An AT: Green Home Book Club?

An AT: Green Home Book Club?

On Wednesday, we posted a book review of Cadillac Desert that originally came from AT: Kitchen. Then, Pixie commented: I wonder if there's some way we can book-club it on this site?

We were intrigued. An AT: Green Home book club ... Why not? It sounds like fun to us, and there are so many books we've been meaning to read.

So we're curious: If we started a book club here in a week or so, would you be interested in participating? This would entail reading the book and participating in some sort of weekly online discussion (probably in the comment section).

We're already trying to imagine how we'll incorporate wine or coffee into this equation. It could be tough ... but, doesn't a good book club need one or the other?

Also, do you have any book suggestions?

These are a few potential titles we've come up with so far:

Cadillac Desert (obviously) by Marc Reisner
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough and Michael Braungart
The Philosophy of Sustainable Design by Jason F. McLennan

What do you think?

We're kind of excited. We've never done anything like this on an AT site, but we think it could be a good time.
