    I want to read the book, but I am not sure I can keep up to your schedule . I think I should try it.

      I understand the reticence. This really averages to around 60 pages a week, and is a narrative so it’s a bit more easy to digest.

      For everyone leery of the schedule. My advice is to get the book now and start reading! That will put you a few weeks ahead, but don’t forget to take some notes for our discussions!
