What is your favorite literary book / author / period? Feel free to list more than one favorite, especially your all-time favorite.

Edith Wharton, "The Age of Innocence"; Louise Erdrich, "Tracks"; N. Scott Momaday, "The Names"; Nella Larsen, "Passing"; Jean Toomer, "Cane"; Wilkie Collins, "The Woman in White"; Jane Austen, "Pride and Prejudice", Francoise Sagan, "Bonjour Tristesse", ... Oops. More than three!

Which books have you started and never finished because they were just too dense or confusing or boring, and there was no deadline (or something similar) looming?

Nothing too specific - but broadly, the 19th and early 20th century.

Which literary books have you read and then felt frustrated because there was no one to discuss them with? Would you like to have the group read and discuss them?

No answer yet

Would you be open to reading and discussing non-fiction books? Something like David McCullough's biographies, books on historical events, essays, poetry, etc.? If so, what are your suggestions?

Besides those listed under "favorite books": Astrid Lindgren, Erich Kästner, Edgar Allan Poe, Benoite Groult, Edward Abbey, Arthur Conan Doyle, J. K. Rowling.

What books are on your "I-really-should-read-this...someday" list?

Introduction

I read a lot of literature as part of my English degree in Germany, and I miss it!
