    I'm currently reading The Left Hand of Darkness by U. Le Guin. Fascinating read so far.
    I have also had a peep at Simak's The Werewolf Principle.
    What about You?

    Not reading any prose at the moment, but the next novel I'll start will be the book club selection for September.

    I'm reading the sample of Rite of Passage.

    Consider Phlebas is $2.99 today on Amazon US.

    And...? Will you read it?

    I'm almost finished with The Left Hand of Darkness and I'll be also starting Rite of Passage this weekend.

    How are you getting on with Neverness?

    Still reading it. I wish someone would read the sample and discuss it.

    Not far. It's the beginning of the school year, here, and everyone is trying to set into new routines. This means I haven't had the chance to read in a few days. Hopefully, I will get to finish it this weekend.

    I'm about 5 hours into Babylon's Ashes, Expanse #6. Slow going so far .. got a feeling that this is going to be one of those books which is there to set up later books. Still enjoying it though!

    Give me a couple of days, Ken.
    Maybe @Kanly or @Boreas have already started it? @hrafnwasser will you be joining us?

    I know the feeling. A very organized chaos...

    Cool, it worked. But I've decided to send a message. Check your inbox Kanly.

    I'm about 10% in Rite of Passage. A very engaging story so far.

    Been slow to get a move on with reading. Was lazy enough to not want to concentrate on anything so picked up Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire (Star Wars) over the weekend for a re-read. But will definitely be starting Rite of Passage tonight!

    Over halfway through Rite of Passage: I have been reading a bit during my lunch break. I’m afraid I’m bored with it…

    The premise of Rite has put me off. Not reading it.

    Not sure what you guys are on about. This is a fantastic book! Completely different to the kind of book I usually go for, but that's the beauty of book clubs I guess. I've been reading at every possible moment .. I read one page 8 times!

    This is the version you guys are reading, right?
