Well, I havn't really contributed anything sinch joining the book group - I really should add my thoughts on CTBC.

Anyway, Steinbeck is always good, another shortish one which I love and would happily read again would be Cannery Row.

Or how about some Peter Hoeg, there was some interest expressed on another thread, The History of Danish Dreams, or Tales of the Night would be my recommendations.

Digger, to achieve italics the closing set of square brackets around the word needs to have a / in it, thus: [/i]

Or you can just hi-light and press the italics button.

Thanks Notty, and JS, I usually highlight and click. And I have no idea why they didn't come out in italic, see I can do it fine now! I merrily highlighted and clicked but it just didn't happen for me, sigh. I blame using a different computer!

Is there an imminent poll for the book choice coming up? :D I'm a little lost as to when we'd be reading it for.

You're right Col. Give me 5 minutes and I'll sort it out. Shall we move to Feb 1st for a starting point?

Poll up and running. There might be too many choices for a decent consensus to emerge, we'll see.

The poll runs for 20 days, that then gives a week or so before the February kick off, then discuss in March - this seems rather a long way away?

Anybody fancy doing a short piece as suggested by Rick for discussion in February? Something we can download for no cost and get read in a day or two.

Maybe we could read a play? Bernard Shaw perhaps? Major BArbara perhaps? Just a thought. Or maybe Chekov? Or Ibsen? All of whom have works available at Project Gutenberg.
