OK! Here goes. Just a quick note to remind folks that I'll be reading this both here and as part of Sci-Fi Month, so hopefully we can attract some new people. On that note, here's the schedule.

Week 1: Prologue to Chapter 13, Sunday 5th November, hosted by Tethyan Books
Week 2: Chapters 14 to 27, Sunday 12th November, hosted by The Illustrated Page
Week 3: Chapters 28 to 41, Sunday 19th November, hosted by Over The Effing Rainbow
Week 4: Chapter 42 to End, Sunday 26th November, hosted by There's Always Room For One More

You got it! Also, I was wondering - Allie, since you say you've already started reading, do you think you could take the first week?

May I do week 4?


message 5: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Certainly!


message 6: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I could probably do that, sure! I haven't finished reading the section yet, but I'll be finished by the end of the week.

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Awesome, thank you!


message 8: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments It's looking increasingly likely that I won't make this first week. Alas, the post office still hasn't received my copy.

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
Curses!

Don't worry about it; hopefully you can catch up? *Crosses fingers for your delivery getting its act together*


message 10: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments Here are some first week questions! I hope your copy comes soon :(.

message 11: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments 9, 10> Unfortunately, it still hasn't arrived and the post office is closed for the weekend. I'm hoping it will show up on Monday and Tuesday and I can get my week one post up by Friday.

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Okay so I got a copy and speed through Week One (my post goes up tomorrow) and somehow ended up reading Week Two also. Here's the questions!

...challenge accepted? ;) I just finished my week 1 post, and I may as well read week 2 as pick up a new book :D


message 17: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments Right now I'm struggling to keep myself from reading Week Three!

Okay, week 4 questions!

(view spoiler)

...as an aside: this is The End - for now - but book 7 comes out in a couple of weeks. How do you all feel about read-alonging (vs intentions to lay your paws on it ASAP and just read it)?

I'm happy to wait and read-along again, but would suggest we wait until at least January to give it time to arrive in libraries (and because Christmas tends to be a bit mad, whereas a January read-along is a nice pick me up :) ) What do you all think?


message 35: by Allison (new)

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I would be in favor of reading it together in January. I was actually thinking of suggesting that as well, because it might be kind of a challenge to juggle Christmas & family & travel & read-alonging in December.


message 36: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (coolcurry) | 162 comments I also think reading it in January would be a good idea.


message 37: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (deargeekplace) | 539 comments Mod
I'm up for doing another read along for it. January sounds best.

Allison (tethys) | 84 comments I'm going to be late due to Thanksgiving, still 2 chapters left to read. I'll have it up tomorrow!
