Oop, I hope it's good now XD

So far I'm in love with The Road, the language is just so evocative! Can't wait to hear your deep thoughts on it Baxter!

I'm slightly terrified of it, but Blood Meridian was the one that all my friends agreed that they would never read again so maybe The Road will be sunshine and rainbows in comparison

I've moved around/eliminated some things in order to reduce redundancy (and my workload), with thanks to Bothers for helping me realize the need to do so:

* Nomination threads will no longer be kept in a separate folder. They will remain in place and be open until their books are finished when they will be archived along with their book's discussion. There will no longer be separate book announcement threads.

* The "Book Info and Schedule" post has been deleted, its information replaced by links in the Book Section Discussion threads.

Does anyone know how to delete a game folder? Or do I have to petition an Admin?

After getting over 1/3 of the way through the book and not getting to the grape-flavored water, I've adjusted the schedule.

I don't think we were trying to get to "grape-flavored water." It's the section about grape-flavored water. I stopped at the two back-to-back scenes where they're drinking the packet with the cistern water and then walking through the cold rain with the insufficient tarp. I think the second section started at "freezing rain" or something along those lines.

Regardless, it was pretty unclear and I was actively looking for the stopping point.

Ha. I sat up for ages last night reading it, thinking "surely this grape thing is going to show up soon?"

I was thinking that as the Kindle percentage ticked to 35 and they came upon that one house with the windows intact, and I'm like "yeah, no." There's no way I wanted to lump that house in with everything up to it.

The point I found was just after he explores that house. Sounds like we're pretty close to the same page.

Wow, I just went to drop in my nomination for April and realised that the closing date is officially today. This has been the quickest February of my entire life.

I'm glad you did! I forgot to get to my own, and then forgot what I wanted to nominate for a minute. Looks like it's just you and me for now.

It's funny that you nominate the King thing when I'm reading my first book by him. I've always been a bit too non-conformist to pick him up before. I don't like things that have so much hype about them, but my sister gave me the Kennedy assassination one for Christmas so I have to read it. I'm about 2/3 of the way through and must admit that it's really good!

Nominations are supposed to close now, but two's not company enough. Feel free to add more by this time tomorrow when I'll roll.

How's everyone doing on March's read? I haven't even started yet :/ I think I burned myself out on too much existentialism at once last month and haven't been able to pick another book up since. Maybe once I get this week's (very non-existentialist) university assignment out of the way I'll feel more able to get started.

I'm a few days late. I just finished the first section last night. I'm thinking of some thoughts and such for the discussion thread.

I think I might take next month's read off. Sorry Adams! I need a breather and to catch up on my bedside pile of books.
