Summer is almost upon us, and that means it's time for some summer reading! This year, I thought it might be fun to do an informal/casual forum book club. Basically, over the course of the summer, those of us who are interested will read books that are Sailor Moon-related* and discuss them.

*This includes books that directly appear, are quoted, or are otherwise referenced in the manga and art books (including Naoko's liner notes), the anime, the live action series, and the musicals. Books that may not have been explicitly referenced but still undoubtedly served as an inspiration (e.g. Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping Beauty) are also fine, as are any books pertaining to topics relevant to the series (e.g. astronomy, tarot card readings, gemology, etc).

*This does not include the manga itself, nor any other official Sailor Moon publication.
