Can we form a forum or a group online here where we can all read the same book and then discuss it, post comments or other insights we might have about the readings? Any thoughts about doing this?

Afaik we don't have the technology to make groups, but you can start a thread, and there have been such threads here.

Cool. I don't know if anyone will have this book, but I can always try and see what happens. Thanks for the suggestion.

Depends upon the book. I have been in several book "clubs" and wasted hours and hours of time on books I did not enjoy.

But, as long as it is open ended, sounds like a good idea.

I've warned you about that.

I think a thread can work well for book discussion, as well as reviews and other commentary. I encourage you to start and hope to follow, even though in my experience it will be hard to find many people simultaneously reading the same book. Would you consider older, free classics?

Sorry for delay in response, we've been camping. I recently finished St Augustine's Enchiridion (Handbook) which I thought was very interesting and would love to hear others' comments. It can readily be found free on web, although it's also widely sold.
