Reddit Book Club’s New Selection: The Water Knife

By Dianna Dilworth 

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi is Reddit’s book club selection for the next month.

The science fiction novel is set in the American Southwest at a time in which water is worth more than gold. Bacigalupi will do an AMA on Reddit throughout the month. Readers can discuss the text at  /r/books. Here is more about how to use the discussion group:

If you post something that might be a spoiler please cover it! Format your text like this: [Spoilers about XYZ](#s “Spoiler content here”) <– this way spoilers are hidden unless clicked on. We will have discussion threads later that will allow spoilers but for right now I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone. As we create discussion threads I’ll add links to them to this post. Check back here for updates!

Reddit’s book club launched last year with a book every two months, but due to popular demand, the site is now reading a book a month.
