Each month we will select a book to read, break down it down into two sections, and have two 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 1
- Discussion 2
Just be interested in reading, and come ready with questions and answers.
NOTE: The weekly discussion will be posted to /r/universityofreddit with [Book Club] in the title. Questions? Send them to @thejournalizer

February 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.
