Shitty Book Club

What is Shitty Book Club?

"Shitty Book Club" is a forum in which friends from around the world celebrate "terrible" literature. This can be anything from poorly written, whimsical absurdity, horrible racism, cringy displays of sex or horrible contrived plot.

Most of the time a book is "all of the above"

When is the next Shitty Book Club?

We don't have a fixed schedule. We rotate who chooses the next book each session and that person is responsible for scheduling a call. We usually have a video call for about and hour to review each book. The video call is organised on Google Hangouts.

Blood Meridian
Ready Player Two
Ernest Cline

Days after winning OASIS founder James Halliday’s contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything.

Hidden within Halliday’s vaults, waiting for his heir to find, lies a technological advancement that will once again change the world and make the OASIS a thousand times more wondrous—and addictive—than even Wade dreamed possible.

With it comes a new riddle, and a new quest—a last Easter egg from Halliday, hinting at a mysterious prize.

And an unexpected, impossibly powerful, and dangerous new rival awaits, one who’ll kill millions to get what he wants.

Wade’s life and the future of the OASIS are again at stake, but this time the fate of humanity also hangs in the balance.

Lovingly nostalgic and wildly original as only Ernest Cline could conceive it, Ready Player Two takes us on another imaginative, fun, action-packed adventure through his beloved virtual universe, and jolts us thrillingly into the future once again.
