5 books, 7 months to go once Jan 6 hits.

26 Sundays after Sunday Jan 3. That'll likely be the start day.

So 3 weeks per book and we finish a week early.

Maybe we should start earlier?

I fear involving myself, in a "if I touch it, this might fail" kind of way but... for your information:

- When we initially started the Almanac, we were doing a chapter every week, which stopped in any consistency after I stopped making the threads (that's not true, locke, solo, and Tony P tried to keep it going). So I care not where you all do your reread but I would appreciate if you would share some of your intermittent thoughts to The Almanac: PON Edition/TAE Edition, in this, The Most Awesome of All Possible Series Rereads (until TUC and TSTSNBN respectively are released, I guess).

- On that note, a chapter a week wasn't enough; though, this could easily be inversely related to that being too much time.

- Is there a TSACast component :)?

My school break starts first week of December, so I'm game to begin then. I'm not sure how anyone else's reading habits go or when they're most liable to dig into it. It looks like we have a few folks interested, so maybe a more concrete plan will coalesce in coming days now that it has been broached.

Following each book seem appropriate?

I'll host, of course, but that depends on those not me partaking ;).

Glad our ineptitude in activating new members didn't stop you.

I'm halfway through TWP again, right now.

There are 92 chapters in the series and two short interludes.

There are about 32 weeks from today until the book comes out.  That means if we started lets say, next week, we would need to read 3 Chapters per week to finish early.

I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

I'm excited for this journey. Especially because without me, I can do nothing to fuck it up :).

I think three chapters a week is a pretty nice pace, since it allows us plenty of time to discuss each one and not have to speed into the next as much.

Not true. ;)

3 a week starting next week, for 6 months, sounds exhausting :P. But its the only way I'd ever do a full read before The Great Ordeal release.

It wouldn't be a slog if it was over quickly, now would it? ;)
