Momsurrounded, if you need a copy since you may not have access to your kindle, let me know and maybe I can mail you mine. I literally finished that book yesterday, so I can jot down a few notes before sending it off.

Actually I emailed a friend and they offered to let me "borrow" their kindle version of the book...in return I'll let them "borrow" my 50 shades trilogy. It's win for me!

The beauty of books! Even the electronic variety.

Whatever works for everyone is fine by me.

Haha, I'm really excited about this. Just wanted to announce that Tongue.

Time to head home. I will keep checking in on the thread and we will have a book picked probably by the end of the night to start out on.

Let's just set it at the 2nd Sunday of every month for opening of the thread and we can discuss any details for Skype discussions as we get closer to that day.

Just to clarify, that means our first discussion will open May 12th, the 2nd discussion on June 9th, and the 3rd on July 14th.

Sounds like a good plan...though I don't have Skype. Maybe I'll make one just for this xD.

To me it looks like God is Not Great is going to win.

Anyone else find it funny that Deconverted was not on the list? Kinda proves my point to Egor in that thread about Seth not posting on this forum. Cool

Just realised that...I quite want to read that as well. Maybe it'll be here in the future?

I thought about it but I don't think there is as much to discuss. Someone's life story might lend for comparison, which we already do, but not much else.

When will the polling end? 2, three hours? Less, more?
