Hey everyone! I wanted to get this posted for you earlybirds! We will be starting on Jan 15th. Hopefully, you have acquired a copy and if not you still have time! Should be fun!

Editado: Jan 4, 2010, 12:24pm

Oh, I would have joined up for this if I had not already joined the Anna Karenina group read at the same date. Ah, well...maybe some other time:) Enjoy your reading!

Jan 4, 2010, 1:11pm

Hey Mark;
I am so looking forward to this group read. It should be very exciting after our reading of "Pillars of the Earth". Hopefully the turnout will be as good!~! C'mon you guys...............join us. It will be great!~!

Jan 4, 2010, 1:12pm

Yet another starred thread to read. I think my stars have stars!! LOL. Can't wait and thanks for organizing us yet again.

Jan 4, 2010, 1:14pm

Hey there Berly. We were posting at the same time. Great minds & all that. hee hee. Looking forward to seeing you there!~!
luv n hugs,

Jan 4, 2010, 1:15pm

Belva--Yeah! I get to chat with you here. Love and Laughter. Berly

I've added a link on the group page to this thread. You may want to consider setting up a spoiler thread for discussion. That way folks can discuss events in the book, etc, without worrying about spoiling things for those who aren't keeping up or haven't started yet.

Jan 4, 2010, 1:50pm

Boy, the party has started! Who's bringing the beer? Welcome Belva & Berly!
Apolline- Sorry you can't join us! I think you might be making a much better literary choice, anyway! I plan on doing a G.R. of Midnight's Children in March. Keep that in mind!
Jim- Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I will sent up different "spoiler threads", as soon as I figure out how I want to split the book up. I think 6 weeks might be to long, maybe we could do it in 4?

Jan 4, 2010, 4:39pm

Ooh, does it count if I'm in for a re-read? I loved this book and would love to discuss it with someone besides my stuffed animals!

Jan 6, 2010, 8:45pm

I'm glad I found you guys before you started. I'm thinking about reading Moby Dick also. This will be interesting. Before joining LT I'd never read 2 books at one time.Now I've graduated to 2 or 3 at a time.

Jan 6, 2010, 10:03pm

>this1hasspirit- Yes, of course we count re-reads and we're a lot more fun than your stuffed animals...or at least most of us are!
> tjblue- I'm glad you found us too! Yes, LT is a life-changer!

Jan 6, 2010, 10:21pm

I'm in as well. I read Pillars of the Earth back in 1989 so I am overdue for a trip back to England in the 14th century.

Jan 7, 2010, 9:52am

I have my book ready to go!!

Jan 7, 2010, 5:35pm

I'm glad I finally found you guys! I made sure I brought my copy back to Uni with me so I could join in the group read (let's hope I'll actually participate properly unlike with Pillars).

Jan 7, 2010, 5:48pm

Donna- Yes, you are due, my friend! It'll be great to have you!
BJ & Rachel- Glad you are joining us! Should be fun!

Jan 10, 2010, 11:31am

Hey everyone! It's nearly that time all-ready! Wow! We start this Friday the 15th. It's another big book but I think we can do it in 4 weeks. If it takes you longer, no biggie!
The book is broken into 7 parts. 1st week: Parts 1 & 2 (166 pages). Week 2: Parts 3 & 4 (330 pages). Week 3: Part 5 (200 pages) and Week 4: Parts 6 & 7 (300).
How's that sound? I think it's reasonable. Remember, this is just a recommended reading pace! Read it however you want to! I will start a separate thread for each week!

Jan 11, 2010, 8:54pm

Oh thank you! I'm in. I've had this book for quite a while but I've not had quite the stretch of time available for reading it. I start my first chemotherapy treatment next week and was looking thru my TBR stacks then saw this message and its all karma. I'm ready.

Welcome aboard, Silverbooks!
Here's the link to the "spoiler free" Week One thread: http://www.librarything.com/topic/82056

Jan 12, 2010, 1:59pm

thanks for the welcome - I've not done an online group read before so I'll sit back and see how things happen. The whole "75 Books Challenge" group seem like a lot of nice people. I'm looking forward to it.

Jan 15, 2010, 8:24am

I'm here. I picked up the book from the library Wednesday night. Just trying to finish up The National Parks,was able to read about 60 pgs this morning before leaving for work. I have about 30pgs left to go then will be ready to start.

Jan 15, 2010, 1:16pm

I'll try and finish A Sacerdotisa dos Penhascos today so that I don't get behind and miss all the fun.

Jan 16, 2010, 6:34am

Hope everyone has got started! I read the 1st 40 pages (which is my goal per day). Here is the Week One link, for Parts 1&2: http://www.librarything.com/topic/82056

Jan 16, 2010, 11:20am

I started this morning, stopped at part II. Thanks for making a good book choice, I'm going to really enjoy this one.

Jan 17, 2010, 6:11am

I've read the first three chapters, it's looking good. I'll see you on the Week One thread soon.

(spoiler free)
I just finished the book Mark. And I think that I loved World Without End even more that I did The Pillars of the Earth by Follett. There was always something going on so when I put it down, I couldn't wait to get back to it. This one was full of underlying story lines. I hope all of you are enjoying it as much as I did. And where in "Pillars" it seemed as if the Cathedral was a character in and of itself; in "World" the plague takes on that characterization. Wonderful writing by Follett.
Thank you Mark. It was just a wonderful read and I will see you in March for Midnight's Children, which I am looking forward to as it will be my first Salman Rushdie.
hugs all round,

I don't know that I "ought" to post here as I have already read this book.. I discovered it last year, and I can tell you you are in for a treat. Its a wonderful book. It kept me reading furiously, pages were burning. Hope you all have the same wonderful experience!
