What kinds of books you we read?
Well, canonical books! But seriously, we read a variety of books, old and new, from different countries. The only non-negotiable aspect is that they must be great. Most of the books are nominated and voted on by the group. Here is a list of all the selections.
Do I have to read every book?
No. We're all busy. Sometime life gets in the way. Join us when you can. Feel free to skip a book if you'd like to.
How often are the chats? Where are the chats?
Generally, when we are discussing a book, there is one week between chats. If the book is longer, it may be two weeks. We chat on Twitter using the hashtag #CanonChat.
When are the chats?
All chats are scheduled for Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM EST. They generally last an hour.
