I really was kidding about the Wheel of Time. I tend to skim the books when I actually want to enjoy them, skimming most of the slow parts... which usually means flipping past 200 pages or more at at time...

Well, I would love to join you guys but I've noticed that my non-school reading is currently at a level of about 50 pages/month. And that's not quite enough to keep up with a book club, I'm afraid. This sounds great, though, so I hope it works!


i'm with v-bell on this at least till around May 10 or so >.>;;

on another know His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik is a great book Razz

Amazon: The world's greatest bookstore! If don't know what shipping to your location is like, but there were used copies for around $0.71(plus S&H) when I bought my copy online last night.

My library has 1, 2, 3, and 7... the problem is, I might not have time to read them, unless I'm begging for a way to procrastinate on homework. I'll try, if not, I'll read them later!

They don't do used book sales for Israel?

I think it's probably hard to find a seller on amazon that lives in Israel. . .

No, they just won't let me buy used books, period. Don't ask me why.

All you need is a used book seller who will ship to Israel -- doesn't have to go through Amazon. Try Alibris and ABE Books. And it's just USED books, right? I don't think there are shipping restrictions on new books.

Of course, the whole idea of putting shipping restrictions on USED books but not NEW ones is straight-up crazy to begin with ...

I'm away for six days and you start a club? Sheesh. And I am so on board with this but I haven't got anything to suggest just yet, I'll get back to you on that.

/Edit, actually, I just thought of one, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

I need to get to the library rather badly - maybe I can get up there tomorrow. The one 5 minutes from my house doesn't have it, so we'll have to see. . .I hope I can still check out, I've probably got a huge fine XD
