Slate starts a book club

Slate has been talking about some sort of participatory book club for awhile. It looks like they are finally going to do it. This week Jacob Weisberg asked everyone to Join the Slate Book Club:

Here’s how it will work: First, get the book we’ve chosen a few weeks in advance. It will be a work of fiction or nonfiction, something current or a classic. Read it by the deadline. Then, offer your views to other readers and Slate’s critics in a special section of “The Fray.”

Sounds fun to me. Since my Blog Book Club idea failed misarably what is there to lose?

The first book is The Fortress of Solitude. Better get cracking the book is 528 pages!
