Post New thread format for The Children of Hurin
on: July 05, 2007 03:19
Unlike the other books the Book Club has studied, We'd like to have an open forum for this book. The staff will still post some chapter questions, Masters of Mythology topics, Illustrations, and character analysis topics, but members should feel freee to start there own threads on topics they'd like to discuss, in the chapter currently under discussion, or any previous chapter.
This is a new book and the Book Forum staff ( especially me ) is not necessarily expert in organizing literature studies, so things should go better and be a lot more interesting if members feel free to add their own discussion topics or questions. All we'd ask is that any new thread be relevant to The Children of Hurin.

Good Idea PB! We'll all need to be careful not to get bogged down or wander off topic, though. If things move towards general discussion (Orcs, mortality etc) I'll look for a link to a Books Forum thread.

It shouldn't be too difficult if we remember to relate our comments to Hurin/Turin and their story. *rubs hands* I can hardly wait.

I'm officially pumped! And the even better news is that my classes will be over on July 20th, so I'll have infinite amounts of time to devote to reading... let's go!

I'll post a quote for each chapter, but anyone with an interesting quote they'd like to discuss should also feel free to post it iin a new thread.
