Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Jul 17, 2012, 10:17 AM

I would like to run for host of this group, in order to make it a more vibrant part of DU.

What should be my favorite group on DU is rather inactive, and that's just disastrous in my eyes. I want to advertise this group around a bit and have reading goals (read 50-100 books a year?) and a book club with one book a month. I also hope to help people who want to know about certain books or topics. 

What makes me qualified: I have unlimited time on my hands, and I live by a library and I own a large (mostly non-fiction) personal library.   I use a lot of my time to read non-fiction, you could practically call me a fanatic. I also read eclectic topics. From Galileo to Sesame Street, Nixon to the Beatles. You name the book and I can gain access to it. I've also kept track of every book I've read since I was 16, which comes in handy sometimes. I hope this group will kick off. Peace.

2. That's an older picture too.

I've bought some books since then. Then again, I also got rid of two Ron Paul books I didn't know we had. (Something we got for free when we were clearing out a deceased friends house.) Bleh.

5. Well, it went to goodwill.

More likely that some poor person will soon be spouting about the gold standard. Oh well.

7. As far as the amount of books?

Trust me on this, the library I live by, more than makes up for that. It's huge!

It's so big, I can ask for books on AIM messenger if I'm too lazy to walk.

8. What a great collection, Neoma.

I think I've mentioned to you that I had to give up most of my books ...... a few times. It's always hard! You'd be a fantastic host for this group and I happily vote for you also.

10. I voted again, because my first vote disappeared.

How strange. Has anyone else noticed their vote not there anymore?
