The Tunnel Big Read?

If you’re on my Twitter you might have seen me post this last week:

People were interested. So I’m throwing it to you all. Is this something people on this blog would like to see happen?

If you don’t know what The Tunnel is, look here.

Hopefully. Hope there theren’t any prerequisites.

Yes, very much would like to tackle this in a big read

Date the entries for the link “look here”.

Count me in!!!!!!!!!! I’ve always wanted to read this beast!

Have fun. “Gass” being the operative word concerning this book.

would make for a great big read.

Just bought this a week ago. Let’s do it!

Definitely interested! Would also like to nominate HOPEFUL MONSTERS by Nicholas Mosley as possible future BR…
