    To those that expressed an interest in participating in a book chat here at our Forums, thank you. :) Now the next step we need to take is to begin to organize how the group will function.

    Everyone is invited to participate in a "Book Chat Formulation" discussion on Thursday, July 31, 2003 at 8pm, ET, in our general Voice Chat Room. At that time we will discuss the following:

    How frequently to meet
    What day/time to meet
    Name for the book chat series
    Identify the types of books you will be interested in reading.
    (Note: The booklist will be confined to African American authors only.)

    Basic ground rules for operation, which will include:

    --how voice chat works
    --roles of room moderators and chat facilitators
    --length of each chat session
    --Method for communicating to each other

    Those that plan to attend, please let us know by responding to this thread. In preparation for our discussion, you might want to think ahead about who your favorite authors are, what was the title of the last book you read and come to the discussion with a list of, at least, 3 book titles you're interested in but haven't read yet.

    Feel free to post any questions you might have about the book chat series in this thread.

    Thank you and peace!
    NNQueen, moderator

    Sister,
    I am a new member of this community and I will certainly try to be present. I was a member of an online book chat before and enjoyed it very much.

    Ohhhh Doc Parker !!! i'm so sorry you've not been able to get in! can you tell me what browser you are using? it needs Internet Explorer in order to work properly. Tell me too, is AOL your ISP? It too requires a little extra help ... let me know.

    Sorry i'm just seeing this note.
