Restart and rename etc

I'm not sure how many people are still using LJ or still watching this community.
I thought that I would start posting again but with some changes. Posting a book title daily was a bit too much, so I thought that I would change the object and format of this community.
My idea is to post a title on a monthly basis but post the title/author of the book the previous month to give everyone a chance to read the title and then contribute in the comments.
This would make it more of a reading club but would hopefully encourage more participation from members.
Please post your comments about your feelings to this idea. If there are no comments, then I will probably abandon the community altogether!
As for the new name? It will depend what is available when I look for new names. Any suggestions for this would also be appreciated and considered...

Ha, surprised to see a post from this community.

If you do decide to reboot this comm and make it into a reading club, bookish is still fairly active, if you are looking for places to do promo for the comm reboot.

As far as names go, you could try themonthlybook (well, if it is available).

And I'd be up for participating, but I am sometimes in the mood for certain books, so if the pick matches my mood, I'd be up for it.

Glad to see this post. I really enjoyed his community though agreed a book a day was difficult. Maybe if you keep the old format rather than a reading group you could do it one a week or fortnight and invite comments.

Change can be good. Count me in for being a regular.

Maybe it would be worth opening up posting access to everyone in the community - and just inviting community members to post the book of the day (someone already posted today? save it for tomorrow! and please be courteous and only post max once a week)?

A suggested posting format in the group information would be really helpful if that was the community vibe.
