Post How should this discussion be structured?
I don't have a copy of this book yet and haven't been able to find a Table of Contents so I'm at a loss for the best way to structure this book discussion.

Lindad_amato has volunteered to lead this discussion so I will defer to her on this question. Please take a look through the book and let me know your thoughts. Either you or I can create discussion threads. Should they be chapter-based or page-based or some other format?

We can just make it up as we go along. :mrgreen:

Here's an online version which breaks it up by chapters.

I've just ordered my copy. I'm going to read this tome, dammit.

I just got my copy of "Lost Memory of Skin". It does have chapters, although they are not named. The novel has five parts with many small chapters within each part. The best way to create the threads may be to combine three or four chapters in each thread. Example: Part one, chapters 1-4, Part one, chapters 5-8, etc.

Post Re: How should this discussion be structured?
I agree Suzanne, I think if the chapter breakdown is too numerous the discussion becomes fragmented and hard to follow and you can waste time trying to figure out where to post stuff. 5 parts is a good number. But I think we should go with part one and then part TWO !! (lol)
