I've put Quicksilver at the top of my stack of books. When do we want to start reading? Or should I have started already? :lol:

I'm almost halfway through Snow Crash now and it's pretty awesome!

I'll pick it up sometime in the next couple of days.

Now....How should we organize this? I'm not sure exactly how long the book is, but I figured we could start a thread for book discussion and discuss it in sections? Instead of just starting a thread and discussing any and all of it right away, maybe it would be better if we allotted a certain amount of time for each section of the book....does that make sense? Anyone have any other ideas on how we should handle the discussion?

I've never done a book club so I'm up for whatever reywas. Your way sounds nice and organized. The book by the way is something like 937 pgs according to the library.

My copy of the book is 456 pages. And it looks like the book is split into 3 main sections and then has a short section near the end. Perhaps we discuss each section as a whole? Or do we want to try to break it down more than that?

Oh interesting - only 456 pages? I better make sure what i put on hold at the library is not the large print edition. And I agree with dividing it up by it's natural sections.

From the summary I read about Quicksilver, I'm not sure it is my kind of book. I'm currently re-reading the dark tower anyways (and have stalled out, not much time lately), but if I finish that soon I might catch up with you all later on.

I'm sure by the time you finish it (and hopefully) start the last policeman (it sounded more of something I'd read anyways, so this order works nicely for me) I'll hopefully be done what I'm currently reading and have enough time to keep up.

I read "Gone" over this last weekend at the lake and would recommend it to anyone who likes the can't-put-it-down police procedurals. Great read for the beach, or the lake, or just for fun.

Cool--I am so close to being done with Snow Crash, but I might go ahead and start Quicksilver before I finish Snow Crash so I don't fall too far behind. Do you want me to make a separate thread for discussing Quicksilver?

Hmmm, so upon looking more closely at the book I've realized I was wrong about it being split into 3 sections (I was basing that off the table of contents...) so I'm not sure how you all want me to set up the discussion threads.

Do you want me to just leave it at one thread for the whole book and people can choose whether or not to read the thread? Or should I just pick page numbers and split the book into 3-parts that way?

I'm happy to do whichever so let me know what you all think. :)

I created a new forum for the book. Also, RM Book Club is now its own forum :) Looks like FH is going to create the threads for the discussions.....

Hmmmm, Juliet, does your copy of Quicksilver contain Quicksilver, King of the Vagabonds, and Odalisque? Anyone else also contain all of those?

I realized that my copy of Quicksilver was released after the first volume was split into three separate books.

So for clarification:
Quote:
The Baroque Cycle consists of several novels "lumped together into three volumes because it is more convenient from a publishing standpoint"; Stephenson felt calling the works a trilogy would be "bogus".[2]
Appearing in print in 2003 and 2004, the cycle contains eight books originally published in three volumes:
Quicksilver, Vol. I of the Baroque Cycle – Arthur C. Clarke Award winner, Locus Award nominee, 2004[3]
Book 1 – Quicksilver
Book 2 – The King of the Vagabonds
Book 3 – Odalisque

The Confusion, Vol. II of the Baroque Cycle – Locus Award winner
Book 4 – Bonanza
Book 5 – The Juncto

The System of the World, Vol. III of the Baroque Cycle – Locus Award winner, Arthur C. Clarke Award nominee, 2005[4]
Book 6 – Solomon's Gold
Book 7 – Currency
Book 8 – The System of the World

Let's pick a new book.... this one is so bad, I cannot even get past the first chapter. However, I do now have 12 books of Wheel of Time on my reading list :o
