Vineland for discussion with amazon link
    #642857 - 05/26/02 09:26 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Vineland at Amazon Link now supports shroomery.

OK, here is the link to Vineland. $10.50 New. There are several used copies available, but they may not be the same edition as the new one. In the interest of most of us having the same book, I am going to buy the new one from amazon. I suggest you do the same. Having the same copies will insure a smoother discussion especially when refering to specific pages, etc.

If you do not have ten dollars, you can certainly borrow a copy from your school or local public library. It may not impede discussion at all.

I believe Doobie set the beginning of discussion for June 20th. So, let's get started reading!

Only 3?!!!

I suggest you try your local Barnes and Nobles.....if it takes a while longer, we can wait........Everyone interested in reading should have the chance to read it...

I have at least two copies I can send out if you absolutely can not find a copy.

Let me know.

hang in there WCR.....do a few searches on line...I think there is a chapter by chapter analysis that can be very helpful over at moderworld.com

I'll find it and post the link.

Do you like it so far?
