Parasha proposition (Not a WoT post!)

Okay, I'm waaay slow on posting this, kept forgetting. XD

Those of you who were in the Robert Jordan newsgroup (the cool one) back in the day may remember a thing called Parasha we had going on for a while, where we'd have a schedule to all re-read certain portions of the books, then discuss them after.

Now, as stated, this isn't that, since that's already being done anyhow.

But I thought of much the same idea when considering that, hey, it's soon to be October (although I've left this go for waaay too long, and "almost" in this case is "tomorrow") and thus time for a re-read of A Night in the Lonesome October, which is pretty much tailor-made for this sort of thing.

So I had the idea that it might be cool to, over the course of the year, have one book per month, each book somehow tied in to the particular month, and a schedule of reading for each book, then the participating people can discuss each portion on the relevant day. If there's anything they find discuss-worthy of course.

Now in theory, I should have posted this idea way ahead of time and people could discuss it, come up with a possible list of books ahead of time (IF anyone's interested in the first place of course), and we could figure out what method to use (anyone posting in their own journal, a special community set up for it, whatever). As it stands though... well, if anyone is interested, we're pretty much going to have to figure it out on the fly.

So... anyone? Bueller?

I'm in, dependent upon work schedule!

That sounds fun, but I've never read A Night in the Lonesome October, so I'd have to read it rather than reread it.

No worries. I'll probably do a post tomorrow morning about it then, since there seems to be at least some interest.

Slightly ambitious, there.
