When link sharing, can we post the links right on this forum? Or should we create some external method of sharing links? I just wanna make sure we're not violating some realgm rules or gonna get this board in trouble somehow.


i'm not sure how ty and slava want to enforce it, but i can always receive links if u find it online and i can relay it to whoever needs it. last night i found book of basketball online incase i needed it. gonna look for some of the leading candidates after dinner.

Ayo BT, don't leave man. we can always go into stealth mode if we can't contribute anything. btw, I'm down with any book . :D

regarding link sharing, just to be safe, I suggest Ty, Kilroy, or any participating mods to pm us the links.

I've already found several links to Heart of Darkness from a simple copy and paste the title and author into Google search. lol

As for me, I'm going to the local library to pick up a copy and to check out the local talent. ;)

So it's official? Heart of darkness??

If so i'm about to order it on the ipad...

So we should at the very lest have a month to read the book. I'm a full time student plus I'm in the military so the only time I have to really read it is during lunch and before I hit the sack at night.
