Thinking about joining us for June's OLOB selection, The Night Watch? Chime in here!
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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!
This is my first participation in OLOB. Looking forward to the discussions.
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 !!
Always a good reason to read, enjoy time spent and hopefully help to make the book popular.
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.
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.
Never joined a book group before--looking forward to a new experience, and I have read and enjoyed other books by this author!
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.
I'm disappointed that it wasn't the Terry Pratchett work Night Watch.
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.
This is my first time at this site. I hope I will know how to do it correctly.
Like others I've had this on my bookshelf but just haven't gotten to it. Looks like this is a good time!
This will be my first OLOB. I have not read Sarah Waters before; having just found a copy i will be beginning this day.
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.
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.
I really liked the Night Watch and look forward to discussing it with the group.
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!
This is my first OLOB, looking forward to it. Sarah Waters has been on my "to read" list.
This is also my first time on OLOB, looking forward to reading people's thoughts on The Night Watch.
My first time doing this too, love the look of this book, and the timing for summer break! Happy reading everyone! :-)
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.
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.
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.
First time for Sarah Waters for me too and first time for OLOB as well. Loving the idea of joining this challenge.
Same here! I'm looking forward to reading and discussing this book with you.
Just bought the Audible version and started it this morning.
I am looking forward to the discussion
This will be my first OLOB, and my first Waters novel. Very excited to join the discussion! Just started reading last night. :)
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.
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.
I've not read any of Sarah Waters' books, nor ever done a group read before. Looking forward to it!
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.
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!
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.
