Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I'm good with either May or June, I just might be running behind the first week. My exams finish that week, and I've got pack up my dorm room.

If we do end up doing May, I could take either Week 3 or Week 4.

I'm interested in participating but not up for hosting. I read it years ago and feel it is time for a reread.

Update: I suspect June may actually work better for me, as it will give me time to clear some of the currently-reading slate that somehow *cough* exploded over the last couple of days... Is that all right with everybody?


message 5: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I'm fine with moving it to June.

I might join you if it's June. April steamrollered me and I need May to reinflate ;)


message 7: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Yeah, I do think June works better at this point, heh! OK, I will redo the schedule.

Original post updated! Still looking for co-hosts...

M (misforawesome) | 2 comments co-hosts?


message 10: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I can take a week! I have no preferences regarding which one.

Someone to come up and post a few (4-6, usually) questions for other participants to blog their answers to, re: that week's chapters.

Yay! I'll put you in for week 2.

I am, but I realise we still need hosts for the last two weeks. Would you be OK with taking another one if need be?


message 14: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Sure thing!


message 15: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Excellent! Thanks.

I can host one of the last two weeks. I'll probably be late this week as I forgot and am juggling some other commitments, but I will catch up :)


message 17: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Yay, thank you! I've given you week 3.

Just a heads up in general - it may be Thursday before I get the questions posted, since that's my day off this week and life is a little hectic at the moment. But if so they'll go up as early as possible!

OK! Here's the first round of questions.

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Thanks Lisa! I can try and knock up a banner in Photoshop this evening.

Carina Larsson | 2 comments Hi, I'm new to the group. Just joined a minute ago and saw this thread. This is a book my son's been talking about and I thought it would be fun to try it out this way. Mind if I tag along? He happened to have a copy in his book case.

Welcome Carina! I think you will enjoy reading along with us. Do you have a blog? Of course you can always post your answers to the discussion questions here, if that works best for you.

And here is the link to my responses to the question:

Welcome! And absolutely. The more, the merrier!

Carina Larsson | 2 comments Thanks for the welcome!
No, I'm afraid I don't have a blogg. And I've never before done a readalong. Or fortsatt mattor discussed books I've read in this way.
This type of book is new to me, as I've not really read SF before, and I'm playing catch-up here, having started the book last night.
This far I can only really comment on the prologue. It sets a very dark and unforgiving tone, with a definitely promising end. Parts of it reminded me of the water-preserving costums of Dune.

My week 1 post is belatedly up!

I'm getting sucked in by the politics and the mystery.


message 30: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I'll have the questions for week two up later today -- sorry for the delay!


message 31: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments And here's the questions!

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Here's Week Four questions!

(view spoiler)

What's everyone's thoughts on the schedule for book two? I'm game, but I still need to get a hold of the book.


message 41: by imyril (new)

imyril | 307 comments Mod
Same here :) I'm probably good to roll straight over but wouldn't say no to a 1-2 week gap between books either


message 42: by Susan (new)

Susan (nrlymrtl) | 143 comments Mod
My husband loves this series so we already have the next book. I'm good to go when you all are. I've really enjoyed discussing Book 1.


message 43: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Waiting a week or two works for me, if necessary. Once I have a chapter breakdown for book 2 I'll post it, but we can at least hold off until the start of July?

message 45: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I can start in the first week of July as long as I'm not hosting that week. I don't want to worry about impacting anyone else if I have trouble getting a copy.

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
(Also I noticed you referred to war between Earth and the Moon - it was Earth and Mars, surely?)


message 47: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Oh no! Yes, I'll go back and fix that.
