A few of our customers have asked us if there’s any chance we might start a book club. So this is an inquiry to see if that’s something that you’d be interested in, Dear Readers. So! If you are interested, please answer the following questions in an e-mail (cut’n’paste it, yo!) to us at info at quimbys dot com :
Is this a good idea? Lame idea? Only do it if it’s not so feel-good-cheesy-support-groupish or classroomy?
What types of books would you want to read? Fiction? Zine-related books, zines themselves, essays, political, graphic novels? Etc.?
How often would you want to meet? Here? Or somewhere else? What day or night of the week would you want it on? And for how long should it meet? How many people do you feel like should there be as a minimum for it to be fun, effective, etc. so that you don’t feel like you’re the only person at the party?
How do you want it structured? Free form? Someone mediating it? Or like, no format, just see how it plays out?
What things would be necessary for it to be worth doing or for you to participate?
What else do you want to tell us about this? Comments? Anyone? Anyone? Is anybody out there? Hello? Is this thing on? (tap tap) Testing testing, can I get some more vocals on the monitor?
