need 3 more people so we can wrap this up.

deadline will be end of feb. if everyone finishes before that, we'll obviously we don't need to keep waiting. we can of course keep discussing as we read, but need to be very careful with spoilers and such

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.

yeah, its officially heart of darkness.

deadline will be end of February. of course if we all finish ahead of time we don't have to wait.

and yeah, if you want to discuss the book as you read it, spoiler precautions will be needed. i'll post details in the OP later on.

I remember reading this book in high school and using the spark notes as a supplement. The book was good nonetheless!
