There hasn't been a lot of spirited debate about our next book so we've settled for reading Claire North's 84K.

What day should we start? Do we want to do a week or two cool down or do we jump straight into 84K next week?

84K can be found for less than 7 USD on Amazon.

The book on Kindle is 480 pages. Should we split it into 5 weeks of roughly 100 pages, last week is 80 pages?

We also need to settle on an Ursula K LeGuin book, if there's even enough support.

I'd be down with 84K.
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"
―Gene Wolfe, The Citadel of the Autarch

Good.

If it's not too soon I'd suggest starting 84K Monday the 19th of August.

Do you guys have a preference for a Ursula K LeGuin book? I've never read her so I'm game for Left Hand of Darkness or Wizard of Earth Sea.

I mean Earthsea is a number of books but IIRC the first one could be used as standalone.

I'm in for 84K as I only read it recently and I'll take part in the discussion even if I don't have time to read it fully again.

I'd suggest we read the first Earthsea and those of us who like it can continue the series in their own pace.

I am in for anything Le Guin. Earthsea sounds good.

I have read 84K. If I have time, I might chime in
