Phrodrick That's OK. you kids go ahead, (Half Hidden sigh) Don't worry about this old man. We old folks get used to being left behind. Do't worry. I have managed alone before. One more time won't kill me.
If my heart just gives out I wont be because of you. Besides I would rather watch you young'uns have your fun....without me (sneaking side glances)

Candace (cprimackqcom) | 138 comments I have my copy and I’m excited to read this. I’ve read many good things about this book over the years and have seen it on many “must read” lists.

I have the Penguin Classics Edition. Is there a favorite edition most participants in this group use? Just asking even though I know the editions vary widely depending on each book.

I am glad you will be joining the discussion, whenever that will be.
I hope you are enjoying Voltaire's letters.

Phrodrick Looks like I will join, tho likely chapters behind.
Likely I will be behind the others, we will have to see how the weeks proceeds from here.

Finished Voltaire today, but am only page 2 of The Female Quixote.
