Like literature book clubs you mean? Sorry, I can't help, but I find your thinking interesting. And if yes, why not on other physics subjects? Isn't Srendnicki who suggests sth similar for his QFT book?

In USA colleges, we used to call them "study groups" and they did flourish. Hopefully, they still do.
