Start Here! You Are Invited to Book Club.

right-aligned image
Welcome to your seat at the RPGX book club! Every month, we will be discussing a different book or author. Sometimes our choice will connect to gaming or fantasy or sci-fi, but sometimes it will be simply a book that one of the folks who hangs out in book club thinks will be an awesome fit.

How do I join? Just participate.

How do I participate? The active thread will be pinned to the top of the forum, but you can chat in any of the book threads if you want to reinvigorate an old discussion or add your two cents. Read the month's book, or read about the book, or have an opinion about why you will never read that &^*@&%^@&%#ing book, and then jump in and post.

Spoilers? We tend to use spoiler buttons for the first half of the month, and by then, it’s assumed you have read it, so reader beware. We also use spoiler buttons on posts that might spoil a related title for someone.

How do I suggest a book? Just do it in the active thread. If you see a book suggested that sounds interesting to you, chime in and say so!

What is with the "Theme" in the charts below? In our second year, we loosely revisited the same categories as the first year, so if you want inspiration for a suggestion, look at the previous year's chart to see what kind of book might be good.

This is a simple, no frills, drop in, drop out, come as you are, come when you want, inclusive place for readers, and you are welcome!
