Old Books, New Readers

This is a group for people who want to read old books and classics and then discuss them as a group.

The mods choose themes each voting period (usually 4-8 weeks depending on the length of the current group selection) and the group will choose a book to read that fits the theme.

Everyone is welcome who loves to read and talk about what they have read and take and give some tips for getting through those old classics sitting on your book shelf.
