Here are my thoughts to start the ball rolling:
Our bookclub runs almost completely online. Everyone picks a book/film/topic - whatever they want, within reason - for each month (we compile a list) and that person is responsible for managing the blog that month and by that I mean, leading the discussion, posting questions etc.
If everyone is happy with that I'll put a second post up for suggestions of books/films/topics.
The catchup would be an added bonus and that way people who find it difficult to get to after work things can still participate. It also means people who are having a busy month can opt out by simply not participating. Maybe it could be a set night eg. first Tuesday of the month or something similar.
I also think it's important to stress, that if you don't like something, don't finish it, but post your reasons. Sometimes it's just as interesting to hear why someone didn't like something or couldn't get into it.
