The Book Group Buzz Blog (also permanently listed in the right hand column), had this interesting post on "10 Ways to Lighten it up for Summer."
As I mentioned in my May book discussion report, sometimes, book discussion books can be heavy and depressing, this article enumerates many ways to change things up if your group is feeling overwhelmed. Some listed which we have done here at BPL include moving the location or doing a summer theme. We also always read a classic in December when people are also pressed for time and watch the movie version too. I have also always wanted to spread a big book out over 2 months.
This list is full of great ideas to lighten up any group. I am sure you can find something that will work for your group.
