Default The Musicbanter Book Club

An idea of JayJamJah and I's. Basically it's pretty self-descriptive and we're just going to add rules and structure as we go along. But right now here are the only two things:

1. JJJ and I are going to approve each of the choices. This isn't to be snobby or elitist and we'll be pretty loose. We're doing this for these three reasons: Obscurity (if a book is too hard to find and no one can get it we obviously can't discuss it.) Size (if a book is way too big and it would take up a sizable amount of time to discuss we'd bypass it unless a good amount of people were up to it. Spending a month on one book might be tiresome for some people and finally Popularity (let's face it, who wants to discuss Twilight or Harry Potter for the billionth time?
2. We're going to try and go about this democratically so everyone can suggest a book and we can get a wide variety of selection.

Book one has already been decided.

That's cool, you have time. I won't start until the majority of people are ready (or if were a very small number everyone.)

Just out of curiosity, how accessible would you say The Idiot is? Whenever I hear anyone mention his other works, especially The Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment, they tend to say he's pretty hard to get. Also, to anyone who would know, which translation would you recommend?

I haven't personally read it myself, but I got through Notes from Underground easily (and found it immensely interesting and loved it.) However I did read Crime and Punishment about two years ago and didn't get all to the end...but at that point all I read was Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson, who for all their brilliance don't do much to prepare you for any other form of literature. JJJ should be able to answer your question.

How does one nominate a book to be read?

Good idea this, I'm in.

I'd like nominate Graham Greene's 'the Comedians' for a future book as well (if I may).
