Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Next month (June) we’ll be reading and discussing another Prometheus Award finalist:

Ready Player One — Ernest Cline’s genre-busting blend of science fiction, romance, suspense, and adventure describes a virtual world that has managed to evolve an order without a state and where entrepreneurial gamers must solve virtual puzzles and battle real-life enemies to save their virtual world from domination and corruption. The novel also stresses the importance of allowing open access to the Internet for everyone.

It’s currently available on Amazon in hardcover and Kindle ebook. The paperback version is available for pre-order with a release date of June 5th, so I recommend going with the Kindle version. Buy your copy today, via the affiliate links above, and help support our work here at Prometheus Unbound.

We’ll begin discussing the book on Friday, June 1st. Mark the date on your calendar!

You need not have voted to participate in the Lightmonthly Read discussion, but you do need to be registered and logged in on this site to access the book club’s dedicated forums.

It’s never too soon to start thinking about our July Lightmonthly Read. Nominations for it start on Friday, June 1st as well, so be prepared!


IMPORTANT NOTE: This may be the last mid-month Lightmonthly Read post. I don’t want to clutter up the site with three posts per month about our book club, so we’ll probably be scaling back to just one on the first of every month. It will include a recap of the previous month’s discussion, a reminder of the current month’s book, and an announcement that nominations are open for the coming month.

If you want to continue receiving these mid-month updates and reminders, sign up for our mailing list. We’ll let you know when it’s time to vote and what the nomination and voting results are via email on the 10th and 20th of every month. We’ll continue to post more frequent reminders on the major social networks.

For up-to-date information about our book club, you can always visit the Lightmonthly Read page.
