who's up for a read-along?

If you are, tell me which book you'd like most for the read-along. I guess you should also mention if there's one of these that you just would not do.

L. M. Montgomery's Rilla of Ingleside

St. Augustine's Confessions

Douglas Coupland's All Families Are Psychotic

Wendell Berry's Life Is A Miracle

Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility

Whichever one we do, it'll probably go pretty slowly-- one post/discussion per week, perhaps.

Let me know what you think.

I would be most interested in Life is a Miracle. Of course, I should have my head examined because I am already in two book clubs and my eXtreme semester starts tomorrow. However... I'd love to lurk about even if I can't get the reading done.

I've already read Rilla of Ingleside and Sense and Sensibility, although my brain would probably be fuzzy on the details. All Families are Pscyhotic is one of my faves and I reread it a few months ago. It would still be fresh in my mind.

Somehow I think it would have to be the psychotic one, or LM Montgomery. B/C as much as I like Augustine, the Confessions is just too much for me right now. Or anything that is much heavier than Patricia Cornwell.

Rilla please!

I would be interested in any of them. I've never read the Coupland or the Berry books, and only made a dent in the Confessions (and it's on my mental to-read list).It's been a long time since I've read Rilla, and even though I've lost count of how many times I've read S&S, I'm thinking there'd be some new insights.

So...that was a long explanation to say "any of them." Please let us know as soon as you decide so I can put a library request in.

Not a big fan of Augustine's Confessions, but will read it if you pick it.

My vote goes to Sense and Sensibility.

I'd do Rilla in a heart-beat, but I'm game for anything but Austen.
Mind you, if there was peer motivation I might actually make it through an Austen without throwing myself out a window.
