    One note about parking, there is no street parking on Village Crest. There is room for 2 cars in my driveway (if you park towards the sides), and street parking on Kottke. There may also be some parking spots at the top of the horseshoe of Village Crest, near the mail boxes.

    I came across this link, from the BBC, of what they consider to be the 100 classics to read. They find that most people have read just 6. I've read 22, which I think is just okay. Our last book, The Lord of the Flies, is on it. I have enjoyed every book I've read from this list. http://www.listchallenges.com/kaunismina-bbc-6-books-challenge?ref=share

    I would vote for another date if that works for others.

      I can't meet the following Monday.

      March 8, 2014

    • Mark K

      I can make either Monday. However, my preference is to keep the meeting on the 17th to accomodate those who are unavailable on the 24th and because the April book is long and we will probably need a full month to complete it.

    It will be at my house. Getting the book does not seem to be a problem, but if people want a extra week to read it, I would have no problems hosting it on the 24th instead.

    Are we going to meet at Rick's as we discussed? Have people been able to get the book? We are meeting in only 2 weeks, is that enough time or do people want to move it up? What are your thoughts?

    March 3, 2014

    • Jessica

      I was able to get the book in less than 24 hours.

    We changed the book from the originally scheduled one. It is now An Object of Beauty. It was Formerly the Oct choice.
