Thinking about joining us for June's OLOB selection, The Night Watch? Chime in here!

May 21, 2015, 1:50pm Top

I started reading The Night Watch long ago and somehow got diverted from finishing it; so this is a good opportunity to pick it up again.

May 21, 2015, 1:59pm Top

Officially and unofficially, I'm excited to be reading this one! This is my first Sarah Waters novel, although she's been on my TBR list for a while.

May 21, 2015, 2:00pm Top

This is my first time on OLOB...looking forward to the discussion.

May 21, 2015, 3:51pm Top

My first time here too. I saw that it was the next book and since I have it, seems like it would be fun to join. I've read Tipping the Velvet and The Little Stranger and liked both.

May 21, 2015, 4:24pm Top

this has been on my "to read" list for a very long time. Started once and couldn't get into it. I did read "the paying guests" this year and it was pretty good. we shall see!!

May 21, 2015, 4:46pm Top

I LOVE Sarah Waters, and I particularly love this book. Bring it on!

May 21, 2015, 5:16pm Top

Looks like I've got a week to track a copy down, to have time to start before June.

I haven't read in time with others since high school (college as I recall we had to be done by a certain date and then discuss the entire novel) so this will be interesting.

May 21, 2015, 6:28pm Top

I've been meaning to re-read this book for some time, so this is a good excuse.

It's my first participation in OLOB.

May 21, 2015, 8:13pm Top

This is my first participation in OLOB. I am eager to get started

May 21, 2015, 8:37pm Top

Yay! I am glad that this group is back. I have managed to read all the books put forth by the group and am going off in search of this one ASAP!

May 22, 2015, 12:29am Top

This is my first participation in OLOB. Looking forward to the discussions.

May 22, 2015, 4:18am Top

Hi all! I'd like to join this group read!

May 22, 2015, 9:14am Top

It's nice to have a start here. I am an English learner and first introduced to this group. I hope i can get my commitment of readibg through and expressing the points of view. Nice to see you guys !!

May 22, 2015, 9:54am Top

I think I will give this a whirl!

May 22, 2015, 10:02am Top

Always a good reason to read, enjoy time spent and hopefully help to make the book popular.

Edited: May 22, 2015, 10:07am Top

Excited to see so many members joining us for the first time for a novel by one of my favorite authors! I've read all of Sarah Waters's books so far and this is actually the one about which I remember the least, so I'm glad for the prompt to re-read it.

May 22, 2015, 10:33am Top

Interested in joining this group. I've never been part of a book group but I read so much. I look forward to having others to share the topic with. So excited.

May 22, 2015, 11:45am Top

Never joined a book group before--looking forward to a new experience, and I have read and enjoyed other books by this author!

May 22, 2015, 12:06pm Top

Hello! I haven't had a group read since I was in school many years ago. I'm looking forward to trying this, thanks for orchestrating it.

May 22, 2015, 1:12pm Top

I've already read it, so I might participate in the discussion.

May 22, 2015, 1:39pm Top

I'm disappointed that it wasn't the Terry Pratchett work Night Watch.

May 22, 2015, 3:24pm Top

I really would like to join the group. I haven't read the book but I'm sure I can have the 1-3 chapters done. I love reading.

May 22, 2015, 8:29pm Top

Hoping to join have not read books by this author.

May 22, 2015, 9:08pm Top

This is my first time at this site. I hope I will know how to do it correctly.

May 23, 2015, 9:38am Top

Like others I've had this on my bookshelf but just haven't gotten to it. Looks like this is a good time!

May 23, 2015, 1:18pm Top

This will be my first OLOB. I have not read Sarah Waters before; having just found a copy i will be beginning this day.

May 23, 2015, 1:22pm Top

Downloaded the Kindle e-book TODAY ! w00t!!!

May 23, 2015, 3:51pm Top

This is one of two Sarah Waters for me, the other being The Little Stranger. When I went back to see my comments on Nightshift I saw a lot of confusion, so I think this would be a good time and place for me to do a reread.....where I can see the comments of others.
The first week of June is Mary Hocking reading week so I will be joining in after that.
Thank you for setting this up. I look forward to it.

Edited: May 25, 2015, 1:34pm Top

A great opportunity to reread this book. This was the first of Sarah Waters' novels I read. I have recently read The Paying Guest which was a book of two halves for me.

