Yo, Bitches! Are you two planning another BBC discussion anytime soon?


Okay, here’s the deal: Trollop and I have this love-hate relationship with our BBC. Since we started this blog, it’s been our agenda to have our very own book club. When we finally established it last year, oh joy, happy-happy! We’re more excited than little pervs on their way to Pornland.

We love our BBC, no doubt about it. It’s most rewarding: we get to introduce kick-ass books to readers; we get to share the luuurve... Problem is, most of you are lazier than me or Trollop. Believe me, that’s saying a LOT. :/

I’m not complaining because so few are participating. I even understand. Like Trollop said, typing out answers alone at home is not the same as discussing something face to face. I feel sad about it, though, especially when you infidels ask for BBC and when discussion day comes you don’t show up. I feel so used... *sniff*

Ya know, I pray our readers to be less lazy. I know how to pray! Not that it works! I’m telling you, praying you heathens participate on BBC is like asking Santa for my very own studmuffin with super penis. Honestly, it’s not like I’m asking for a penis somewhere between the size of a horse and a giant mythical super stallion... hmph!

Don’t get me wrong, we appreciate all of you lovely people who participate. We had some very successful discussions and it’s all because of you. From the bottom of our wicked trollopy-harloty hearts, we thank you. You can have Trollop’s first born quarter-duck quarter-amoeba, heh. Oh, and if you have any suggestions to improve our BBC, please, we’re all ears.

We can have BBC back on January since people are busy during the holidays, shopping or doing turkey or Christmasy stuff... BUT, if you guys want to have it this December, let us know. It’s my turn to pick our next selection and I already have a FABULOUS book in mind. Clue: It’s one of my favorite books evah, and methinks you’re going to like it too. *g*

Okay, I have promised myself that I would participate in the BBC, but (also hanging my head in shame) I didn't feel like reading Ann of Green Gables. I'm sorry, but I never said I wasn't lazy. I am the definition of lazy. But I swear that I will read and discuss whatever from now on as long as you wait until after the holidays.

Sorry, but the books you are picking are just not stuff I like to read. I read several of the Dark Hunter's (and still read one now and then; back-to-back DH's is too much for me.) I tried reading The Bronze Horseman, and just couldn't get in to it. Ann of Green Gables, The Other Boleyn Girl, et al, just aren't to my taste. Not sure what I can suggest; I tend to like contemporaries (but not chick lit) with a military-theme (with a kick-ass heroine), though they have to be romance (not suspense with sex thrown in to capture the romance genre readers).

I try to participate every discussion. Usually I want to talk about a book I just read. But with BBC, I have to wait till the discussion starts.

Starting early is impractical though, because not everyone has the time to finish the book in a few days or a week.

Whatever you decide, I'm with you BB.

I agree with Petra a month is too long for a book you already finished but too short for one you haven't started. I liked the way the Dark Hunter discussion was done.

I'm sorry for being lazy :S

I do love your BBC. I discover great books and the questions during the discussion make me think.

As for suggestions, I like love stories. ;)

I know I haven't been participating lately and so sorry about that. But I really loved Paullina Simons and Time Traveler's Wife and the Twilight BBCs. Please don't stop!

I will participate if I've read them... Otherwise I cant :( It would be a bit weird talking about a book I've never even heard about....

I always feel like by the time I show up other people have already made the comments I would have made (stupid time difference).

But please do another one! I'll try to get here earlier, lol.

Okay, so you guys agree, no BBC this December?

Regarding book selection. If it's just for the sake of enjoying a good book, we would have done romance every time LOL. Like Paradise, Welcome to Temptation... The thing is, for BBC to be a success, we have to have a book that is good for discussion not just something we can gush about LOL. Like Trollop said, books where people can theorize about the plot or books that evoke strong feelings in readers. Anyway, if you guys have a specific book you'd like us to discuss, let us know. ;)

Just a thought, but why don't you do the book club discussions in chat? If you set up the chat room not to erase the chats, or to archive, you can pick up where you left off at different times with different groups.

You can always use the chat room on my site. If you let me know when you schedule, I can reset the clean up. for that room so the chat stays "live".

Thanks for the offer Sarah. Actually we've thought about doing chats for our BBC before, but we just didn't had the time to do much about it. We'll definitely consider it again.

If I've read the book, I usually participate. Actually I miss doing the BBC.

I love the BBC, but the verra intellectual questions felt like an exam in my 4th level Biochemistry with that harridan of a profesor watching over my shoulder...and you know, all my clever retorts just kind of blank out.

Silly I know...but maybe you could include an 'stupid' question amongst the intellectual ones?
