Relly, I know that you seem to be enjoying posting the new chapter for each day, but since no one seems to be responding to them, they're kind of just distancing the thread from the actual discussion that had been taking place before all the day-by-day posts started, regardless of how old that discussion might be. Because each of your day posts have the day's date on them, the likelihood of them being used down the road for someone else starting the read through isn't all that great. This was awesome when people were actually commenting on them, but now they're starting to get kind of spammy looking.

Hey! I've been posting in the off chance that someone would catch up, and for tracking purposes. How can we go about this? Is discussion lagging behind?

(also having a difficult time keeping up here as well...)
