I can do week 2 and/or 3!


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I can take one of the remaining three weeks. There's the chance I might be late with my questions though -- the semester's resumed and I'm a lot busier.


message 4: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments The read-along has caught up to where I am in the series, and I want to join now if you don't mind a newcomer hopping in!

I've got the next few on audiobook, so I'll try to keep up. If I don't fall behind, I would also be able to host a week if needed.

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
Yay, Allie! :D

OK, I've given each of us a week to host. Let me know if it works for you!


message 9: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Sorry for the newbie question, but... how are the discussion questions distributed?


message 10: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
We post them here, under a spoiler tag. (When we finally get around to them, she said, side-eyeing herself...)

I've also updated the schedule, just to keep anyone (me) from getting confused. ;)

Here's my Week 1 post: http://overtheeffingrainbow.co.uk/201...

I'm sorry - I'm think I'm going to have to duck out of the read-along. With everything going on I'm yet to start Cibola (or read anything else). I will try to play catch up, but I need to resign my hosting duties this week.


message 17: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Take care of yourself Imyril. *hugs*


message 18: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
No problem! *More hugs*

Er. Sarah/Allie: Do either of you think you could manage taking on a second hosting week?


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I can take it on. I just finished reading the section and will try to have the questions posted in a timely manner.


message 20: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
Awesomesauce, thank you!


message 21: by imyril (new)

imyril | 310 comments Mod
Thank you!


message 22: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments No problem ya'll!

Here's my questions for the week:

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Here's my week two as well! https://tethyanbooks.blogspot.com/201...


message 27: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments And here's my questions for week three -

(view spoiler)

Uh, no promises that I won't end up reading through the end of the book this week...


message 28: by imyril (new)

imyril | 310 comments Mod
Ahem, my rather late week one: https://onemore.org/2017/09/17/cibola...

...charging on to week 2 in vague hope of getting that up by Friday and week 3 by next Sunday :) (aaaah, holiday at last!)

Week 2: https://onemore.org/2017/09/21/cibola...

I may be quibbling about enjoyment but I'm still finding it hard to put down. Now can Murtry accidentally fall down a hole or get eaten by the protomolecule please?

Saaaaaame.

Also my whole week's been up in the air so today has been about settling down again. Thus, my Week 3 post will go up tomorrow.


message 32: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Here's my week 3! https://tethyanbooks.blogspot.com/201...

I am barely keeping up right now, so I'm not going to have week 4 questions by tomorrow. I will put them here as early as possible during this coming week, though!


message 33: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
Not a problem! ;)

And my week 3: https://onemore.org/2017/09/27/cibola...

And wheeeeeee! I've finished the book :)

I am pegging this as my least favourite in the series I'm afraid, but it hasn't put me off reading Book 5 (although if it doesn't deliver on the promise of the final chapter of Cibola Burn I will be miffed)


message 36: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I liked seeing an alien planet, but I wasn't a huge fan of any of the POV characters. And yes, I'm hoping the next book delivers too!


message 37: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I'm two chapters from the end. Questions will come later today :). Not my favorite of the series either, but so far I'm still interested to see what comes next. Hopefully, the next one will have Bobbie or Avasarala as a POV character.


message 38: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
We all seem to be of one mind on this - it wasn't my favourite so far either, but I'm more than willing to stick it out! Bring on the next one.


message 39: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Here are the final week's questions! Please forgive any misspelled names below, audiobook is rough for that.

My apologies once again for not being reliable. I have my last 3 weeks up now.

Week 2: http://dabofdarkness.com/2017/09/29/c...
Week 3: http://dabofdarkness.com/2017/09/29/c...
Week 4: http://dabofdarkness.com/2017/09/29/c...

message 43: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Do we want to jump straight into the next book or give everyone a week for breathing room?


message 44: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
I'm good with whatever you guys want to do.


message 45: by Susan (new)

Susan (nrlymrtl) | 143 comments Mod
I have the next book ready to go, so whatever works for all of you.


message 46: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I've got the next book so can start, but I've also accidentally scheduled an author interview for Friday. I can always double post if need be, but I wouldn't be adverse to a week's break.


message 47: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 549 comments Mod
OK, I've checked the calendar against my November plans, since I'm all about Sci-Fi Month again this year, and I was hoping to dedicate that month to Babylon's Ashes so I could include a read along in my lineup... Would switching the posting day, say to the weekends, be all right?


message 48: by Susan (new)

Susan (nrlymrtl) | 143 comments Mod
Fine with me


message 49: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments That works for me too.


message 50: by imyril (new)

imyril | 310 comments Mod
I'm happy to run straight along - can we make it Sunday rather than Saturday if we're moving day?

I've just bought Nemesis, so I'm good to go :)
