We want people to read for the fun of it and not worry about feeling they need to be "smart."
We will be reading both traditional, and more modern classic novels. Please feel free to openly discuss any aspects of the books that we read in the forums, and remember that we're reading these books for FUN! So pour yourself a yummy beverage and let's discuss these books like we're sitting with a bunch of friends!
We all vote on what book to read next and we read in a three month rotation (Pre-1910, 1910-1959, 1960-2004), so please visit our polls to help us select our next book https://www.goodreads.com/poll/list/78394-classics-without-all-the-class?type=group
