I couldn't bring myself to read 32 chapters of a book I know is about to come out.
I kind of wish now that I hadn't. The pacing of only reading 3 chapters/week was off from how I'd normally be reading for myself. Also, in the interim of waiting for each new release, I perused the reader discussions taking place after each 3-chapter release, and I did not like that, but could not stay away. It detracted from my enjoyment of the first read-through as a single-user experience.

Noob-ish here. Read EG many times, but never anything else by OSC. Yesterday, however, I began reading Speaker for the Dead. It was a bit slow moving for me at first, but I'm very happy I pushed through to the end of the first chapter! I'm now up to Chapter 8. It is very rare that I find myself compelled to read through a fictional series (maintaining motivation beyond the first or second book). For instance, I've read The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, Fellowship of the Ring, and Two Towers multiple times, but never made it through Return of the King (strangely, The Silmarillion may be my most read book).
Other than that, I'm reading various texts on LaTeX (the markup language), Linux, and Operating Systems.
