    I finished part 1! Woo!

    Haha from the book and fits how the first part feels. I'm more interested in part two already.

    Falcarius is not against the idea of a TypoC book club per se, but he sort of has a fifty book reading backlog as it is. Falcarius can't be the only one with a book buying addiction right?

    I may be interested in the book club, but I'm not a big sci-fi/futureworld type person, so I may sit this one out. Definitely would be more interested in thread discussion than Vent.

    I might be, but am unlikely to go hunting out books just because others want to discuss them if they weren't of interest to me already. I'd be more likely to want to discuss stuff that I already have/have read/was contemplating reading.

    So I just realized that Ive never been part of a book club and Im not entirely sure what gets discussed when we finish.

    Is it just... Whatever members bring up to talk about? Do we analyze character/plot/etc? Or do we just talk about opinions of the book thus far? Is there something I should be looking for as I read?

    Great! Next time around we'll try to read something completely different, so hopefully you can join in.

    I think it all depends on what people want to discuss. We might have some English major types who want to discuss writing techniques, etc; but it's totally ok if we just want to start with what we think of the book, characters, etc. I'd say make note of anything you think would be interesting to discuss as you read, and we'll see what we come up with.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I like scifi books, I might read it, but my focus to read books in the last 5 years has been staggering, 1 at best and at 1,000 pages. I used to love chunky books, the chunkier the better, I visited multiple libraries in my once prolific book reading days. I miss those days, I'll try find and read the book. What kind of author would he be INTJ, is the book hard science fiction?

    I'm going to order it today and hopefully it will come soon enough and I'll be able to finish it in time. If not I'll probably still read it, because I've read Snow Crash by him and loved it.it should get here wednesday. I do all my homework for the week on sunday so i'll have time to finish it.

    We create random fan fiction sequels and what ifs, where Buffy and Jack Sparrow have sex with the protagonist.
