   Discussion: Would you use a "Book Picks" section?

Books were the first thing that came to mind -- this would be a page just like the music page where Fruheads could review other things. Please pipe in if you have other ideas!

How about just a culture-in-general section. Books, movies, theater, television, computer games... I mean, if I'm looking to be entertained, I don't particularly care what medium it utilizes.
renita Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
i too would like them separated by medium...

because, not only do i think like jaci, (so much so it's scary sometimes) but also because i would maybe get confused betweeen movies, books etc. with the same name... yes, sometimes i am that scattered. *sigh*

I think the idea of having forums for discussion of books is really good. Books, even more than music, lend themselves to great discussions.

... that we read any variety of books. *grin* With the exception of Mists of Avalon and Die Upon a Kiss, I haven't read anything that wasn't Star Wars in years... :P So, I'd take a look, but there wouldn't be much of a point in me adding anything, except maybe as a way of keeping track of how many I've still yet to read... hey... maybe I like the idea after all. ;)
renita Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
of course, not all fruheads are keeping a fruhead diary either. I think this is more to check out if there's interest at all, as opposed to finding out who -wouldn't- use it ;D

Besides I can think of worse things to assume than that people read.

english majors represent!! i, too, am all about the book recommendations, because it's not like i don't have enough books on my to-do list already, thanks to chicklit and publishers weekly and my mother. yay! books! *giddy*

Fruheads bond over all sorts of media... i mean, hell... 28% of fruhead conversation involves Mony Python and Doug Adams, know what I'm saying?

*jumps in with the English major posse*

I'm all for this idea! Of course, in the end it will just mean even more books on my "I really need to read this" list, but that's better than not having enough.
I like the idea of expanding it out to all cultural aspects too.
When we eventualy get some sort of forum/message board on here they can be topics on there too. (responding to polls in here has made me even more interested in getting those those, but now I'm completly off topic).

Lit. Studies majors are cooler! (Mostly because no one knows what that means...) O:) But yeah, I've been noticing my "books I absolutely need to read" pile has been diminishing now that I have time to read them, so I'm all for building it back up! *Grin. (And, of course, sharing my vast knowledge of recommendable books would be fun...yes, I am kidding, I'm not really that snotty. But whatever. Book list=good.)
Talcott Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
Well, in all technicality, I'm a creative writing major, but seeing as how I need to take a ton of lit. classes, and all of my classes start with "ENG", I think I'm close enough to an English major :)
betsy =) Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
don't forget me!!!! i was an english major too, but my concentration was in creative writing. i think a book section would be awesome because i'm always looking for good books. and i'd like to think it's all about me!
renita Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
And then there's me, Who's going for a degree in Linguistics, but the Linguistics department is part of which faculty... hmm. I do believe it's part of the English faculty.
So yah. I consider myself part of the English posse.
Of course if we want to get all elitist and shit here on FHDC, I guess that's possible, but do any of us really want that? I hope not.
And I'm guessing there's more than 'no one' who knows what a Lit. Studies major is, because then you would know naught of what you spake. And I'm also guessing that the department of the university that offers a degree in Lit Studies would know what it was, otherwise, well, how would they define the credentials?
Semantics! YAY!
Talcott Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
That's really cool!
When I took linguistics (just a general overview) this past spring, it all just made so much sense to me. It was the most interesting class I've taken in a long time
Plus, you get to learn all sorts of words that sound either really technical, or just really dirty (ya know, like the name for the sound the letter F makes ;)
What direction are you taking with linguistics anyways?

So what is a lit studies major?
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 6 months ago
We need a book pics section so that more people can learn the glory that is Jurgen.

or totally reject it like everyone but Renita.

Maybe I'll recommend calculus books instead.
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
Jurgen sucks, and Cabell couldn't write his way out of a paper bag. That's all.
betsy =) Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
straight up, carey! i couldn't get past chapter 5.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
Why do I like you again? Is anybody that cute? Well anybody but Maura?
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
Dude, not even Maura would be able to get thru Jurgen.

Does FHDC really exist?
