Started reading it a bit ago. Page 18 so far.

I like the language in this book, and the descriptions.

Ooh, dangit. I came in a little too late. I would, however, like to suggest Dune as the next book. This sounds fun.

You're not too late, we literally just started. If you think you could acquire the book and read the first two sections before the deadline (3/18), then you can certainly join us.

My copy arrived today!

But I won't be able to start reading until tomorrow. >_>

Feel like you're back in high school, putting off your summer reading?
Probably not a Goat, either.

Yes. I'll make the time one of these few days!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I finished the first two iterations this morning. Very cool so far, especially the whole kinotrope thing.

Hey, shush! Not all of us are there yet! Also, spoiler tags should probably be used, just in case!

Don't worry what Slinky said isn't a spoiler :P

But the Kinotrope is a pretty cool idea.
