2013 Book Club Sign-up
« on: October 20, 2012, 09:02:57 PM »
For the past three years we have been reading a book a month.  New members are welcome to join in. 

Sign-up here for what month you'd like to lead the discussion.  At first we'll start off with one month per person.  If we find later (Deceember 1?) on that there are months that no one's signed-up for then we may let people who have already signed up a chance to lead in another month.

And please remember to put your forum name, the book title and what series (Grosset & Dunlap Mystery Stories, Simon & Schuster Mystery Stories, Casefiles, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys SuperMystery'88, Hardy Boys and Tom Swift Ultra Thriller, Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers, Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers Super Mystery, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mystery'07, Graphic Novel, Clues Brothers, Secret Files, Be A Detective, Super Sleuths!...I don't think I forgot any series---and Hardy Boys Adventures doesn't count because it's not out yet, and because the books will be getting their own discussion pages as they are released!) 

Dinosaur Dan if you want to do High Stakes again, go ahead and repost it.

Still thinking on this one, but I'm sure I will want to snag one of the months somewhere...
I'll have to see if there are any favorite Hardy Boys books I've been wanting to do still....so many to choose from

Okay, I'm kinda wanting to do a different kind of book but I don't know if it will really fit the format of this or if many Hardy Boys fans will have this in their collections or not. (Or at least have readible access to it.) Would it be too much to try something like The Hardy Boys Survival Handbook? It does contain 8 short stories but there's not necessarily one flowing narrative or anything, so it's not really the same and I understand that. If it doesn't fit the scope of the book club, that's okay.

If not, then I'll take The Shattered Helmet (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #52) for February, if that's cool.

I don't think it matters whether it is one of the short-story books.  But what do the rest of you think?

I agree - I think it would work fine with the short stories. :) 8)

Okay- well, maybe I'll hold off and see how many others take up available slots. If there are still some open slots by the time December rolls around, then maybe I'll take on one of the unclaimed months with The Hardy Boys Survival Handbook.

That would be cool.  :) 8) So far we've got representatives from 3 different incarnations of The Hardy Boys- the Digests (i.e. #59-190), the original series (i.e. #1-58, whether original text or revised editions) and The Hardy Boys Casefiles.
It'd be nice to have some representatives from other series as well... like say-
Quote
Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys SuperMystery'88, Hardy Boys and Tom Swift Ultra Thriller, Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers, Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers Super Mystery, Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mystery'07, Graphic Novel, Clues Brothers, Secret Files, Be A Detective, Super Sleuths!

and possibly other books still.

Well, really it's only 2 incarnations that are represented, since the Originals and Digests are the same series, just different publisher's (of course #'s 59-66 have been released by Grosset & Dunlap and Simon & Schuster).

And, remember with the Hardy Boys/Tom Swift Ultra Thriller series, we are doing "Time Bomb" next month, so "The Alien Factor" is still available for 2013 and beyond.

True, but I meant "incarnation" in a more loose sense- I know that the Originals and Digests are really the same series, but even so- there is a definite difference in the writing style for both. The Digests started out from #59 in a similar fashion to earlier books, but by #84, the series started changing things up some with fewer chapters and tighter stories. (Not saying that's a bad thing necessarily- I enjoy all of them. I was just saying there is a bit of a difference.) But yes- it is still all the same series.
