message 24: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Ekens (thebookkisser) | 551 comments Thank you! :)


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

Hey I will join this thread! I have had this book for a while and just have never gotten around to reading it so I will join! How many pages or chapters are you planning on reading a day?


message 26: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Ekens (thebookkisser) | 551 comments It has 88 chapters all in all I think. How about we do twenty chapters a day? So we'd be finished after 4-5 days. Is it doable or is it too slow for you guys?


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

No that is definitely doable for me. So in a page sense, since there are over 500 pages, I guess we can read around 150 pages a day then? Sounds good to me.


message 28: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Ekens (thebookkisser) | 551 comments Okay great! I'll start reading now. Prabhleen, let us know if you're okay with it.


message 29: by Prabhleen (new)

Prabhleen Singh (prabs) | 13 comments I am perfectly fine with this!....so finally we can get down to reading this!


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

So I already started reading last night because I couldn't help myself and I am really liking it so far. Has anyone else started reading yet?


message 31: by Prabhleen (new)

Prabhleen Singh (prabs) | 13 comments Yup and it sure is interesting!


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

How far into it are you?? I am almost 200 pages in. It is really interesting.


message 33: by Katy (new)

Katy | 361 comments I'm really liking this book so far :)


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

I am open to discussing what we have read so far. Anyone else?


message 35: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Ekens (thebookkisser) | 551 comments Tori! You've finished it? Still at chapter 25 >.< Oh I'm too slow. :3 How'd you like it?
