Every once in a while, somebody will come around and ask for some reading suggestions about the banjo, or old-time music in general (aka I received a couple of great recommendations here for books about old-time fiddling in different parts of North America). Because we are a loving family, this would include books about bluegrass history, plectrum, tenor banjo, the fiddle, dulcimer etc etc, you name it.

It can be a new release, a recent release, and older release, an out of print release etc.

I like to follow these threads, because I myself am always looking for something new to read. I thought that it might be interesting to start a book of the month type thread. Basically the premise would be pretty easy. A member selects a book and gives a few reasons why he enjoys it.

Afterwards, we all can talk about it, or not.

I'm just throwing this idea out into the world.. I don't even know how to proceed after this.

Sounds like a good idea.

How about a few suggestions on what to read up on.

I’m always looking for a good read.

I thought the point of book clubs was to gather together to drink wine once in a while.wink

I just got this one today. I’ll post my book report when I’m done. (I only read a few pages per day, usually)
