    Default Pandora's Star

    Ok, cool, it looks like for initial interest we have 7 or 8 of us

    Partially to be lazy and partially because the books do absolutely rock, I was thinking of launching our book reading with Peter F. Hamilton's duology of "Pandora's Star" & "Judas Unchained". If people would rather do something else just say so, doesn't matter to me either way. I figure we can get started next week since its already Monday for me. So, speak up if you're in and if you're horribly opposed to the book selection, just let me know!

    *Edit* I modified the title of the thread so people know what our current book is. If someone could sticky this for me that would rock!

    I'm okay with both those books (seeing I already have them) and I have plenty of reading time as well seeing next weekend (on the east coast, anyway) is a long weekend "Queens Birthday"

    But I'm willing to change books if people want

    I'm in! Someone will have to tell me how these book club things work - do we read on a schedule?

    Cool, then we'll start next week! I'll take a look at the chapters and see how best to split it up. Just out of curiosity, what is the general number of pages people would be comfortable reading in a week?

    Don't ask me. I just read a 800+ page book over the weekend plus two 24 page short stories & a 230 page DTB.

    That's the reason I asked...I'm the same. I remember when I got Order of the Phoenix, I sat down in a chair that afternoon and didn't get up again until the book was finished. I would guess though that many here are able to do about the same so 150 - 200 pages might not be unreasonable for a week.
