I've read many books that way, once in the blue moon when work is slow.

message 31: by Mike (new)

Mike Wallace | -86 comments I finished Bird Box yesterday.


 (shan) Littlebookcove (littlebookcove) | 137 comments it's like one of those books that totally keeps you on the edge of your seat. and really makes you think. I think I'm going be talking about this book for week's.

Mike, did you read it on an e-reader and, if so, would you be willing to lend it to me? Our library doesn't have it, and $14.99 is more than I generally want to spend for a group read book.

If you are willing to lend it, just PM me, and I'll give you my e-mail address. Thanks.


message 34: by Mike (new)

Mike Wallace | -86 comments Hi Deborah. I belong to Audible, so I used one of my monthly credits to get the audio book. I'm not sure if it's sharable.

Marc-Antoine | 2888 comments Just ordered my copy, I'm in!


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

message 38: by Jia (new)

Jia Zhu | 8 comments My very first group read ever, quite excited:)


message 39: by Marc-Antoine (new)

Marc-Antoine | 2888 comments Just got an notice that my copy has shipped, I hope I receive before I leave for vacation on Friday... If not, I may be a little late on the discussion. This looks like a good one.


message 40: by Monica (new)

Monica Go | 434 comments It's my first one too!


message 41: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Read the first chapter. Very good start.


message 42: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 71 comments I feel the same, about an hour and half in on audible and enjoying it greatly. Can't wait to go to bed tonight is I can listen to more of it. The tension is already creeping in, and I'm enjoying the way it's flipping between the 2 timelines.


message 43: by Coatesj (new)

Coatesj | 15 comments Read it cover to cover in one night. So enjoyable, so creepy.

Ohh! That sounds fun!


message 48: by Jia (new)

Jia Zhu | 8 comments Finished!
Considering how little we actually *see* throughout the whole book, I think the author has really achieved something very special here!


message 49: by Michele (new)

Michele Mai (maidink) | 13 comments Getting my copy tonight at the library. I can't wait! I told everyone in work and they were like, "You're that excited to go to the library for a book?" I gave a rather over enthusiastic "YES!"


message 50: by Deborah (new)

Deborah (brandiec) | 229 comments Does anyone who's finished the book have a lendable ebook? I really want to read this one, but I'm still balking at the $14.99 price tag, especially since I rarely reread books.
