The Austin Less Wrong Book Club recently finished reading SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome by Mary Beard, so it’s now time to nominate and vote on the next book we will be reading.
For those who aren’t familiar with the book club, every week we choose a section of a book to read (usually a few chapters) and meet via Discord video chat to discuss the reading. It is a great way to motivate yourself to read books you otherwise would not have and to get a chance to discuss the ideas in the books at length with the other group members.
First we will have a period for everyone to submit nominations on what book we will read next. To nominate a book, just submit a response to this form with your book nomination and a brief explanation of why you think it would be a good book for us to read. You can see the list of books that have been nominated here. Once the nomination period is over we will have a voting period where we will vote on which one of the nominations we will read next. Please be willing to commit to come to the weekly discussion meetings on a regular basis if your nominated book is chosen. The nomination period ends at 2022/06/26 8:00:00 CDT.
Looking forward to reading a new book with you all!
