Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. On May 1, we’re saying goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Fiction-fanatic:

 

The Crown Conspiracy 

 

Avempartha  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also saw a post where The Road was mentioned

The Road 

 

I know a lot of people loved this book but to be honest I disliked it to a degree not matched by other books I read.  Still it would provoke some interesting conversation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

==========================================

 

The Road is the second feature for the group for the month of July. Paul should be putting the new thread up this weekend.

 

Have your read the Sullivan books? He was very high on our list of books to pick for discussion. If you did, we would like your opinion as to whether it would make for a lively discussion. We try to pick books that none of us have read before so we can speculate and be surprised, but then we have to second guess whether a new book will be worthwhile or not.

 

===============================

 

I might also add that The Name of the Wind is our pick for discussion in August.

Nadine is right – The Road thread will be up in a few days. And this book is arguably the most polarizing read to come along in years – people either seem to ABHOR it or really love it. Should be an interesting thread – I just started reading it today!

Well I'll be on vacation next week and I make it a point to not usually get on-line when I'm at home, but I'll be making an exception for The Road.

Re: Epic Mystery/Adventure Fantasy Books Suggestions

I was wondering what size book you have for The Name of the Wind.  I saw two at the store when I went this last time.  There was one that was the small, fat paperback but there was also one that was a little bigger in length and thinner in paperback.  I think the bigger, thinner one is the one everyone probably has, but I wanted to check this way we can try to be on the same page numbers when discussing.

I think mine is the small fat but I'm not sure. It has a total of 722 pages and cost $7.99.

 

But I don't think you can get it anymore. It looks like they have reprinted the small fat, raised the price to $8.99 and added 14 pages to it for a total of 736.

 

Small-Fat

 

The bigger, thinner one is 672 pages and costs $12.80. I don't think you can win with this one! They have too many reprints out there.

 

Bigger-Thin

 

I also got the unabridged CD,  which is really inexpensive for such a long book. It probably is cheaper because it is MP-3 on CD. I don't  know what that means but it seems to work fine on my CD player and has all the track breaks.

 

MP-3 on CD version

 

Find out what the others have and go with that one. They are probably buying the newer books while I bought mine several months ago. If it becomes a problem, I'll get a newer reprint.

I've got the early version. So what's in those 14 pages?

I don't think anything has been added or lost. It is probably just slightly different "spreading" of the text in the reprinting. Mine ends with the Epilogue. With a 14 extra page spread, they can charge an extra dollar. :smileywink:

Hey guys, I hope you don't mind, I copied the parts of the posts regarding Name of the Wind to here so we can try to discuss the reading schedule on it.  Trying to keep it all together for us so we may be able to find it.

 

I would like to break it up into reading sections so we can talk about it.  I kind of enjoy just discussing the parts we read then just talking about them. There may not be much speculation like our past books but just talking about them helps.  Along with incase I have missed something in the read that one of you pick up.  We could divide it into 4 or 5 parts since it is such a large book then talk on it, if we happen to get a cliffhanger then good but if not that is okay with me.

Totally cool, Melhay! I don't mind you moving around my posts :smileywink: LOL!!!

 

Anyways, yes I agree, even if there's not a ton of speculation it'll still be better to spilt it up and talk through it like we have, so we won't miss any important details when all is said and done ( this is a trilogy and the ending is kind of a cliffhanger in itself, I think, and we are left with a lot to think about). Plus, this book is a master piece (IMO) and so it deserves a full on discussion...LOL! So now it's just up to Nadine, but I'm sure she'll be game....LOL!!

Good idea, Melissa, moving the discussion over to here. Yes, I think we should break it up. I really wass kind of dreading the idea of reading a whole long book and keeping my mouth shut until the end!  :smileymad: 

 

So why don't we just divide it into four parts, one part for each week. It is 722 pages and that comes to 180 pages per week or roughly 25 pages per day. There are 92 chapters plus a Prologue. So why don't we keep it simple. Unless someone knows of some natural breaking point we can simply do 25 chapters per week.

 

Week 1: Prologue through Chapter 25

Week 2: Chapter 26 to 50

Week 3: Chapter 51 to 75

Week 4: Chapter 76 to 92

 

We mark the header with the chapter span in case there are spoilers. We may have more readers for this book. A lot of people have posted on other threads that they are reading or have read or are planning to read this book, so the headers will probably be useful to a lot of other people in the "silent majority" as well.

Yeah, we like to talk about the books too.  I don't like not sharing before the end.

 

The breakup looks good to me, if no one else has a suggestion.  Are we looking at the Friday endings? That would be the 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st.  Would that work?  How about that the month ends perfectly on a Friday.  Or do you want to start early on the book and end on 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th, leaving the last week for what ever we want to discuss?

 

I kind of like the first one for us, with finishing Warbreaker and with Sword of Shannara also, but it is up to you all I am flexable with what I am reading.

Good idea, Melissa! Friday endings look perfect.

 

Whoops! Error - error. But I can still edit. Wrong month on calendar. We are reading this in August. 

 

Week 1: Prologue through Chapter 25 - Discussion starts 7th

Week 2: Chapter 26 to 50 -Discussion starts 14th

Week 3: Chapter 51 to 75 - Discussion starts 21th

Week 4: Chapter 76 to 92 - Discussion starts 28th

 

The last set of chapters only covers 128 pages and we always sprint to the end. This will also gives us some extra wiggle room as we move into the September books.

 

How does that set with you Krista and the rest of you who will be joining us?

Lets keep an open mind to see what Paul comes up with as stopping points in the book also.  He may find some good points for us, like he did with Warbreaker.

 

We have time to think on what he says. Before we start, even if we get started we will still be okay.
