Bentley | 25177 comments For those you who are reading leisurely, please be advised that all non spoiler weekly threads are up. Please make sure to select View All and you will be able to find the appropriate threads to post on.

Be advised that the next spotlighted discussion will be kicked off on December 4th so you have about a month to catch up and find the threads in this specific location.

I will advise you where the threads will be housed when we start the next discussion so that you will be able to continue to post there. There is no rush but we do move the threads for each book to make way for upcoming book selections.

Mary Ellen | 139 comments Thanks, Bentley! I really appreciate being able to access the discussion after the official period is over. (And I'm glad to have Elizabeth as "partner in crime :) with me!)

Bentley | 25177 comments Just wanted you to know that it was still open for all of you. I am sure that Elizabeth and Vince will keep you company (lol).


Elizabeth S (esorenson) | 2063 comments We're kinda hanging together, aren't we, Mary Ellen and Vince. I've been surprised that even though my pace is rather random, we've still been able to have some good discussion about some parts of the book.

Bentley | 25177 comments I think you are all sashaying though the book at a more leisurely pace which is fine. Good discussions are fine no matter when or how they come; so all is good.

Bentley | 25177 comments Folks, look in the Art - Architecture - Culture folder for the threads. Please feel free to continue on your journey reading the book and we will always respond.

Make sure to click on the folder topic area and scroll down (there also are multiple pages of threads) - so you can see all of the discussion threads in the folder - they are added in the bottom of the folder:

Becky (httpsbeckylindrooswordpresscom) | 1219 comments Question - where can I locate this "view all" link? I've looked and looked on many, many pages.

Bentley | 25177 comments Good point Becky and thank you for pointing that out to me (Goodreads changed the view all area). I have tried to explain it differently above but if you cannot find the discussions let me know.


Becky (httpsbeckylindrooswordpresscom) | 1219 comments Is it the exclamation point at the very top? When I click that I see all the recent posts - not threads - but that's all I see. It's quite helpful. Is that what you are talking about?


Becky (httpsbeckylindrooswordpresscom) | 1219 comments How about "discussions" in the History Club box? That's a good link to the threads.
