Hi. I would like to clarify my statement on starting another mailing
list. If someone else is interested in moderating it, I will be happy to
start it and put them in charge. I agree that I personally have no
interest in a traditional book club where a bunch of people are reading the
same thing at the same time. That's why we still have libraries. However,
if I get enough requests or there is demand for it, I can start the list
soon. Really, my main reason for offering is that I don't like freelists
and it has several annoyances. I know that I am not the only one who is
frustrated by this.

However, as far as I know, in the traditional sense of a book club being a place where members read the same book at the same time and then discuss it, I don't think there is one. It sounds as if Tony would be interested in starting one and monitoring it. You both might ask in both lists how many people would be interested and start one of your own, or ask Marissa if bookshare could start one if you find that enough people are interested. Maybe some bookshare members and/or nonmember volunteers who aren't on either list would be interested.
