A few days ago I inquired with the Field Marshall here as to his thoughts on a book forum. He liked the idea so here we are – guess I got myself a job I wasn’t looking for in being a moderator – that’s kool though. Don’t know what I’ll do as a moderator but;
My basic idea:
  1. 1.)Start threads on any book we’re reading. Write daily or every couple days about what we read. That way any book that we read will have a complete synopsis at the end. A book reference – with maybe some personal thoughts and comments by self and others.
  • 2.)I don’t see any reason why any book couldn’t be talked about –i.e. I don’t think the forum has to be exclusively subject related – AAM/WWII, though relevant books would be good.
  • 3.) ebooks would also be good – Maybe we can get Denis’s post on ebooks on this forum – that was a good site. I assume more will be added to that thread at some time
  • 4.) And anything else that comes to mind.
Thanks!

I will try to move your origional Books post down into the new section. Have not move a threads yet so will have to figure it out. I also enabled youTube today for the site. I am looking forward to introducing some of my favorite books to members with some reviews.