May 24, 2015, 6:00pm Top

I really liked the Night Watch and look forward to discussing it with the group.

May 24, 2015, 9:47pm Top

Hi, Since I was just searching thru my unread books on my shelves to what to read next since I have my regular book club June book and my audio book going, I try to have a 3rd book in the mix of something I have on my shelf (good or not, I have quite a few in currently reading- pile and not always interested in those...) I was pleasantly surprised to see I have this title in my unread shelf and so... I look forward to reading it with the group!

May 25, 2015, 1:01am Top

This is my first OLOB, looking forward to it. Sarah Waters has been on my "to read" list.

May 25, 2015, 8:12am Top

This is also my first time on OLOB, looking forward to reading people's thoughts on The Night Watch.

May 25, 2015, 10:58am Top

My first time doing this too, love the look of this book, and the timing for summer break! Happy reading everyone! :-)

May 26, 2015, 5:56am Top

This is my first time doing this. Very excited to read 'The Night Watch'. I do not own this one but I am going to request it from my library right now.

May 26, 2015, 4:53pm Top

Hello everyone! This is also my first time with OLOB, and I am very excited to read The Night Watch with you all! I recently read The Paying Guests and Fingersmith for my 2015 category challenge, and I enjoyed both. Happy reading!

May 27, 2015, 8:51pm Top

I was surprised to see that my library has 5 copies of this book available and no holds so I'm in. I read Fingersmith a long time ago and remember liking it a lot but not much else about it. Looking forward to joining this group.

May 27, 2015, 10:10pm Top

I look forward to discussing this book with everyone. I also read Fingersmith a long time ago and the book was totally engaging. I am sure this book will be a great read.

May 30, 2015, 8:27am Top

First time for Sarah Waters for me too and first time for OLOB as well. Loving the idea of joining this challenge.

May 31, 2015, 8:19am Top

New author - check.
New book - check.
New reading group - I'm in!

May 31, 2015, 6:26pm Top

Same here! I'm looking forward to reading and discussing this book with you.

Jun 1, 2015, 10:41am Top

Just bought the Audible version and started it this morning.

I am looking forward to the discussion

Jun 1, 2015, 11:29am Top

This will be my first OLOB, and my first Waters novel. Very excited to join the discussion! Just started reading last night. :)

Jun 1, 2015, 12:05pm Top

Super excited for this OLOB! I read Tipping The Velvet and it was, well, life-changing, so I'm excited to get around to more Sarah Waters.

Taking time out of racing through a series of books, so I have high hopes.

Jun 2, 2015, 2:57pm Top

I am really exciting about joining OLOB. It is a first time in joining a book group anywhere. It is nice that I can put down my impressions in written form. I would like to give back to this site as I win many books through librarything.com. I read on 4 different books at any given time. I am trying to catch up on all the book from librarything.com.

Jun 2, 2015, 5:21pm Top

I've not read any of Sarah Waters' books, nor ever done a group read before. Looking forward to it!

Jun 2, 2015, 6:46pm Top

I just started the audiobook version from the library. I'll be going on vacation so commuting time will cut out and I may need ot switch to the book, but the library had it on the shelf last time I was there. I ought to be able to finish some version during the group read.

Jun 9, 2015, 9:56pm Top

Hi! Just started the book today. I'm late to the party but I'll try to catch up! This is my first OLOB. I read Tipping the Velvet and Fingersmith, ages ago, I remember really enjoying both, so I expect this one will be great too.
I'm listening on audiobook while doing craft work, which is my favorite way to "read" lately. Hope I can get caught up and participate with the group!

Jun 25, 2015, 7:22am Top

Hello, I'm joining the party (very) late - I loved Tipping the Velvet and most of Fingersmith (the final act was a bit overwrought) a couple of years ago, and I found The Night Watch in my local charity shop so I'm looking forward to playing catch up!

Jun 25, 2015, 2:19pm Top

Just downloaded it on my Kindle - will start reading today!!

Jun 25, 2015, 2:35pm Top

Finished this last week. Couldn't remember where I had seen this book recommended - then I got your email for discussion. :-) "Ohhh ya" I said. Anyway, looking forward to reading and entering into the discussion.

Jun 25, 2015, 6:39pm Top

Ordering the book now!
