Kristi (kristicoleman) What do we want to use as our start date??


message 3: by Kim (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kim (whatkimreads) I can start on Monday, or any day after that of course. :)

Oh and are we just starting with the first story and go on like that, or?


message 4: by Mbondare (new) - added it

Mbondare I'm pretty open about it, however, I would prefer a week from now or something like that since I have a big presentation for school due on Thursday. However, we can start earlier and I can just catch up after the presentation.

Absolutely no problem for me! I'm still in school too, so I'm on your side haha ;)

Kristi (kristicoleman) ok, so let's start on the 5th. That will give me a chance to get the schedule for the next group read written for the group I moderate. Good luck on your presentation Mbondare!

Kim (whatkimreads) Oh I was browsing through and I remember now that I've read the second one "The Cloak" by Nikolai Gogol for school last year. (Totally forgot about it!) I quite enjoyed it, so I'm feeling a bit more optimistic now. Can't wait to start.

MK (wisny) | 2993 comments Hi ladies :)

We're opening a new folder section for Book Discussions for books that haven't been group reads (and so, are not on our group bookshelf).

I moved your thread here, to start off populating the folder. I hope that's okay! :)
