OK, I'm in, it's on Audible and I've got a few credits available. Should be a nice juxtaposition to all the football I'm watching and listening to at the moment.

Downloaded Kafka on the Shore from Audible today! Is there an actual start date for this?

It's also on youtube, but I went to the end of part 2 and it cuts something off at the end, so you'd have to find the book somewhere to finish it.

side note: Every time I read the words Kafka on the Shore, I think "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra."

Hey - let's start discussions on 8/31 - by then I figure most people will have gotten the book in some form and we can start talks by about the first few chapters.
Any thoughts...?
Hey, nice marmot!

oldkid - should we move it back?
I think everyone would be fine with that. I want everyone to be able to participate...

No, absolutely not.  I am keeping myself from other book projects so I can dive into it as soon as I receive it.
