Out of curiosity, how many of those have read the novel, where are you currently up to in it?

For me it's now been a little over a year since I read it, that been one of the C.H Brewitt Taylor versions which had a total of two volumes. I admittedly rushed a few sections particularly towards the latter stages of the novel which featured characters I was rather unfamiliar with, I do however intend to re-read it over the x-mas holidays though when I get some more free time, since I'll have no internet access then it will be a good time for a book. :lol:

Have you read it, which version & what is your current status with the Three Kingdoms novel?

I always reread the novel.
Currently, I'm still not a know-it-all for ROTK.
But I quite know a lot.
I read both online and book.

I've read it about 5 times from beginning to end. Boredom kicked in in my younger days.

Started it but never finished it. I think I made it to the chapter where Guan Yu joins Cao Cao's forces.

I read it online on threekingdoms.com. At some point I stopped visiting the site and eventually forgot to finish it. I may continue my reading someday, once I have more spare time.

I've read through its entirety once with the Moss Roberts 4 volume novel version. Planning for read through, part II.

My grandfather had me read it,along with other historical novels since time I could remember,so you can guess I've completed the whole book. Now whenever I drift through the pages,it fills me with nostalgia.. :mellow:

I guess I didn't technically read the whole thing. I kind of skimmed a little bit of it because some chapters were uninteresting to me. :/

I did read most of it, though.

I read the whole book. I particularly enjoyed it quite a bit.
