Do we need an extension on the book? Conversation is going nowhere right now, and, personally, I'd like to see more than just two of us participating. If you guys need more time, speak up. Mer said when she chose the book that the schedule was not set in stone. We're all busy; I don't think anyone will begrudge some extra time in the interest of keeping up a decent conversation.

Similarly, participate where you can. You don't have to reply to the most recent post. If you still haven't made it past chapter five, it's okay to reply to the first post again. There are no rules about where and when and how many times one can reply. This is supposed to be a discussion. If other things occur to you, or you want to weigh in on something that you haven't addressed yet, go for it.

Not that I'm trying to force anyone to comment. But this isn't going to work if no one says anything.

ETA: I should apologise. I have no idea how this post sounds; for some reason, I can't get any sense of its tone. So if I'm coming across as confrontational or impatient or anything else unpleasant, I sincerely apologise. I don't mean it that way at all.

Agreed. I know life has been crazy for several of you lately. I can hold off a bit longer on the next section or I can post and people can chime in where ever they are in the book. Does that sound alright?

I like the icon.

Either way sounds good. Prolly better if you keep going, if you don't mind laggers too horribly much, so the others can discuss what they've already read and not get bored.

Thanks. The quote is from A Series of Unfortunate Events. The picture, as I'm sure you noticed, is from Beauty and the Beast.

I'm caught up with the reading and game to keep going if others are, too.

I'm sorry to all of you.

Yes, I got behind, then I felt ashamed that I wasn't keeping up, so kinda sorta stopped checking for more updates 'cause I felt guilty.

Anyway, I'm working to catch up, and will reply to the older comments, since that's fine and all. Sorry for flaking. Well, will reply tomorrow, since I'm shot.

I'm caught up on the reading, but right now my priority isn't this community. (ouch, that sounded harsh). Mer, you know I'm going through somewhat of a personal crisis here. Don't delay on my part, I'll get around to it maybe this week, and I'll be all caught up. I'm just in the middle of finals, a quarterly report due for work, and a HORRIBLE situation emotionaly speaking. To those of you who pray, please do so for my roommmate, she needs it! I'll be back in this community this weekend, or Thursday.

I will be back to discuss this soon, I promise. I have actually read all but the last thirty pages at this point, finally.

Yay, cool!

No rush, though. I think I may be the only one who's actually finished the bok so far.
