Help me catch back up with our book of the month program and make it awesome! Wouldn't it be awesome if each month we have hundreds of people on this website reading the same book around the same time and chatting about it?!

One could also ask the question: Are there books you wish were longer? I can think of several books that I wish never ended because of the beauty of the prose and/or the fascinating aspects of the premise. I can think of many books I've read that held me spellbound though they were very long and some shorter novels that seemed to drag on forever.
If a person chooses a book based upon how quickly one can get from one cover to the other I think that person is missing the whole point of reading.

Agree with you completly it's what's between the cover that counts not how long it takes to get from cover to cover
