Online book group

To those who were/are interested in joining me for an online book group, please respond to this post with book suggestions -- fiction and non-fiction.

I'm thinking broad instead of narrowly-focused. Then I'll post a poll and we can vote on our first selection. I'm going to friends-lock and filter those posts eventually, so if you're interested but haven't mentioned it yet, let me know.

Also, while lurking is perfectly acceptable in many contexts, I don't think it makes much sense in this particular one. Please tell me if you disagree, but otherwise, once this jells, please join only if you're willing to actually try the books and participate in an informal online discussion about them. I don't mean we have to make 1,000 comments; I just don't think it will work well if we're silent observers. Defeats the purpose, no?

Any other thoughts or suggestions, please share. I haven't done this before, so I'm flying blind. :)
