sublime2004 Posted March 22, 2004 Share Posted March 22, 2004 [color=darkred][b][size=1] In many of my posts, I have made references to the books [URL=http://www.huxley.net/bnw/][color=blue][i]Brave New World[/color][/i][/URL] by Aldous Huxley. And, I am saddened to say that I have not recieved one reply even acknowledging its existence. The only thing I can think of is that no one has read it. Which, to me, is extremely surprising. This site is full of sci-fi fans and Huxley was so far ahead of his time, it was almost rediculous. This is why I feel it important to inform and culture you in something other than manga. Not to say that manga isn't one of the greatest things in the world, but there are other options. What I hope to do, with the blessing of the OB staff, is to have a bunch of people join this book club and we read it. I Know what you may be thinking: I'm not buying a book just for some stupid thread some 16 year old boy started. This is not necessary. I have found a website that features the entire novel. It is formatted in 18 easy to read, one-chapter pages that are very useful in the set-up of this club. What I propose is: There will be a sign-up for the club. All you have to do is write a post saying that you want to join. No need for a bio or weapons. We will read one chapter a day and discuss it in this forum the next day. That's it. Pretty simple, huh? Anyone is welcome to join, so long as they join before we start reading the book. If this proposition is acceptable to you, please feel free to sign up. I will let you know when this is starting and I will wait three days for a confirmation PM from you so I and you know that we are all on the same page, so to speak. P.S.: I f you want to get a head start, or if you just want to check out the lay out of the book, click on the link above. Thanks and happy posting.[/color][/b][/size] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
