Introductory Thread: Who's Reading With Us?
« on: May 08, 2016, 03:01:53 PM »
Hello to all,

Here is the first thread for our June book club read: The Stone Road by @G_R_Matthews.

The book is available on U.S. Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Stone-Road-Forbidden-List-Book-ebook/dp/B00GHNPY28?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0, and I know it to be available on the UK site. GRM has also offered to provide some copies for free. (I just bought my Kindle version.)

So, who's reading with us?
Change, when it comes, will step lightly before it kicks like thunder. (GRMatthews)
You are being naive if you think that any sweet and light theme cannot be strangled and force fed it's own flesh. (Nora)

but if we did that, how would we support the author?  why don't you care about the author, man?!  handing out free copies like you wrote it or something!

but seriously, since it's kindle unlimited, i'm good!


p.s.  i can already tell i'm gonna have fun reading books with a direct line of communication to the authors.  SO EXCITED!  #PleaseDontHateMe

p.p.s.  yup -- i totally just dropped a hashtag in a post.  #rebel

I'll try to! I am not good with sticking to a reading schedule, but I already read it, so I will most likely still be able to take part, even if I fall back or read ahead as usual ;)
