If you've already read the book and would just like to skip ahead to where we are that's fine. No points will be taken off. :)

I've read it - years ago. So I'll see how fast I get on this weekend. If I'm to slow I will skip and join in where you are now.

I've started reading Les Mis in French this weekend. I'm a rather fast reader so perhaps I'll join in too as soon as I catch up to where you are now.

I am so sold on this--just picked up a fresh copy on my way back from work (had to leave books behind when I moved--v. traumatic). It's... you should see this book. It's undefiled. There are no nicks in the pages, no dents in the cover, no coffee stains absolutely anywhere

Gonna catch up this weekend--see you all Monday!

Awesome! And feel free to "resurrect" old threads - just because we're finishing up Argot doesn't mean we don't want to hear your thoughts about Fantine's dick of a boyfriend :)

Oh god I did and now the order of the threads is all jumbled. Forgive me! D:

Some of them were jumbled anyway - that is why they are labeled with the section and book number :)
