First of all, a massive apology that this didn’t go up right after we did The Choosening officially. I decided that since we now have regular members and a bit more of a routine, we wouldn’t open up the list to general voting. Instead, all the books presented at the group would have a chance to be read. We’re a small club and it means nobody has to miss out on having their book added to the list.
In September, we read Mark Henderson’s The Geek Manifesto, which spurred one of the most prolonged discussions we’ve ever had at SkepLit – and for once, it wasn’t about gaming. These are the books we’ll be reading over the next few months. We start this Sunday – I’ve booked the table and everything – so you’re welcome to come along. New members don’t need to have read the book in advance, although it definitely helps if you have.
