The Overthinking It Book Club
The Overthinking It Book Club began in 2013 with a six-week discussion of Ender’s Game. For 2014, we’re reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five, with weekly podcasts featuring a rotating panel of Overthinkers discussing the book and group discussion in the Overthinking It Forums. You’ll get the most out of the club if you read these sections by these dates:
- Week 1 (July 23, 2014): Chapters 1 and 2
- Week 2 (July 30, 2014): Chapters 3 and 4
- Week 3 (August 6, 2014): Chapter 5
- Week 4 (August 13, 2014): Chapters 6, 7, 8
- Week 5 (August 20, 2014): Chapters 9 and 10
- Week 6 (August 27, 2014): The film adaptation
