Post What Month During Q2 Will You Be Reading?
One of the problems I have noticed with the quarterly book discussions that 'In Person' book discussions do not have is having everyone reading the book at a different pace throughout the Quarter. In an 'In Person' Book Discussion, you would not be able to attend a meeting if you were not prepared by having read the selected chapters. So I was curious when everyone planned to begin the reading and participate in discussion.

To get a better feel for both how many people plan on reading and when everyone will be reading, I would like to enquire which month you will begin reading this selection and when you plan to join the discussion. Please feel free to select a month and/or elaborate below.

Cheers!
-Steve

Steve

I'm on about the 30th page right now. This thread is a good idea and I hope we hear from quite a few members.

Excellent! I am up to page 90 so far. I took a short break from reading Harris to read Ender's Game for the Q2 fiction reading. Looks like we are already starting to get some discussion going here, a great start!

I plan to read through it slowly and make lots of comments as I go along, so it might take the whole three months! I'm reading "Slow" by Carl Honore at the moment - he recommends slow reading, which looks just like what this forum was designed for. So slow down Steve and let's have some more great comments.

Post Re: What Month During Q2 Will You Be Reading?
I was not suggesting to read fast... I was only trying to figure out how many other people would be reading and when they plan on participating. I volunteered at Chris's request to be a Discussion Leader and I thought it would be good to know when everyone will be participating.

I've been reading a little and taking some notes. I'll start posting either tonight or tomorrow.

May I suggest that we not use the chapter prefix for every new thread we start? At this rate it will quickly become difficult find the main thread for each chapter.

Post Re: What Month During Q2 Will You Be Reading?
Agreed. Unless a specific topic that bridges the entire book is to be discussed, we should probably keep discussion within the orginal chapter threads started by Chris. I think some of the sub-threads have/will develop as a unifying critique of a specific idea covering the entire book and those are good threads to seperate out.

Have not started it yet...but it is in my active reading plie...so I should be starting it soon. I am reading "Enders Game" right now. I have been reding 2-3 books at a time lately, but for some reason, I do not feel like doing that at this time. I may just finish "EG" and then start the Harris book. So maybe in a few days...

Post Re: What Month During Q2 Will You Be Reading?
Well, I figure since I've been contributing to discussion, I ought to pay at least a token admission by reading the book. I won't be buying it (sorry, Chris -- I'll make it up to you as soon as I get my taxes paid), but the university library has a few copies. Unfortunately, they're all checked out at the moment, so I'll have to wait until someone decides to bring a copy back. But if it's any consolation, I'll probably burn through the book in a couple of days when I do get my hands on it.

Glad to hear you will be giving it a read, MadArchitect! It is definitely a quick read, if not for Ender's Game and skiing half the week, I probably would have finished it by now.

I started the book yesterday. Considering that I got through the first chapter in a single evening, I'll probably finish the book in a week or so.

Come on and join us, Nick! We could use some balance to the discussion. My posts haven't been oppositional, so you won't be the only one(like you mind that, anyway)!

I'm with you on that, Nick. But I can't complain because I have yet to start posting.
