Official KTT2 Book Club | Feb 2020 | Dune | WEEK 3 🚨

    BOOK ONE:
    DUNE by FRANK HERBERT


    READING SCHEDULE: February 1st 2020 - March 28th 2020

    So here's a loose schedule we can try and follow. There are three books but technically no real chapters. There are interludes of commentary between each "chapter", which is how we'll measure progress week to week. Tried spoiler tagging the below, but the formatting gets all f***ed up with quotes.

    1 Feb: From the beginning up to and including the section starting with "Many have marked the speed with which Muad'Dib learned the necessities of Arrakis"

    8 Feb: From "What had the Lady Jessica to sustain her in her time of trial?" to "Greatness is a transitory experience."

    15 Feb: From "There is no escape, we pay for the violence of our ancestors." to the end of Book 1.

    22 Feb: From the start of Book 2 to "We came from Caladan--a paradise world for our form of life."

    29 Feb: From "Family life of the Royal Creche is difficult for many people to understand, but I shall try to give you a capsule view of it." to "My father, the Padishah Emperor, was 72 yet looked no more than 35 the year..."

    7 March: From "God created Arrakis to train the faithful" to the end of Book 2.

    14 March: From the start of Book 3 to "When law and duty are one, united by religion, you never become fully conscious, fully aware of yourself."

    21 March: 190 pages left (give or take; based on which book you have). Read until finished.

    28 March: Appendices and Glossary

    If anybody is reading the 50th Anniversary version of the book, lmk and I can send you the actual page numbers to be read weekly.

    F*** yeah!
    Essketit!
    I read Dune like over 10 years ago so I'm basically fresh on this hoe

  • I'll bite. Might as well make it month to month.

  • in

    I'll bite. Might as well make it month to month.

    Right on. Didn’t know whether folks liked having a weekly schedule or not. Monthly makes it easy af so I’m with it

  • Was considering getting this just this morning so I’m in

  • Figured we’d start in Feb and give ourselves a month to read? Seems reasonable enough.

    Do we wanna discuss during reading?
    As in "this week we covered this and this, let's discuss"?
    Or if somebody wants to discuss we go in a format of "I'm on chapter 3 and spoiler" ?
    And I'm dine to read the s*** in Feb.
    Oof book club, hype!

    That’s why I was thinking that maybe we all read a certain amount of chapters every week, so that we can discuss them. Last KTT book club split it up by chapters I believe

    Depends. When i'm at work I usually listen to some audio-books. But during my free time, i'll try to read a few chapters of something every day. I'm also heavy into comics. Reading all psychical copies

  • In, been needing to get around to it anyways

    Once you're able to focus in on a book, not much can beat it bro. Nothing is better than the power of your imagination, when it comes to reading novels.

    Shoooot, at work it can be tough. Muhfuckas be bothering me and s*** all the time LOL. Luckily I have my own desk and cube, so for the most part i'm good. I don't try to listen to anything too dense or crazy though because it's easy for me to lose my train of thought.

  • Add me to OP too

  • In, I've been meaning to reread Dune for a while. This'll make sure I dont forget

    Down for that

  • EuFronk

    Down for that

    Ya'll trying to split it up by chapters per week? or just give us a month to read, and use spoilers to talk about s*** in between?

    I'd prefer just giving us a month and using spoilers to talk whenever. Maybe a loose weekly guideline at most idk

    What kind of genre are you most interested in? I mainly ready Sci-Fi and Fantasy stuff. Been reading Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut, and it's been f***ing dope so far.
