KBK Bookclub (January 14th) | Jane Austen's Emma

in #bookclublast year (edited)


I am glad to announce that the book chosen for the next KBK Bookclub meeting is "Emma" by Jane Austen.

The meeting shall take place at @krolestwo on January 14th at 19.00. The discussion will be held in English, but you are free to read the book in whatever language suits you best. The book is public domain and is available on the Gutenberg project website here. Several translation of the book are also available at the Rajska library.

The book was proposed by myself and supported by @justynao and @margrzeta. @wayward-dreams proposed "Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, which received a support vote from @szmulkberg. @edwinedwin proposed "Animal Farm" (G. Orwell), "Green Mile" (S. King) and "The Alchemist" (P. Coelho). The latter was supported by @hallmann. A lot of great suggestions. I remind you that books can be proposed again!

The calendar invite for the KBK Bookclub is available here. If you are curious about how the Bookclub is run, @przeczytaj presents all the details of the project. Have a read!

How often do you guys organize these book club? I would love to sponsor something in behalf of hivebookclub but I'd like to know what you guys do. So, maybe let me know if you're interested in collaborating.

Hej @macchiata, that would be awesome! We meet every second Saturday of the month at @krolestwo (Krakow, PL). As a matter of fact, we have a page on Hive (@przeczytaj) with all the details of the bookclub. I have added it to the post now!
