I got it day one. And rebought all the 78-88 stuff on wax. And as I go along I stop and listen to the record released during that time being covered in the book and listen to all the studio boots and live boots I have for that period. I'm in the Parade era right now. So close to the end of the book. I really like this version of the book. Much more than the original.

I might have both of the author's on board if we do this book thread. That would be really neat.

I'm interested..I got the kindle download and read it when it was released..I definitely will reread it...I don't have "possessed" but was able to get a copy from the local library...i thought that "rise" really benefitted from Laura being in the area and having access to local community...

Awesome sounds like it's a go! It will not start until next week. My book is suppose to be here on the 27th and this will give people time to get their's also.

I ordered mine yesterday, but I'm to cheap to do over night shipping, so it's suppose to be here by the 27th. sad

I've already read the book. I'm in for the debate. Will the authors be a part of this discussion? I hope we are still encouraged to freely state our sentiments on the book if they are. Will we be allowed to ask them questions if they're involved?
I just want you here, I just want you near me baby, cause I'm scared I'll cry, I love you like crazy.
