Yay Books!

Welcome to Fact/ Word (our name has a wonderful story to explain its origins, but we haven't come up with it yet).

This community is the brainchild of Ariel and Erin as we discussed needing a book group. Seeing as how we are not *quite* on opposite ends of the country, but certainly in no position to meet once a month in person, we thought an el jay community would be the way to go. 

At the moment this is a quasi moderated community, we'll see how things progress and decide what to do with it from there.

The book that prompted the creation of the group is Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs by Chuck Klosterman.  It makes sense then, for that to be the first book we discuss.

I've never started a book group before, but it seems that for an online book group it makes the most sense to just post about stuff as we read it, perhaps organizing by chapters so that people don't have to read about things in the book that they haven't read yet... okay that got really convoluted.

Anyway, we'll see how this goes!

Hehehe... i borrowed it from Leia, and I think Erin is going to get it from the library. Do you have a library near to you? We like libraries!
