I was having a chat with @ami and what would you guys think of starting a Civil War book club? The idea is that we will pick a book from a list of around 5-10 options, people can bring up their own ideas just in case my list doesn't include what everyone wants. Once we get started the plan is to read one chapter at a time and then comment on our opinions and ideas on the content. I am not sure how long we want to give people to read each chapter? I know some people's schedules are busier than others and people read at different paces. (Two days- week per chapter?) I would definitely like to be involved in this if it takes off, in either a leader or follower capacity. I would prefer a variety of newer books as options, which will decrease the chance that most people will have already read it, but I don't want the book to be too expensive so that some people have to go out and buy a 35 dollar volume. * my personal choice would be Grant by Ron Chernow since I know many people on the site (including myself) have already preordered it. I'll give this a few days and we will see which book gets the most votes.
