We can start to think about another group read. I believe this one was to go through 4/19, but we're done with it unless someone else is reading it that I don't know of. Anyway, we can plan to start the next group read on 4/20 or earlier if others want.

Here's the list to choose from:

Books that have not been selected for a group read. If you'd like to nominate or choose one to read, please select it from this list. Also, if I've made an error below, do let me know. I'm far from perfect.

That sounds like a good idea. I had already read it in 2015, but I could read it again. :)
