Taking Part:

I will vote for that 2-3 chapters depending on length chapter

I would also suggest that some may not have time to read or read slower (I have all sorts of time and read pretty fast) to mention if they would like more time to finish the read. Within reason of course as it wouldn't be fair to others to take a month or two to read 2-3 chapters.

soooo.. would we start this on Monday June 1 with our thoughts/comments posted by Monday June 8?

aaann - tii -cii -paaayyy - tion...  *grin*

Just had a quick look at the book and the chapters are of decent length (can't stand these books with single page chapters), so I think three is a good number to go for. Enough to get our teeth into the plot.

We can always increase the amount read as the weeks go on if we feel we need to

Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

I'm good with 3/week and a June 1 start date. Once we get the rest on board, were good to go: SnowMani, Aberfitchjr and Wilyone

So, we'll start reading as soon as you want but we won't comment on the chapters until Monday June 8th. The reason for that, is, so that we don't spoil anyone who hasn't read up until that date. Once Monday rolls around, it'll be a free for all on the comments. The only thing left to decide, would be the number of chapters/week. How about everyone reads at their own pace (minimum 3 chapters) and if we notice that people are reading more, we can increase it.

You can add me  :D The complete serie seems to be on my Dutch Kobo reader. Have to read it in dutch, but that won't be a problem, I hope.
Great idea!

As long as you post in english!  ;D Otherwise it'll be all Dutch (or was is that Greek?) to me ;)
