(Okay, so, I've noticed I'm nominating way more than anyone else. I don't want to be stepping on toes or anything, so please let me know if this a problem.)

(I'm basically sharing my to-read list here and anything getting picked gives me a kick in the ass to read something on the list.)


@jessmahler @naga I loved Invisible Planets. I don't think we've done a story collection before; I wonder if it would be worth trying to synchronise within it, like "this week we're reading the first 3 stories"?

@eldang Just going by previous months, people's reading speeds and times seem to be all over the place, so doubt synchronizing would work well.

@jessmahler @naga The thing I'm wondering about is if it would be nice for people who have a busy week to be able to pick up at the same place as everyone else, since the stories aren't sequential.

@eldang Not sure how I missed this before, but yeah that sounds like something that could work if folks wanted to try. @naga

@naga Ah! I forgot that Raven Tower was a read this year. Thanks for putting that spreadsheet together. I just read the book, so I'll jump down to read the responses now.
