So, I found two youtube channles, Nerdist and Geekandsundry on the channels they have geeky shows. On Geekandsundry, I found a half hourish show called Sword and Laser. It is a book club/review/interview show and they link to their website that has over 100 podcasts. The show also has a forum set up on Goodreads (a online bookshelf sort of) and their book club is set up there. The books are fantasy and Sci-fi (sword being fantasy)
I decided to join up with Sword and Laser. They read 1 book a month, discuss it and review it. This months book is "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons. I have started reading it and, I have to say I like it. It is a sort of Canterbury Tales'ish I'm only on the first tale, but I have read reviews and most are very positive. Some reviews talk about explicit sex scenes (I have not gotten to one yet) and there is violence so It is more adult oriented.
The reason why I am posting is to see if anyone wants to join up and talk about books? See if you agree or disagree with the show and the people they quote on the show.
I'm going to try my best to keep up lol (i just got the book last night and only 12% done).
If you have already read the book its ok feel free to join the discussion. If you can only read part of the book and ditch it because of work or family or what ever (or the book is horrible in your eyes) thats ok too we can talk about what you have read so far. Some books are not for everyone and this is a open discussion feel free to say whats on your mind.
