I haven’t yet seen the show “Lost” even though everyone and their grandmother have recommended it to me. I’ll probably get some hate mail from raving “Lost” fans if I don’t say I’ll get around to it eventually. Just like “The Godfather” movies. *ducks*
I’m always interested when I find people discussing content in places I didn’t expect. I’m sure Steven Johnson would argue that “Lost” is just like a huge novel on screen, so it is natural for fans of it to also enjoy books.
What also interests me is how much richer the discussions could be if a librarian added some value to it, either guiding the discussions online or planning physical world discussions. At the very least we can use the list of books from the show to make a nice book display to go along with the DVDs.
