Vote! Vote! Vote! for Major Barbara :D

I have no idea what or who Major Barbara is, I'm afraid ( ), but if that's what people fancy...

Well alright! I'm psyched on it. Col seems to be too. Wavid seems game. Is anyone else in for Major Barbara?

P.S. Yes Wavid, I'm done with ASHoNE. There's not much to add to my previous comments. Let me just say again that I enjoyed it very much.

Right...are we reading Major Barbara for discussion beginning Feb. 1, then?

Also, have we made a decision on the Big Book for Mar. 1 discussion? There seems to be a clear leader in the polls.

I'm confused. I thought we'd do Holmes in February and, if it came together, Barbara in January. Or is that all wrong?

So I think it's a sort of hors d'oeuvre, if you will.

So, the book chosen in the poll we start reading in Feb and discuss march 1.

The play, if that's what we are doing, we discuss from Feb 1.

I presumed we were reading (very likely) Sherlock Holmes for discussion to start March 1st; and Major Barbara to start Feb 1st.

Right. I'll get out of the fast lane then. I really don't have time to read anything in January anyway.
