Thanks for letting me know, Chris!

I won't be there tonight. I am out of town, so I won't be joining until next Sunday the 18th.

Hey there, book clubbers! Are any of you planning on joining me for tonight's meeting to discuss Chapter 5? No one else has popped onto Fuze these past two Tuesdays, so I'd rather not worry about having a meeting if no one is going to join me. We could just use the Sunday meeting times to chat about these last 4 chapters. Please let me know if you still want to have a Wednesday meeting.

Hola todos! See below for the Fuze link for today's discussion of Chapter 4 of Earth in Humans Hands. We'll be meeting in about 45 minutes (at 13:00 Pacific, 16:00 Eastern). Looking forward to chatting then!

Hey there book lovers! I hope some of you who had fallen behind and needed to catch up have had a chance to read Chapter 4. We'll have our first discussion on Chapter 4 in just a little over an hour (fuze link below). We'll also meet again this Sunday to chat about the chapter, for those of you who aren't quite there yet or can't meet tonight. Cheers all!

Not yet, sadly. I'm trying to crunch out a paper on some of my graduate work right now, so I haven't found the time to re-cap everything we've discussed. However, I'll try my best to have something together soon (most likely a Google Doc with notes from each of our discussions on the chapters). Let's take a break this week and catch up next week on Chapter 4. That'll give some of you some extra time to catch up with where we are.

I will be needing to catch up. Is there a summary of what has been done, so far!

I'd be fine with skipping today and aiming for next week to catch up on Chapter 4. Do you think you'll be able to keep up with the reading between your travels?
Comment by Chris Crawford on June 4, 2017 at 11:02am

Skipping today would be great for me. But honestly, I have two trips in the next two weeks so I'm not sure I will get any better at keeping up. It's been a small group with some good conversation though so I'd like to stay with it. What are your thoughts on that?

Comment by Graham E. Lau on June 4, 2017 at 10:50am

Thanks for letting us know, Chris! Do you still need some more time on Chapter 4? We're just about halfway through the book, so now might be a decent time to catch up. Would anyone be opposed to stepping our reading/discussions back one week? We could skip today's meeting and then have Chapter 4 discussions this coming Wednesday and Sunday. That way everyone has time to catch up. Let me know what you guys think. I'd rather keep us all together in the reading if possible.
