Educational Winter Pursuits: Book Club Anyone?

I have been thinking about the time I spend on non-productive and non-education-related activities in the last few weeks. With football season starting up and winter closing in, I plan to be inside more and more in the coming months. 

Thinking about the hours of darkness looming ahead, I wonder if a book club may be in order. If you are interested, please comment below or contact me otherwise. I would like to read Three Cups of Tea first, a recommendation from a respected colleague. 
Here is the link if you choose to join me. I will blog as I read and share thoughts on this blog's "comments" section.
