This is a relatively short novella, and it is my thought that we can probably complete it in two weeks. I am proposing that the reading schedule is as follows:

Week 1--February 28th through March 6th--Introduction and Chapters I-IV

Week 2--March 7th through March 13th--Chapters V-IX and the Epilogue.

Please let me know if this schedule will work for all of you. Cheers! Chris

Adelle Schedule looks good to me...but I would be happy to read at a pace that would benefit others.

I agree, Adelle, I hope others will weigh in with their opinions too.

Everyman | 3582 comments It can certainly be read in that length of time. Can it also be adequately analyzed and discussed also, or should a third week be added for that?

I am completely open to adding a third week. More than anything I am desirous of ensuring that we mine every nugget possible during the course of our discussion. I aim to please! ;-) Cheers!
