Joanne, Dawn Michelle, and I will be reading Ready Player One starting on 3/25! This will be my third time enjoying the book but my first time reading it! I've listened to the audiobook twice! :)

I have a copy and I’m set to go, so excited for the 25th. I will be on holidays and not sure about wifi but don’t worry I will be reading it.

The audiobook is AMAZING, Dawn Michelle!!! Wil Wheaton! *heart eyes* I've listened to the audiobook twice and picked up the paperback at a library book sale last summer.

HE is the reason I knew I had to listen to this book regardless. I totally and completely ♥ him too.

I just finished listening to Redshirts and it was hilarious. Could only be narrated by Wil Wheaton!

What was that about? Was it worth it [minus the Wil ♥ Wheaton angle?]. I saw that he was narrating it and actually snorted out loud at the title, but I didn't look at what its about. :-)

Overseas. I am so very envious. I hope you are going someplace awesome.

Definitely worth reading, because you already "get" the title! ;) I loved it! But the audiobook is a must. The first like 25% is a little weird but then you understand why later on and then it gets amazing.

Ok, y'all convinced me. Used one of the credits I've been sitting on and got it from Audible. I love Wil, but wasn't sold on the sample included (though, honestly, they picked a rather 'meh' info-dump as their sample). We'll see how it goes- if I don't like the audio I'll switch to the print, which I already have :)

Charleen (charleenlynette) | 1530 comments I wanted to join in but I can't get the audio in time (you'd think everyone wants to read the book before the movie comes out or something...) so I decided to make Armada my audio for the readathon. Not nearly as good as RPO, but... Wil Wheaton.

I don’t think I will see the movie. I am giving the book only 2 ⭐️⭐️. I enjoyed the book but it didn’t blow my mind.

Aww both of you?? Waaaaa!! Well, you tried. I'm sorry you didn't like it! :( It doesn't have a lot of substance but I love it for all its nostalgia and cheesiness.

I did like the nostalgia as well. 😁.

I really liked the nostalgia as well and the 80's references. But I am not a video game person at all [never was] and once Wade goes into the OASIS it just became meh for me. :-( I am so sorry.
I am loving My Lady Jane though, so its not all a loss.
And I LOVED Wil Wheaton as a narrator. He was magnificent.

Star Trek fan? Redshirts was hilarious and narrated by Wil. :) I can't believe his OWN BOOK doesn't have an audio version! :(

I haven’t read redshirts but will keep an eye for it now that you have mention several times. I have read some of the Star Trek books long time ago they weren’t too bad.


Stacie (stacieh) | 1813 comments I've fallen behind on this one- I just wasn't able to handle anything that required any emotional investment- but I'm hoping to be able to get into it now that things are calming down somewhat.

I have added Redshirts and will try and read it this year. It sounds awesome. I am an oddball Trek fan. I was not into the original and only watched TNG AFTER I was married. I totally loved Voyager but nothing after [I just watched DS9 last year and am ambivalent]. I was NOT a fan of the early movies except for Voyage Home, which is so freaking hilarious you'd have to be dead to not like that one. I was so not into the idea of the reboot and so the ex saw it alone. And grumbled CONTINUALLY about it. Enough that I had to go see it to calm him the F down. And totally and completely fell in love with the Star Trek universe. He was not the fan of the reboot like I became so when we split, that was not a movie set that would bug me as I watched the new ones [unlike Star Wars that I cannot even watch a trailer for - men are stupid].

RAMBLE RAMBLE RAMBLE. Sorry about that. This is what happens when you spend an extraordinary amount of time alone. LOL

All good dawn all good. Ramble away. I like the reboot too. Anytime you want to talk to someone I’m all ears. 😘😘😘

Or, alternatively, you can go to his site on bandcamp where the download is $12 :) https://wilwheaton.bandcamp.com/album...

And it looks like you can just listen to it from the site itself (I just played through the first chapter)

I finished yesterday. Love it still. But man I had a problem with the small font! I couldn't read it before bed, it's too dark in my bedroom! lol. I much prefer the audiobook in this case!

Excellent I’m glad I’m not the only one struggling with small font these days. Gosh I am now borrowing large print from the library as well. I am liking ebooks cause it’s bright and also you can change the font size 😂 thankfully there are still books that have a reasonable size font. I really don’t know what they are thinking which such small font.


Charleen (charleenlynette) | 1530 comments I'll occasionally get a LP book out of the library if the regular is unavailable. I went through a run of them a while back and the larger size started to feel "right," and then it was a struggle to go back.

Yeah that is a consideration but I generally have a mixture so hopefully it will keep me in touch.

Yes, I love being able to change the font size in e-books!


Stacie (stacieh) | 1813 comments I finished this last night :) I still love the 80's cheesiness, and the way he got the feel of those 80's sci-fi/adventure flicks right. It was a little hard for me to click with Wil's narration in the beginning, because it just wasn't the way I'd heard it in my head the first time I read it (his Anorak voice was just... not.), but I still thoroughly enjoyed this. Then I passed the audio over to Mom and she's enjoying it so far, too (I'm hearing a lot of giggles and "Oh God, that show...")
