Manda (bookwenchmanda) | 1094 comments You're off to a great start! I'm reading What It? also. It looks like it will be a fun read.

Peter | 0 comments Looking good so far. It seems there a few of us reading What If?. I'm looking forward to Ella Minnow Pea. It's actually one of the books I'm most looking forward to most, especially once I figured out the title is part of the alphabet spelled phonetically!
