Parasha: meta + poll

First things first, Thanks everyone for participating so far, and I'm hoping to keep this going in future months, because dude, fun! So I'm looking for suggestions for future months, and would like to especially get next month's book squared away, but then start on future months as well (since basically books have to be decided on, people have to have a chance to pick them up if needed/desired, sections per day/period of time need to be figured out before starting, etc.

I'm also hoping to take a day or two at the end of each book to discuss them as a whole, once everyone's come to the end (and no longer has to worry about spoilage), to see if there's anything dangling that didn't get resolved, just discuss various stuff. And things. But then, that can also overlap with the next book.

Anyhow, if anyone has any comments on the format so far, requests, whatever, please speak up!

And now for the poll part. Because everyone loves a poll, right? Right?

I, um, may or may not have gotten slightly carried away here.

Yeah, I didn't think about the length of CoMC. Hrm. Still though, over the course of a month that's not too bad! (Although yeah, reading other things too, I know I know)

Oh, how about The Phoenix Guards instead? I'd love an excuse to reread that one.

Also, my vote for December is "anything but a Christmas Carol". If there's one story that I am absolutely sick to death of, it's that one.

Ooh. Or actual Dumas--though that would probably require the same more time as Monte Cristo.

Yeah, I knew that but wasn't thinking. I meant The Three Musketeers itself.

Hrm, I'm like one of the few people I think that didn't "click" with The Phoenix Guards all that well. Although I didn't, like, loathe it to the point where I'd refuse to re-read it or anything, so it's a possibility.
