Pre-release chat!


FYI, these discussions will have spoilers for books 1-4 but are spoiler free for the new short stories, "Knife Dance" and "Wine Shop," and the "Thick as Thieves" arc.

Now, you don't have to stay 100% in sync with this schedule. I imagine people can either read ahead or read the section and discuss it the following week. Whatever works for you. The break weeks are there for this purpose. If anyone falls behind, you have some time to catch up. Reminders will be posted about the chats in the Conspiracy Room. Remember, you have to be a member of the community to use the chat room, however an LJ account or community membership is not needed to participate in the read-along itself.

Let me know of I need to elborate on anything for you. I hope everyone has fun. Time to crack open those books!
