    The Marble Faun by Nathanial Hawthorne

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    This is going to be tough so far. I want to read all those books.

    I was tempted to nominate that one myself, but length is a factor.

    Otranto looks good, but if 700 pages are too much for Feb, why not bend the rules and start reading it for April?

    Hi, Sandy.

    I am afraid we cannot change the reading schedule now as it would cause a lot of confusion. Maybe next year we can pick 12 books to pick at the start of the year and go along with that.

    Hope you can join us in February
