First, I wanted to express my deepest appreciation to Linds and Silke for running this survey and for everyone who voiced an opinion. Really, thank you.
It is worth trying the book club again, and we have some idea about how to run it so it’s as flexible as possible. This includes doing monthly themes, rather than just a specific book, and also having a rotating person who runs the discussion each month.

Has there been any thought to using Discord for this? I’ve participated in a couple of book clubs recently and I feel like they flow a bit better when you can jot down a sentence as you read a particular chapter and engage in casual discussion in a way that I’m not entirely sure a forum-based system allows.
Indeed we have! If the new set-up of our Discord channels allows for it, it was a part of the re-jigging process to get a book-club channel added. Though I still think it’s very important that activities such as the book club largely take place on the boards because we do have members who are not on Discord and I never want to go out of our way to exclude them from participating. I do also think that having a running thread per book club selection would allow for that casual commentary you speak of.
