Moving our discussion forums!

Tom and I have been discussing the Ning group lately, and we’ve decided that Goodreads.com is much better suited for handling our types of discussions. They have really great tools on the site for book clubs, and we think it would be a good place for us to grow going forward.

 

Now, we imagine some of you are very attached to the Ning page, so we’re not going to be deleting it. We also know that joining yet another site can be a pain. But Goodreads is dedicated to books in a huge way, and they have the resources to enrich our discussions.

 

We already have 77 members signed up! If you’re interested in taking the discussion there, please join in. Tom and I will be devoting most of our discussion time over on that site from now on.
