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!

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.

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?

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!

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.

>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!

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.

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).

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

(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,
belva

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!
