Post How should this discussion be organized?
According to the table of contents I've found on Amazon.com there aren't individual chapters for this book. Does anyone have suggestions for how this discussion should be organized? We can divide the book into about 12 sections and create 1 thread for each section. I see the main book contains 453 pages / 12 = about 38 pages per section.

Any thoughts? :shock:

Post Re: How should this discussion be organized?
Chris,

I have the book here. It has 59 chapters - they are between 5 and 15 pages each. I have the edition from the publisher "Vintage International", the same that the Kindle version is based on.

Funny, if you click on the Kindle version, you see also a paperback version, but it does not appear in the search :-(

Here is the Link: http://www.amazon.com/My-Name-Is-Red-ebook/dp/B000MAH7UE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1361200705&sr=8-2&keywords=my+name+is+red

Thank you for taking the reins with this discussion, Aomame. :-)

Since there are 59 chapters I'll create 6 threads of 10 chapters each. I've found with fiction books the fewer the threads the better.

That sounds like a good number of threads - enough to start a discussion but not too much to start forgetting :-)

I have started to red the book and I am fascinated about the writing!
