Everybody check Worldcat to see if it can identify a library near you which has it.

You may also wish to check local area school libraries. I suspect that some of them may have it (though school policies vary widely on whether members of the surrounding community are allowed to check out books, of course).

Also look for it online - that's where I read it. Google 'read The Briar King online free' and something should come up.

Edit: turns out that was a deal lasting only for the summer. I think I downloaded the PDF and saved it - I'll try to make it available by next Tuesday, when I get back to work.

Worldcat was most helpful. Our nearest copy is thirty miles away.

Bleh.

Note to self: must find the local library. I have just relocated, and I have no idea where it is. *prays to God it is better stocked than her last library*

Picked mine up at the library so I am ready to start reading. Are we still aiming for discussion on the 17th or later for people that haven't found it yet?

Since my library has still to supply me with my copy, this week is officially for obtaining the book. From the 15th onwards, is the official time to read it. Discussion will begin on the 22nd.

I am going out on a limb here, and assuming that no-one has finished reading the book who was able to obtain it?

Or are we feeling very shy?

I'm about two chapters shy of the end, but I won't have time to finish it until Saturday.

I finished late Sunday night I just didn't feel like posting first. I have an easier time responding to something than giving a general impression of something unprompted. I can wait if others are still reading, there were a couple spots I wanted to read again anyway.

My bad guys, I'm going to have to sit this one out. I was not able to get my hands on a copy.
