Time passed. The days grew shorter...finally I landed us at tomes_of_lore, Taaroko made it awesome with word-pictures, and we decided to get started on Friday. It's going to be very relaxed– just a couple chapters a week, and nobody's required to stick to the pace. We're just going to make posts of our observations, questions, or squees over what we've just read, plus a weekly official discussion post.
If you don't want to read along but just want to listen to others talking about the book, that's fine too. Invite whomever you'd like; jump in at any time. Look for some kind of introductory post on Friday. And whither then? I cannot say.
