So, there was some suggestion in my previous post that if we start up a community read-along again, I should let other people choose the books and lead the discussions.

This is less work for me, so I am all in favor of it!

Here's how I envision it working: We have a post with a sign-up sheet; people sign up to take a week. You can either choose a book when you sign up, or wait until your week comes (as long as nobody else has signed up for the same book.) At the start of your week, you make a post announcing your read-along, and at the end of the week, you make a discussion post with reading group questions, and then lead the discussion in comments.

My role will be to a) remind people their week is coming up, and b) make sure that everyone who wants to read along has the resources to do it.

Also, none of this should stop members from just randomly starting discussions whenever they felt like it!

Here is a poll:
Poll #2441 Read-along
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 10


Should we switch to you all leading read-alongs?

The concept is good, but I will explain in a comment how you should change it.

I hate you, and I hate your community.

(If you wish to sign up already, pick a Sunday in the next two months to start your week; if I get enough interest I'll do a more formal ongoing sign-up post later.)

... can I claim a week WAY in advance, like mid-May, when I'll be between classes and field school?

I'm a slow reader. I'd like to see re-reads get spread out over a longer period of time.
