EDIT- I'm doing some thinking on how to put this thing together, I'll edit this out once we get a good process, and it'll be replaced with that process.
Once we know who is interested in participating, we will open the floor for book suggestions. While we could worry about if the book costs or not, we need to remember that LIBRARIES exist, and as such we can all go get a free membership to a library and check the book out. This allows us the ability to literally read ANYTHING. For the start, however, I suggest that we look at DRM free books that are accessible digitally. We will VOTE on which book that we want to read.
So, there are a couple of ways to do this.
1. We read the ENTIRE book, then spend time going over it chapter by chapter.
2. We read the book in sections together and are surprised by whatever is happening. Either way, I think that the discussion needs to be divided out:
At first, I was thinking that we discuss each chapter of whatever book by itself, but depending on the book that may not be feasible. So what I say is whatever "sections" or "divisions" that we decide on a book to boob basis we spend a month on; two weeks roughly to read the section and then two weeks to discuss. Also, I suggest that each person take a month to be the leader of the discussion. That means that you'll be responsible for reading and really knowing your section ahead of time.
These are just some thoughts
