Added a new PDF to my collection and it's something I've wanted for a very long time! The Kung-sun Warlords of Liao-tung by K. H. J. Gardiner. It may kill my eyes being in Wade-Giles, but I am going to read and re-read this bad boy over and over until I digest every bit of information on this insane family of would-be Emperors!

I have Fire but I’ve read little of it. We should start a book club so I stop procrastinating. :mrgreen:


OK, this. I've been bogged down with essays but they are all due in on Tuesday. Would you like to give it a go? Like read a chapter a week and then share our thoughts in a thread? Anyone else is off course welcome to join in!
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

Look at these mega nerds forming a book club! ...Where do I sign up? :lol: I've been meaning to actually read the whole thing one day, and this would give me that incentive.

I thought you might say that! Pending Jia's agreement shall we aim to read Chapter 1 by a week Monday (as in 25th)? I'll start a thread then and share my thoughts and then anyone else who wants to contribute can do so as well!

Book club! :lol:

I think a chapter per week will work great. And if we find that we’re moving too slowly, we can adjust the pace. Feel free to start the book club thread. :mrgreen:
