Welcome, nerds and geeks alike!
The Doomed Readers' Guild Without A Cool Acronym (hereafter TDRGWACA), taught by the awesome and epic Dillon Withers (aka Squid), Ryan (aka Melkor), and Hannah Barry (aka The Mysterious Cat Of Doom), is a book club, intended more or less for modern books.
We will be voting on what to read a few weeks in, once we've finished the books that WE ABSOLUTELY MUST READ *THUNDER*, so scribble down a list of your favourite books (just make sure you can read your own handwriting)!
TDRGWACA is generally targeted toward 10 - 1000, but anyone older or younger who feels they can handle it is welcome to attend! The pace is about 200 pages a week -- or 40 pages per day, not counting the day we meet or Sunday -- but that's just kind of a guesstimation number and we can always adjust. (I know, I know, I know -- that's a lot. But with thanks to Google for average teen reading rates, average word count per page, and a squick of calculating, it's about an hour of reading a day, Sunday and Saturday aside. Just a heads-up.)
We will have a set list of books we definitely want to read, and will vote on the rest later in the school year. Suggestions for the set list are always welcome. The following is still in progress and is subject to change, at least until the course starts:
- How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell (The books came first, THEN the movie. We're only reading book 1 in this course.)
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (See afterthought for How To Train Your Dragon)
- The Ruins of Gorlan (Book 1 in The Ranger's Apprentice) by John A. Flanagan
- Wee Free Men by (*mournful sniffle*) Sir Terry Prachett
- The Giver by Lois Lowry
- A Hero's Guide To Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
- Magyk by Angie Sage
- Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede
- Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
- Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley


That is all.
