Have people started reading The World Without Us? Will we be ready to discuss around March 20? ecodork will start a thread for the discussion on or about March 20 if people will be ready by that time.<br><br>
I will finish reading it tonight or tomorrow morning depending on distractions. I look forward to the discussion.

It's level of being interesting comes and goes but it's worth finishing.

I haven't started it yet - I mentioned before that I was studying for an exam that took precedence. I might sit out the first book and start with ya'll on the second one.

I haven't started it yet (don't have it yet even) but will probably start this weekend, once I get it. I expect to be able to finish it in time unless it's mind-numbingly boring. I don't think it will be.

We will miss your input on the first one but the exam definitely takes precedence.

I am just not enjoying this at all. For me, it's like reading an instruction manual. I don't have a little scientific brain. I keep finding myself doing that thing where I'm reading, but then my mind wanders off and I find I've just been staring at the same page for several minutes.

It feels like I'm being passive-aggressively scolded. I want to tell the guy that I didn't <i>invent</i> plastic, so get of my damn back.

Then just wait until you get to the Texas oil chapter. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I'm finished.<br><br>
If you need me, I'll be in my cave not using nuclear- or coal-generated electricity nor anything with petroleum or plastic in it.

I've just started on plastics. It's hard to read just before I go to sleep. I think I read 2 pages the other night, and then it was snooze-ville for me.<br><br>
I think this weekend will see it finished.
