Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Day 2: Chapter 3 & 4

Chapter 3:

I feel like I am walking down memory lane, even though my memory is terrible! LOL

There are so many mentions of historical events that happened when I was alive and this book has been jogging my memory: (view spoiler)

Day 1: Chapter 1 & 2


I agree with all your spoilers Vicki!!

1958(view spoiler)

Al(view spoiler)

Yellow Card(view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'll definitely finish chapters 5 & 6 today, just not sure how early/late it'll be.

@Trisha, I wondered the same thing about the yellow card guy.
And the time jump is strange to me, but I am not very familiar with time travel or jumps. It is weird to me that no matter how long they stay in 1958, it's only 2 minutes when they return. LOL

Trisha | 31447 comments YAY!!!! We can do it!!


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Most definitely! I was really into it and enjoying it! I'll have to go back and read my notes and others' posts here so I can remember more. LOL But I was 30% finished. Do you want to stick with the old reading schedule we had or start anew? How shall we proceed?


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I just looked and my last post was for ch. 8 but I finished reading ch. 9 which is actually 28% finished. I'll read ch. 10 today and then we can decide how we plan to read it.

How far did you get into it?

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments LOL Absolutely no worries. You know me and I am FAR behind on every book!


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Can we possibly get back to this one? I already had 30% read and I was really into it. If you can't join me, I think I'll finish alone. Just let me know when/if you want to continue it.

Trisha | 31447 comments YES!!! YES YES YES!

Caron (diminishingthoughts) | 1053 comments I've decided to pause this book for the time being. I'll probably only pick it up again in the new year. Enjoy your reading! :D

we'll miss you! but I totally understand :)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Caron, I understand too. I recently dropped a couple reads too.

Trisha, Monday is good. :)

Trisha | 31447 comments alright, we can DO this Vicki! lol

:) all updated


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments YAY! I am excited to get back to this one!! And maybe we can finish it before 2016 ends! LOL

I'll review my own posts to refresh my memory and then I'll start with the chapter I ended with, so I'll begin with Ch. 9 which is Day 5. Is that all right? Or I can wait for you to catch up and finish Ch. 8 and then we can start 9 together. Do you have a preference?


message 31: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 31447 comments Day 5 works
I don't remember how far I was so I'll probably just skim/re-read and then catch up :)
