    By Evan Willnow on 2003-03-15

    Welcome to The Blades Library Book Clubthe place for quality discussions of the books of James Bond!

    Every two months a book will be chosen for the club members to read. Once the book is chosen, a thread will be posted listing locations where the novel (or short story collection) can be found. Discussions about the book will go on as the book is read and when it is finished. A separate forum thread will be created for members to post their review and rating of the current book.

    All fans of the Literary Bond are eligible for membership. All you need to do to sign up is register for the CBn Forums and then post your name in the sign up thread.

    The Book Club’s First Book:*

    In honour of the fiftieth anniversary of the book, the first book chosen for The Blades Club Book Club is:

    Casino Royale

    *Also being the first James Bond novel it’s as good of a place to start as any.

    Obtaining The Book:

    Casino Royale is currently being republished so it should not be too difficult for members to find. Most local book stores in the UK and US should either have it on their shelves or be able to special order it. Ordering online should also be quite easy. Casino Royale can be ordered online from the following sources:
