The All-New Book Club

More announcements will be coming shortly, but we're starting with something easy.

A new book club needs a new name. Suggestions taken until December 16 at noon, EST, to be followed by a three-day poll with all the possibilities.

I'm just afraid the club would get hammered and flattened.

We would have the nominations and they'd work perfectly. Then we'd have the vote and then get hammered and flattened.

I ran across this quote recently and I think it could be fun:

Part of me likes this, for the reference to the underlying quote, but mostly I think it probably creates the wrong initial impression about what sort of books we read.

We just need to add the quote a few places so the intention becomes more clear.
