RE: [classics-68] Selecting Next Year's Reading List

I'm not sure if you meant we want shorter or longer length books, so here are my suggestions for both:


longer: Moby Dick, The Brothers Karamazov, Robinson Crusoe


shorter: Heart of Darkness, Ethan Frome, any play by Henrik Ibsen

Subject: [classics-68] Selecting Next Year's Reading List


Hi folks,

Starting July 15 and ending August 15, I will be accepting suggestions for next year's reading list.  I hope to announce next year's reading list by August 30th.

For your suggestions, please consider the following:

1.  Is it available at the library?

2.  Are there multiple translations or versions that could create confusion?

3.  Length/number of pages.

4.  Has it been read recently?  Check the 'past meetups' page for previous reads.


I am particularly interested in books that fall into one of the following categories:

1.  Shakespeare play.

2.  Greek or Roman.

3.  Indian subcontinent.

4.  Spanish/latin american.

5.  Russian.

6.  Early British, modern British.

7.  Early American, modern american.

8.  French.

9.  Scandinavian or German.

10.   Science fiction.

11.  Nature & ecology.

12.  History.

13.  Politics, philosophy or economics.

14.  Mystery/thriller/horror.


Thank you for your input.


Brian Carpenter
