: All right, Joffre. Yes, you're probably right. Things
: fell apart before because we planned to read too much.
: As I recall, we went from one a month (which was
: quite a lot for my limited reading time) to an
: "optional" two per month, and I, at least,
: got overwhelmed and sort of pulled away. It seemed
: like the whole club fell down then. That may not be
: exactly right, but I do think we should avoid
: over-planning. So, how about this?
: September: Mr. Palomar (it's short)
: October: Guillermo and I read The Warden and
: Barchester Towers
: November/December: The Three Musketeers
: If you wish to propose an additional book that you
: want to read with us, Joffre, I will be more than
: willing to read it with you. Then toward the end of
: the year we can propose three more, one each, to be
: read during the first six months of 2017.
: --Previous Message--
: I thought we were reading one every two months, six
: for the year. I seem to have been mistaken from the
: beginning as we only chose five, but why don't we go
: with that? You two can, of course, go on with the two
: Trollope novels whenever you like. We can read Palomar
: now and something for November/December. Then we can
: each choose two for next year. Maybe we can each
: choose one and then when we come to the last of those,
: each choose another.
: I suppose I can read The Three Musketeers. Please tell
: me it's better than The Man in the Iron Mask; I
: thought that was a dreadful bore. On the other hand, I
: quite enjoyed The Count of Monte Cristo and The Black
: Tulip which we read here.
