Ashley (icecheeseplease) I'm looking forward to this one, starting it today!


Emma (infinitejest88) Thought I'd give this group read thing a whirl. I've always wanted to join a book club but I could never find one that read the things I wanted to. Unfortunately missed out on last month but I've just picked up my copy of The Lies of Locke Lamora! I never read fantasy books so I hope it's good! :)

I'm so glad to hear this! Also keep in mind that if the monthly group read isn't to your taste some months feel free to start up a book support read.

I look forward to hearing from you!


David Ranney (davidranney) I have begun reading, as well. As expected, I have taken to the book immediately.

So Annie, feel free to make the Part 1 discussion thread so I can inundate you all again with my thoughts and observations.

Shannon | 5 comments Oh shoot, I just realized the book was picked. I'll have to pick it up and get caught up on the reading. Sounds like an interesting pick!


Annamaria Herrera | 2 comments I am new here and new to the book club thing, but I have enjoyed lurking r/books for a few months now. I just bought the book for Kindle so I can catch up. I am looking forward to the discussion.
