Vineland for discussion with amazon link
    #642857 - 05/26/02 07:26 PM (21 years, 9 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.

There's a brief plot synopsis in another thread called "Vineland" by PGF in this forum.
