Ĉu vi interesiĝas pri libro-klubo? (Are you interested in a book club?)

Mi rimarkis ke oni starigis libro-klubon por lernantoj de la itala. Kiu volas partopreni en tia klubo por lernantoj de Esperanto? Ni legus po unu ĉapitro dum semajno (aŭ dum pli longa tempo, laŭ la longeco/malfacileco de la ĉapitroj).

I noticed that someone has set up a book club for people learning Italian. Who wants to be part of such a group for Esperanto? We'd read a chapter a week (or longer, depending on the length and difficulty of the chapters).

Well, my Esperanto isn't good enough yet. But basically I'd be interested. Mi volas legi Esperantajn librojn. How does a book club work on Duolingo, would you copy a chapter of a book here with some notes on vocabulary and grammar?

That would be an interesting idea. If carbsrule (or salivanto or someone) were to do that, I would totally participate.

Sounds interesting, though I'm not sure I'd be confident enough right at this moment. Would depend on how difficult the book was

Yeah, that sounds fun! I ran a book club for Marvirinstrato on here back in October, so it might be fun to do a new one.

Marvirinstrato would be a great choice! I have a copy but haven't had a chance to read any yet. I'm also surprised I missed that.

Too bad I missed that. I'd be up for a repeat.

Maybe there could be an Esperanto short-story club?

I am almost done with my tree, so yes, interested in doing something useful with what I have learned so far.

I've been thinking of reading La Verda Koro or Marvirinstrato. Do you have any particular books in mind?

I'm still learning Esperanto, but I am very much interested in this idea and trying to read in Esperanto with what I do know. Thank you for the suggestion.

Almost certainly... depending on the book

I just finished "La Hobito" (https://www.amazon.com/Hobito-Tien-kaj-Reen-Esperanto/dp/1782011099) and I particularly enjoyed it. I "cheated" a bit and would "check" my work by reading along in the English version too. That and I'd already read it a few times before, so I knew it pretty well.

But what was really useful is each chapter in "The Hobbit" is broken down into 1-3 page blocks, wonderful for reading to a child. Or for learning a new language :).

I don't know if it would actually be suitable for an online book club, but I enjoyed the experience of reading it in Esperanto.

I'd be interested but I don't know where I'd gain access to such books, as well as the time to read them as I am also trying to get into reading more in English. On a slightly unrelated note, does anyone know where I can gain access to Esperanto poetry (I've heard that a lot of esperanto poetry is erotic, so please none of that, lol)

How about "Printempo en la Aŭtuno" by Julio Baghy? It's a short story (65 pages in the edition I have), originally published in 1931 by one of Esperanto's leading early writers. I suggest starting in the November Esperanto Sumoo; that will give everyone plenty of time to get a physical copy if they want to, e.g. from the UEA

I haven't found a PDF but have found two HTML versions:
