Manybooks | 147 comments I was maybe wondering if we could make this a two months read. June is horribly busy for me, and while I really want to read this book, I am not sure that I will be able to get to it by the end of the month.

Oh yeah we could do that! Actually, you are always welcome to go back to discuss this in July if you wish. There's no time limit in discussing these monthly reads since there's so much to read in this group and we are just suggesting different books every month just to have a book for everybody to read!

I actually know that,mbut I wonder if having monthly reads of longer books might be intimidating for some.

Oh yeah! I've actually been thinking about doing two month reads for books that are very long and if trying to read a long book in one month is too intimidating for some, then we could set it up as two months.
