We can start now.

(Sorry I forgot about it for awhile. I only just started reading again after a couple weeks where I just couldn't pick a book up. Thankfully it seems to be over! :text-woo: )
Great! I finished my current book, so I can start it today :)

I opened a thread. :)

Yay! :D
Sometimes you need to take peoples' minds off their problems if you want those problems to resolve themselves.

Lol-Totally cool. Me too, and me too. Yep, we can start, but is there any chance you could refresh my memory on the book we chose to read along?

The first post lists those books. You can also suggest books you want to read with others, and they will be added to the list. :tiphat:
