    Default First book debrief, no spoilers

    Well, I'd like to get some feedback on how this went. I feel like the pace may have been a little too much for anyone to keep up based on the comments I've seen. Let me know what you guys think. Do you think the discussions were done in a good way? Should there have been less reading per week? Is anyone actually done with the book yet? Let me know so we can make the next one even better!

    My plan was to do "Judas Unchained" which was part two of the series. But seeing as I didn't have much (any) response to this book, I figure I can do pretty much anything else. I'm sitting at an airport right now getting ready to fly home. I'll post some stuff up tomorrow.

    I am astounded that you didn't receive ANY response!! If I weren't completely, absolutely 150% (over)booked for the next 10 months (five classes, a couple honors programs and a few jobs, toddler, husband, puppy.. partridge in a pear tree).. I'd participate. Maybe it'll get rolling on the next book.

    ACK! I'm actually still reading Pandora's Star and enjoying the heck out of it!!!

    Major apologies for not keeping up with the pace, but I didn't realize how little time I have to read! Don't tell anyone, but I've started sneaking in a few pages between customers at work!

    that's the feedback I'm looking for. I get the impression noone reads as fast as they thought they did which is fine but it means we need to do shorter book segments. But still you're the only response to this thread...maybe people think there's spoilers here.

    I'm definitely up to do something by Asimov. Let me look through the list.
