I know I could've started a "spoiler" thread and maybe other fast readers would have joined me, but I didn't want to miss the whole-group read experience.
For my part, reading it in chunks certainly made the reading part more manageable, but I'm not sure it is the best for generating discussion. The Talk threads were pretty darn quiet except for the beginning and end. Which brings me to my second point:
For the middle two chunks, I thought going the open thread route might be best, but perhaps that was why (or at least a factor) enthusiasm dragged in the middle, as well.
>3 elizajanecurtis: It's good to know that the expanded time worked for some! Thanks for chiming in!
I'm putting a couple polls in my next post.
Stem: Does breaking the book up into sections, with discussion of a new section every week/two weeks work well for you?
Stem: Are open threads a good idea for One LibraryThing, One Book discussions?
My thought is that people could read a section, post about that section, then move on to the next section, etc. . . .
FWIW, I'm not really seeing enough discussion in any of these threads to be encouraged about these OLOB events . . . I really did think it was a good idea at the beginning, but doesn't seem to work in practice. Then again, the ReadaThings also seem to have gone the way of the dodo, so perhaps people just aren't willing to do general group reads anymore . . . :( Are group reads happening in other forums?
