I thought it might be cool to read a short novel every month with a discussion at the end? What do you guys think?

    Maybe... but I've already got enough books on my reading list as it is.

    Have we become bored suburban housewives already? I hope the answer is yes because with 2.5 hours of commuting every day for school/work I have nothing but time to read.

    I can probably find some time to do this if there is interest in it. Let me know.

    If we're gonna do this, we should decide on a book to read for the month of April. I think to start out, something short would be good (under 200 pages). Here are just a few suggestions. Feel free to vote on as many as you find interesting or suggest your own. If you guys don't think you'll have time to read a full novel, maybe we can do some short stories, but I want to make sure we have enough material to actually discuss.

    "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
    "The Sorrows of Young Werther" by Goethe
    "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse
    "The Penultimate Truth" by Phillip K Dick

    I might participate in something like this dependent on how much time school requires going forth. I think shorter novels and novellas would be ideal for something like this (I have 'I Am Legend' -ish length in mind). I really don't have a lot of suggestions however, as I haven't read a book that wasn't issue oriented in awhile.

    John Locke - "Second Treatise of Government"

    Under 200 pages, free.

    Wouldn't mind reading again.

    I want to read this. IDK if this is a good book for this idea, but the Kindle version comes out on the 29th, so it could be an April book.

    Sounds good to me. Was this book just released? I can't seem to find a pdf or torrent online.

    I am buying this regardless, but I also like this idea and would like for it to take off.

    I suggest everyone PM me their emails. I'll get a notification thing going at the beginning of each month so that even occasional visitors can be informed at the very least.

    I want to get a Kindle first to make this easier for me. Even though this one isn't available on Kindle yet.

    I have not found any scans online. I nominate Spitty to scan all 224 pages and make it available for us.

    It IS out on Kindle now. I was released yesterday.

    So I can't scan it.

    If there is a way to rip Kindle books to PDF's or something, let me know and I will do the dirty work.

    I have no idea how reliable this program is but there is a video provided of it seeming to work.

    I bought the book. The trial version of this software leaves a watermark on each page. I'll try it out. Hopefully it's no super distracting.

    The watermark sucks. It puts a large red block letter mark over the middle of the page.

    I don't own nor really know much about ereaders and the like, but why not just remove the DRM and then share it?
