11:15 pm - Chat? Chat?

Ok, bren_jay and elphaba13 and dirtimartini and I are done with the book. Who else is reading or has read? nightmere? Who's up for discussion? Should we pick a date and time to dig in?

bren_jay posted some questions for discussion in the last post. And there's this site and more on the web to stimulate discussion. Elphaba posted a link to a cool discussion guide too. There's lots! Where do we start?

Hi! elphaba13 told me you all are reading Oryx and Crake, and I thought I'd join the discussion, if that's alright with y'all. I noticed there were a few poeple reading it, but I thought it was just the hot book of the moment.... Glad to be here.

9:20 am - Checking In

Hey folks! I finally figured out how to post here.

Ok, I got the book, and I had NO IDEA what it was about beforehand. So I got over a moment of surprise. It's great so far, I am really enjoying it.

So, where is everybody? Got the book? Started reading? I'm at Chapter 5. If anyone else has made some progress and wants to chat about the story so far, we can discuss behind cut tags.

Yay book chat!

5:13 pm - some thoughts----feedback?

i tend to dive in, so please someone pull me out if need be.
my original thought was a book a month, maybe with a nomination/poll type thing to take place about a week before the new month to decide on the upcoming book and give time for us all to track it down.
is a book a month too much? too little?
how can we go about chatting it up without spoiling it for those who arent to the same spot? my first thought was to use a cut tag with the chapter # or page # as the title, so that anyone that hasnt gotten to that point can steer clear if they want to...and then perhaps a set date towards the end of the month where we kinda rap it up and share general thoughts on the book . but now im thinking, should this be a free flowing continous discussion (going along with the cut idea above), or shoud we wait until everyone has finished the book and then have a set date to chat it up?
any other thoughts? bring em on

current mood: nerdy
