    Azaril,

    Then maybe you can skip the Marquez month and join us for the other reads. Welcome to the Forum!

    Gasp! That is one of my favorite books ever! Sorry to hear you did not enjoy it.

    Aha Scherehezade yes, I'll do my best if I have the time.

    Genoveva, perhaps the english version is better (you are American, right?), but the spanish one pffffff I didn't find anything interesting in that book, I have read also "Relato de un náufrago" and "El amor en los tiempos del cólera", didn't like any of them.

    I guess we are very different so it will never work between us darling

    Some time this year... Yep, definitely before the end of 2006!

    (Probably in autumn.)

    Yuppers, Reading Bronte's is a good idea!

    Any chance we'll be reading October Sky, Night, The Odyssey, Of Mice and Men, Great Expectations, and Romeo and Juliet in that order during... I dunno... the 2006-2007 school year time-frame

    You can't blame a girl for trying

    Is the order we will being reading the authors already predetermined? If so, do you know who we will be reading in June? Also, when will the next holiday-themed read be? Thank you bunches

    There is no order really; I am just tyring to choose so that we read different styles and periods each month.

    I think we will have the summer read in mid June or so but meanwhile we will be reading books by other others as well to celebrate various things.

    I am not sure what we will be reading in June yet! Will have to wait and see!

    Ooooh, I've only just noticed this, it sounds really interesting. I think I might skip out on the Terry Pratchett though (is it really, really that worth it?) and join in July. Would love to have gone over Portrait of the Artist as I've yet to read any Joyce (but Dubliners should arrive in the mail tomorrow), but I suppose I'll have to catch up on my own.

    At last!

    Just found this forum - at last, a reading group whose titles are interesting, challenging, broad and my sort of literature! Looking forward to joining you for the Dickens read in October!

    Of the whole list I've only read Rebecca, 1984, and A Christmas Carol. I really need to get to the library!
