Let it begin. LET IT BEGIN. :D

Oh, yay! I’m behind on Red Seas so this is perfect. Count me in, please!

Hell yes! I started it, but haven’t gotten very far yet, so I’ll be very patient and do it for the readalong. :)

Im In! just bought it!

Scott who?

heh heh heh heh heh………….. I’ll catch up one of these days.

Yayayayayayay! Cannot wait! Let the discussion commence.
Lynn :D

I’m in! Currently in the process of speed-reading it, and rather busy with stuff otherwise, but I’ll do my best to gather some thoughts from time to time! :D

Have obtained book! Am now ready.

I have to wait two damn weeks to get the audio version. I actually read the first two in print, so I’m interested in seeing how it will be in audio. I friggin’ want it now. Because two weeks after a 6 year wait MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

so i shouldn’t bring my kindle tonight and tease you with the e-book? you got the better end of the deal though, so many opportunities for comedic timing in this one that imagine the audio will be better than the print version.

I’m on board…reading Red Seas now so that will be perfect timing. Let the fun commence!

I just have to order it along with some films first… Otherwise, sign me up for another round of adventures.

Yay! My blog has fallen prey to inactivity so this will be excellent. I’m in :)

Excellent! welcome aboard everyone!

I’m in! :D

[…] Another reason, the one that has nothing to do with lack of sleep, for rereading is this: there is going to be a read-along!

Find out more about the read-along in, for example, here! […]


As you introduced me to the wonderful Gentleman Bastards in the first place, it would be rude for me to NOT take part in the read along!!!! :D

I am SO GLAD for the gentleman bastards and this read along to be back in my life. I’M IN!!!
