Hello there URedditors! This month we will be embarking on a journey to see if a monthly book club will work well for our community. If you missed the previous post, you can find details here, but the TL;DR is that each month we will select a book to read, break down the chapters into four sections, and have a weekly discussion about it on the UReddit subreddit. At the final week of discussions you all will get to suggest and vote for the next month’s book. The only requirement is that the book must be available in a digital version to make it easily accessible.
Discussion one is now live: http://www.reddit.com/r/UniversityofReddit/comments/16dn95/bookclubdiscussion1thetimemachine/
NOTE: The weekly discussion will be posted to /r/universityofreddit with [Book Club] in the title. Questions? Send them to @thejournalizer
Class Launch: Friday, January 4, 2013 Read section 1: Chapter 1-3 due by discussion 1. Discussion 1: January 11 Read section 2: Chapter 4-6 due by discussion 2. Discussion 2:January 18 Read section 3: Chapter 7-10 due by discussion 3. Discussion 3: January 25 Read section 4: Chapter 11, 12 and epilogue due by discussion 4 Discussion 4: February 1 - Also suggest books for February’s selection due to start on February 8
January Selection: The Time Machine The book will be broken down into four sections, with four weekly discussions. Because the book is only 80 pages or so, it should be a very simple read and easy to keep up with the rest of the class.

Master's in communications. I'm sure that relates some how to reading a book. I'm also your friendly UReddit CM/mod.
