Oh yeah love that, it’d end up as kind of a round robin style thing maybe with a zine or microsite at the end of it…could be a good way to fairly quickly get a baseline of collective knowledge on some kind of really niche topic where not much publicly available online collected stuff exists.
Antibook club would be a fun thing to explore for sure! Kind of along these lines I’ve hosted a couple “antilibrary show and tell” events, where everyone brings a few of their top unread books and talks about them, but could be interesting to do a similar thing w/ more of a deep dive on one specific book.
Tiago Forte actually did something like this a while back, there are a few posts about it on his blog but most are paywalled. This one’s public though:
Basically sounds like each person reads one book + summarizes for the others, so not quite the same thing (and I’m not super into the progressive summarization thing, feels somewhat overdetermined) but a cool experiment to see!
