We've been having a Rough Stone Rolling reading club over at Millennial Star but several other blogs have been commenting on it as well. I wanted to roll all these posts up into a directory that people can go to and see all the discussion. It's a great book and has engendered a lot of discussion at various blogs. I'll try and keep this page reasonably up to date with latest posts. Let me know if I miss you.
