New Book!

Woo! Today I'll start reading my book :) Looking forward to the discussions!

We've had pneumonia at our house - the baby had just the beginnings, is what the dr told us, so I still haven't got the book yet: been distracted! But I can set up a 2-week/chapter schedule if that works for ya'll. Or we can try going without a schedule. What do you think?

I am so excited, this is my very first book club! How much shall we read at a time?

What we've done in the past is about a chapter every week, sometimes every 2 weeks. I don't have the book yet (some intense distraction going on here; hoping to remedy the situation TOMORROW), so you'll have to tell me how long the chapters are, and what sounds reasonable.

Ew! Pneumonia is no good. Hope you all feel better!!

I don't know about you guys, but I find I do best with a schedule, a bi-product of my public education, no doubt :)

So, I was poking through the book and I was thinking we could consider doing 2 week blocks, and do a schedule that looks something sort of like this:
To have read by
Jan 29 - Part 1 (55pgs)
Feb 12 - Part 2; Chap 4-6 (55pgs)
Feb 26 - Part 2; Chap 7&8 (36pgs)
March 12 - Part 3; Chap 9-11 (53pgs)
March 26 - Part 3; Chap 12-14 (58pgs)
April 2 - Part 4 (45pgs)

Let me know what you think.. reasonable chunks or too much?

Looks good to me! I'll post it on the side bar. I ordered my copy today, so if all goes well it'll be here shortly, and I'll be able to post on time. If not, I'll play catch-up ASAP.
