How fast do we want to read this? Here’s the table of contents:

Prologue: p5 – 10 pages
Chapter 1: p15 – 40 pages
Chapter 2: p55 – 53 pages
Chapter 3: p108 – 42 pages
Chapter 4: p150 – 38 pages
Chapter 5: p188 – 38 pages
Chapter 6: p226 – 37 pages
Chapter 7: p263 – 54 pages
Chapter 8: p317 – 61 pages
Chapter 9: p378 – 29 pages
Ending: p407 – 7 pages
(book ends p414, no afterword)

If 40-50 pages a week is OK we could roll the prologue and chapter 1 into one week, and chapter 9 and the ending into one week, and otherwise do a chapter a week ? Or I can look for split points, eg in chapter 8 which is the longest.

… there’s no notification for edits. :man_facepalming:

Anyway, thank you!

Combining the prologue and ch1 as well as ch9 and the ending sounds good to me.

We’ve had crazy long chapters before, and this time there’s a lot of shorter weeks as well, so I don’t think it’ll be necessary to further split even chapter 8… That said, if anyone would like to do that, I’m certainly not against it!

Sounds good to me

I agree. That will make for a nine week schedule, with the last week being the week of April 10th.
