For Christmas, my daughter gave me "The Golden Compass" by Philip Pullman, book one of the "His Dark Materials" trilogy. So, it got me to thinking - maybe we should resurrect the ol MoHo Book Club.
For those who joined the Mormon queerosphere within the last year, about a year or so ago the great -L- organized the MoHo Book Club. You joined the 'club' by simply declaring your membership. Members of the club picked a book to read and then wrote their own review in their own blog. The month I joined they had picked a movie, in lieu of a book, "States of Grace" (you can read my review here). After that we read "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" by Susanna Clarke (my review is here). But, the MoHo book club sort of fizzled out shortly after that.
But, it's a new year, we have a lot of new people here in the Mormon queerosphere. Perhaps we could try it again. This month we read "The Golden Compass" - read it, blog about it, and see if we can figure out what the brouhaha is all about. After we're done with the "His Dark Materials" trilogy, we could solicit ideas for other books to read, perhaps put up a poll to pick one. It doesn't have to be fiction, we could pick church books, biographies, history, whatever floats our collective boats.
So, whaduya say? Any takers?
