I chose those two since they were the most talked about so far and its made me very interested in reading them. I think it'll likely be Notes from the underground and heart of darkness, will tough to choose between the two once we get there.

So while we know we can also check out our public library (thanks doc) and some discussed the idea of sharing links, which is where my question lies. 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.

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. ;)
