Blog for book club

So here is the space for a reading group!
Since many of us are seperated by hundreds of miles, an online book club seems like a good way to stay connected and engaged with one another beyond the occasional phone call or email.  There is no doubt that in our time together we have created strong community, and It bothers the hell out of me to think of those relationships fading away.  A book club is a simple way that I feel can help keep us together.
So a few of us have been talking about this to one another, so now lets figure it out.  I feel like (at least to start) just using the blog/email to go about doing this.  Thoughts? Other ideas?
We could also make a list on here of readings that folks would like to discuss that we can all add to. 
Should we do a reading weekly? bi-weekly?
Do we want to do articles?  Longer readings?
Lets make this happen.
