I think it would be fun to meet in person and discuss the books. I know that this is not possible for everyone all of the time, and we would of course still blog about the books too...but I want more opinions...so comment PLEASE!
Also, if we meet in person maybe I could host the first meeting say the end of November or first part of December. We could have someone in charge of hosting and assign someone to maybe take notes and post on the blog so that we could get everyone involved. Let me know what you think!
