Me, Anni, and Cordelianne are buddy reading Ready Player One as soon as it comes available in our libraries. Anyone can join in on the buddy read if they want.

I could too. If I reserve my copy it'll take about a week for it to be ready for pick up, what about yours?


Cordelianne | 97 comments My library only has one copy and that one is still loaned out until middle of October, so you two can also start without me, because I am afraid this will still take quite some time :(


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments My library has several copies, one of them is currently available. It always changes relatively quickly 😅 so if we want ro start soon, I'd reserve it too

Lou (aliceinbagend) | 527 comments Mod
I've reserved mine... it's actually ready for pick up. Let me know when you're ready to start.


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments I just tried to reserve mine but it didn't work out :/ I'll try again tomorrow or call my library then. I'll let you know when I reserved it, it only might take a while til I can pick it up because it's currently loaned out.


Cordelianne | 97 comments I got an email yesterday telling me I can come and pick up the book. So I can start as well! Just let us know when you get a copy Anni!


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments I just reserved mine, it will be able for pick up next week because it's currently loaned out. I'll let you know when I have it :)

I've got a copy in my possession now, when do you want to start?


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments I haven't gotten any mail from my library yet :/ if I don't have the book til the end of the week, maybe you want to start without me...:/


Cordelianne | 97 comments Yes works for me, because I can only borrow the book for a month maximum..


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments I just saw that mine is ready for pick up now :) Tomorrow my library is closed, but after that I'm gonna get my copy and we can start :)

Lou (aliceinbagend) | 527 comments Mod
Great!


Cordelianne | 97 comments Do we want to read a certain amount of pages per week or just random and discuss along the way?


message 18: by Lou, Book Queen (new) - rated it 2 stars

Lou (aliceinbagend) | 527 comments Mod
I don't mind, either sound great.


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments Maybe a certain amount of chapters? Like for example, 5 chapters per week?


Cordelianne | 97 comments ⭐Anni⭐ (Book Princess) wrote: "Maybe a certain amount of chapters? Like for example, 5 chapters per week?"

Sounds good to me.


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments I have my copy now, thanks for waiting me out guys! When do we want to start?


Cordelianne | 97 comments There are 33 chapters, so maybe 8 chapters per week. Which is a bit less than 100 pages a week. If that works for the both of you? And maybe starting on Monday?


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments Starting on Monday sounds good, and I think the amount of pages is ok :)


message 24: by Lou, Book Queen (new) - rated it 2 stars

Lou (aliceinbagend) | 527 comments Mod
Yep, let's do it.


Cordelianne | 97 comments Have you guys started yet?


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments Yes, I've read the first 2 chapters :)


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments It's kinda cool how much thought the author has put into his world


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments Hey, how's it going for you? I've finished the first 8 chapters yesterday :)


Cordelianne | 97 comments ⭐Anni⭐ (Book Princess) wrote: "Hey, how's it going for you? I've finished the first 8 chapters yesterday :)"

Okay good to hear, I just finished my other book, so I will be starting tonight and hopefully catch up with you very soon :) How far is the rest? Just write down your thought within a spoiler and I will comment on it once I have read the first 8 chapters as well. Sorry for the short delay from my side..

I've read chapters 1 & 2 yesterday so I'm a bit behind too, but so far I'm really intrigued in the story. I was brought up on '80s things so I definitely love the references! Honestly, I had no idea what this was about when I added it to be tbr (I don't really read blurbs - I just hear good things about books and read 'em) and I'm really looking forward to where this is going!


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments It actually was kind of hard for me to get into the book because in the first chapters there's so much information and I don't know much about the 80s^^ but from chapter 6 or so on I couldn't put it down :)

I read the first 2 chapters and I have the same thing, I don't know a lot about the 80, so that is kind of a pity, but I do like playing videogames, so that is something I can relate to :)


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments The geeky feel to the book in general is awesome :D even if I don't know the video games or movies mentioned, it's relatable.

I know exactly what you mean. I'm sort of slowing down but I'm almost coming to chapter 4. I guess it's one of those books that hits you with the world building first then whisks you off in the action later (well, I'm hoping it's like that)


Cordelianne | 97 comments I have fiinished until chapter 5 now and indeed the last chapters were a lot of information, without any real action. So hopefully it will get more interesting soon. I do really love the worldbuilding, but I prefer it when it is a bit more of a mix, instead of in a literal class room.


Cordelianne | 97 comments I am at chapter 10, really liking the story right now. Excited to see where the rest will go :)


⭐Anny⭐ (Book Princess) (annithebookprincess) | 175 comments Yeah that's exactly how I felt, it was sort of info dumping. I'm at chapter 9

I'm at chapter 18, really speeding on (view spoiler)
But also, I'm going to have to speak my mind; I wasn't impressed with the way, just a couple of pages in, it was having a bash on Christianity. If the author wants to bash it, fine, but how about he does so in another nonfiction book? So many books do this and I get authors want to put their beliefs in their books but reading should be a universal thing and having a go on something some people believe in is just limiting the readers' enjoyment (of the book) around the world. I mean I it's the author's choice but...argh I don't know how to explain! Do I that make sense anyway?

It's really fast paced now I'm in the midst of it - btw is this a standalone?

In the first chapter, he literally called it bulls**t. It just made me cringe with uneasiness...

Where is everyone in the book btw? I've slowed down reading because I don't want to overtake anyone but yeah, I'm still on chapter 18.
