Sunday Book Club

A few Shakers have requested a weekly book club, with its own open thread every week, and, because when the Shakers ask, the Shakers receive, here it is!

Well, technically, this is just the introduction. It will begin in earnest next Sunday, and our first book (because it was central to the discussion that prompted the request for the book club) is Susan Faludi's Backlash. So, if you'd like to participate, dig out your copy (or get one here) and I'll open a discussion thread next Sunday.

Since this is a brand new feature, we'll see how it goes next week; maybe we'll stretch out one book over a couple of weeks or maybe we'll choose a new book each week... We can make adjustments as we go.

In the meantime, enjoy Backlash. See you here next Sunday.
