Yup, we'll do all the canon books (i.e. everything but the Altermorphs), in order of publication.
To be honest Snoops, you should do Megamorphs/Chronicles over a month. So keep book of the week to the 54 main books and each month do one of the other 8 books.

Fair enough... suggestions are always appreciated!

If we allocate extra time to Megamorphs/Chronicles/Visser, that'll be good, since it'll make it easier to keep up. So does that mean we've got 3 more weeks before #8?

Also, it'd be cool if you could give us a heads-up when the next book will be a Chronicles. I have only a very vague idea of where they fall in the order of publication, since I usually just read them before #1.

It sounds like a good idea

I share your sentiment... it is hard to keep the pace so slow.

I decided to go ahead and just read at my own pace for a while and I just came back to see how far the Book of the Week had gotten. I was very surprised to see that you were only on book 7. It seems like it has been so long yet you are still at the very beginning of the series. I am in the middle of #28 now so it seems my pace is 4 times that of this forum. Is anyone else going at a faster pace. I would like to discuss as I read but I can't wait so long between books.

Lol. Get a good video game, and just be glad you have more free time than some of us.

Someone needs to work on that. Maybe with the re-releases, we'll see the release of some new and improved Animorph games? *crosses fingers*

Not a bad idea...but what if we pick the books randomly instead of going by the original order?
