Group Re-Read
« on: July 25, 2008, 02:15:54 PM »

*EDIT 7/13/2010*

Alright guys, we have our own sub-forum! Welcome to the Group Re-Read section of the Animorphs Board of RAF! We are rotating through the books in chronological order here. Approximately every 1-2 weeks I will post the next book summary and a list of questions that I created while reading. You will then have the opportunity to discuss, answer my questions, pose your own, discuss geeky science tech involved in the book, etc. Currently we are nearing the end of our first rotation and will begin a new one shortly.

Please just remember that normal forum rules apply! Respect one another and, as always, keep it seal-appropriate!


*END EDIT*

So the Animorphs LJ community and the Animorphs Fanfic Lounge are both in the middle of a re-read of the series. It's pretty simple. You read a book a week, someone posts a few guiding discussion questions, then you discuss that particular book in depth. I've been running the one on AFFL and we're up to week 11. Since we have the e-books available and a much larger member base I was wondering if there would be any interest in doing it here. I could moderate it, post the discussion questions, etc. which means all you would have to do would be to read the book and discuss.

If you want to do it the only question I have is what order you would want to read the books. LJ is doing it in order of publication, AFFL is doing it chronologically ignoring the frame stories (so the first book would be the Ellimist Chronicles).


Let me know if you're interested!!

I think that's a great idea :) I'd love to reread the books and have discussions on them.

Oh and the order doesn't matter too much, though I'd prefer the publication order.

Sounds interesting, and I'd love to participate, but I have a hard enough time trying to find moments to read the books I'm interested now. :(

I'd love to, though I don't quite understand the second part about discussing.

I'd love to, though I don't quite understand the second part about discussing.

Basically what would happen is I would post a bunch of questions I came up with while reading the book. Thn you could either answer those or come up with your own to ask people. It's just a way to get conversation started. :)


Alright, so I'm all for going in the order of publication, if that's okay with everyone? I tend to post discussions on the weekend, so I can post the first one either tomorrow or next Saturday, whatever is best for you.


Also, in order to keep things "neat" and easy to find if you want to go back to a book and discuss some more I'm going to post a new topic for each book. The topic will be clearly labeled "Group Re-read Week One: The Invasion" or something like that. My only worry is that might clutter up the Animorphs Chat section once we get to book 50 or so, lol.

O/T: Thanks Esplin!

Maybe Richard can create a new board for this? a possibility.

Truth's Hirac-Delest forum has a publication order for people who don't know (like me). I can go ahead and start reading already...but I never have any questions no matter how many times I re-read it...well you know what they say. the 1305th time is the charm (;D)

You know what we could do? Make a dedicated forum, D's forum is still up, we could use that.

I'd love it if we did that, but I'd certainly have to be e-book only -- my collection is in storage.

Well, this sounds like a fantastic idea!
If you are not in my avatar, and would like to be, or if you changed your name and avatar and would like me to update it, PM me. I cannot add or change anyone at the moment as I lost the file I use for this, but if people still want in, I'll work on it.
