The book loving gang in our Discord-channel is setting out on a book club journey!
We'll start with a two week long short-story assignment that ends on a jolly google-hangouts party where we can chat about the story and show our appreciation for all things books.
If you'd like to partake in this craziness, join us in the Book of Fates Discord-channel. But be warned, it's not for the faint of heart.
That said, choosing which story to read is a responsibility one shouldn't take on lightly, and so we've left the responsibility to you, our dear Fates. All the books on the list are in public domain and hence free to read online.
