Do you like reading, and talking about books? Do you like surprises?
We like both. Spread is our version of a book club. Each month, we will choose a few members at random and buy them a book. They can come back here, and discuss the book. The only thing we ask is that when they are finished with the book they pass it on to another person. It's like a book club without the deadlines or cookies or weekly meetings.
Of course, you don't have to wait for us to send you something to read. You can start discussions about any book, genre, author, topic, new item... You can suggest books for others, or contribute copies and have us send them out to folks.
It's all about being bookish and social at the same time - and encouraging others to do the same.
