Hey Sue,

We're curious about how they work. There's been talk over the years about
starting various types of book clubs for members and we were hoping to learn a
bit more about how existing ones.

You do raise a good question about privacy, and we aren't interested in who is
in what group or anything like that. We are just hoping to learn a bit more
about existing ones to figure out how to potentially make one successful. I
listed everything we are interested in learning about in the hopes that someone
might be able to give me more info, but not really expecting anyone to give me
all of that info.

Hope that clarifies things!

I do noto belong to a book club, but I am curious as to why Bookshare would
want all that info. It seems like an invasion of privacy to me, but I hope this
doesn't start a thread or stir up a hornet's nest. The reason I don't belong to
a group is because I am a Braille only user.

Hi all,

We would love to get a little more info about book groups that you all
belong to, including whether your group does a phone chat (which I
believe the sci-fi group does), online chat, list serves, etc., how
you pick your books, how often you get together, and how many members your
group has.

Feel free to contact me off-list
