And I respect that 500 pages is a bit long, but for me, after just finishing Anna Karenina at 1070 pages, and just now starting a few days ago on the second Kingkiller chronicle The Wise Man's Fear which is about 1100 pages, 500 pages after that will feel like a breeze!
Ha! I expect you, Bookworm_Girl, Crowl, fbrII, GeneS, Hamlet53, holymadness, issybird, jemc, Jillbee, jsmack65, kimberlyp, Latinandgreek, peanut78, Quake1028, Synamon, Tarana, and voodoo_pepperweb—to have that massive tome read and to be ready to discuss it by the 20th of November. I'll be watching, and points will be taken off
And the rest of you, do as you can. I've already started, but I'm not yet past the first massive chapter!
