I'll look for it this week at the library.

I'll have a copy by the weekend.  And, no, I didn't realize that it was that long.

I should be able to start it early next week. Looking forward to reading and discussing with everyone.

Got my copy this afternoon at a used book store.  Mine is only about 550 pages.  I sat in my car in the rain, waiting for friends and began.  I'm already enjoying it.  Now back to finish a non-classic that I'm halfway through.

I ordered my copy on the 29th and the person still hasn't mailed it.  Crap.

My copy is also 550 pages (Oxford classics edition).  I'm really enjoying it so far too.

First Mill on the Floss discussion will be held May 18.

This will give everyone enough time to (a) acquire a copy, and (b) read the first 1/3 of the book.

My copy is roughly 600 pages and the end of Book 2 is page 210. How does that sound for a break point?
