Is this definitely the September read? What's the August read?  :)

It is, but there is not an August read. We only had 4 people vote in our last poll, a 2 way tie. Participation has been kinda low, so we just decided to take a month off (we never have as many participants as we do voters, so that voting turnout really didn't bode well for the month of August's discussions)

Ah ok, that's fair. I've noticed this month's read doesn't seem to be getting as much discussion as usual. Maybe having a month for people to catch up a bit with non-bookclub reading will help, and then there'll be lots of people joining in with future months.  :) I really need to be better at looking out for the votes. I keep forgetting and then missing them!

Really looking forward to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.  :D

This is the September Book Club - you need to wait another 19 days :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

As September is coming up, a reminder about our book club!

And here are the chapter breaks.

Week 1: Stop reading when you see the chapter title 'Port Coriol'
Week 2: Stop reading when you see chapter title 'The Last War'
Week 3: Stop reading when you see chapter title 'Heresy'
Week 4: Finish

I tore through this book rather fast, really really enjoyed it, so am hoping for a good turn out this month!!

Also, I thought about seeing how people would feel about me posting all the discussion threads now. People can post to them as they advance in the book. If people are worried this won't work, I know in the past some people have said they have felt "left out" of discussions when they were getting posts before they were able to read, I can hold onto my comments for each week. Just thought I'd check :)
