The November book of the month is going to by The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.

I'm going to hold the discussions for it on the first three Sundays in November.

On November 11th I'll start the discussion for the first sixth of the book. (My book does not have chapter numbers, and has 196 pages. The first sixth would be the first 31 pages.)

On November 18th I'll start the discussion for the first half of the book (the first 101 pages in my book)

On November 25th I'll start the discussion for the whole book.

If you read the book before I post the discussion threads, here is a tip: Take a break at the points I have posted above, and get on computer and type your thoughts up. Then, save them and post them when I start the discussion. That will help because your views of the book may change once your read more of it and you will lose the chance to post your thoughts about just the first sixth/half of the book.

If you don't already have the book, you can get it from a local library, a local bookstore, or you can order it from Amazon.

HI I'm new. Does the discussion happen at a certain time (real time) or just through the discussion board? I am on the East Coast for time purposes :)

there is just aboard that you discuss it on. some people read faster than others so it gives people all the same opportunities to discuss it.
