March's book is Wool by Hugh Howey. From Amazon:
"This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did. This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside."
PLEASE NOTE - it looks like this book is out of print, so only used copies are around (or on the Kindle) and eBay wants ridiculous prices for them. Amazon sells them used for ~$17 with shipping. Either way, let me know if it becomes too much of a problem to get copies and we'll see what we can do.
As for The Stand, I'm about half way through. So roughly 600 - 700 pages in.
See you there!
