Question for Stacked readers: If the Mercantile Library were to set up a police procedural group to tackle a crime novel a month, meeting in the director’s shabby office or upstairs in the more comfortable lecture hall to gabble about what made the month’s book readable or not readable or better than last month’s or not or worthy of emulating, would anyone sign up? What if it were a two year project? One year reading and analyzing crime. One year constructing a group crime novel which could be, if it got written to where it was readable, either Kindled (something that anyone can do with any manuscript) so everyone would have a copy, or it could just be made into a handy generic e-book available on the Library’s website. Would that be fun? Or too much like work? You would have to join the Library to apply the police procedure. No freeloading.
