1. The Blades Library Book Club: Live and Let Die

    By David Winter on 2003-05-10

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

    Every two months a book is chosen by the club members to read. A thread is posted in the club forums listing locations on where you can find the novel. Discussions about the book will go on as the book is read and when it is finished. Another thread will be created so that club members can post their review and give a rating on Live & Let Die.

    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 Second Book:

    Concluding the vote for what book to read next, the club members have decided that Live & Let Die is to be the next book to be in their hands for the next two months. Live & Let Die was written in 1954, and is Fleming’s second Bond novel – continuing after the events in Casino Royale.
