    So to speak, I am subscribed to « Where are you in the book....» because I really read and enjoy my books... That is, this thread allows me highlight what seems to me a remarkable fact during the reading... Writing or Making a reading list out, it doesn't - necessarily - mean that someone has read his/her books . In fact, there are people at times leave his/her readings half finished o_O and other people :shifty Let us our imagination run wild !!
    A prolonged « drought » in - Where are you in the book - as of 2017....few brainstorm with the exception of...
    All in all, draw your own conclusions about the key message of my spiel . But to this day, are there a true readers or not readers among us ( in this forum ) ??

    I'm trying to picture Sparky as a carrier pidgeon and it's not working.

    On a more serious note: I agree with Peder's post earlier, not a lot of people seem to want to make the effort to read a book and discuss it. Probably why the book of the month section has never been much of a success.
    I'd happily revive it by the by but would need participants and not just a few lost souls shouting in the desert.

    James Joyce has been eating up a lot of my time as of late.

    Try to visualise him drinking a red bull can ( cause gives you wings ) and at the same time, unfolding a world map . Can you see him now ?? Better than Superman, our dear carrier pigeon . Peder and myself gave him some coordinates and he brought us the first « reinforcements » :D
    Re-openning BOTM is a great idea, I usually read non-fiction books but I am willing read fiction books so that it doesn't dwindle the participation . Maybe, with any luck, I can achieve that someday you read First on the rope or Conquistadors of the Useless or any mountainering/ski book :)
