[books] World's Worst Read English Major Book Club.

So, bouncingleaf and I were talking a while ago, and we came ot the conclusion that we were the worst-read english majors on the planet, and joked around about starting a book club.

I'm liking this idea, and thought I'd, oh, actually do something with it, so I made a list. Step 1: See if anyone else is interested.

I shall now work on Step 1. Anyone interested? I'm thinking a book a month, weekly discussion of chapters here in LJ. I'll start a community or something. Books would be picked by me, your benevolent dictator. I will, of course, take recommendations. They will likely be things you were supposed to have read in high school or college, particularly if you were an english / lit major.

Speak, bookworms!

ohhh yes
I have been thinking about this more lately
uh maybe I'll say more when it isn't quarter of three-hours-past-leaf-bedtime
Not a english/lit major but since I do enjoy reading (including classics), I'd be intrested. :)
Sign me up. I think I'm somewhat decently read, but any excuse to keep that up is a good one. :)
Add me as a "sometimes". :-) I can't force myself to read books that I find unappealing. That's not to say that I think you'd pick something unappealing to me, but I'm on a book-a-month mailing list and I've had to bow out of a few discussions because the selections were so unappealing that I couldn't bring myself to read more than the first 100 pages of the book.
Speak, bookworms!

T'was brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimbol in the wabe
All mimsy were the borogroves
And the mome-raths outgrabe.

I am only an english minor, can I play too? :) However, I reserve the right to not read it if I don't have time.
Es brillig war. Die schlichte Toven
Wirrten und wimmelten im Waben.
Und aller-muemsige Burggoven
Der mohmen Raeth ausgraben.

I'm a computer geek. I sorta concentrated in poetry, but not to the point of a minor. Sign me up -- it'll give me something other than law books to read.
You too?
Huh. I thought I was the only "worst read English major" around. (Mostly 'cause I didn't bother reading the assignments. Please don't ask how I escaped college with a degree in hand. I don't know.)
Books
I love books, but like you all have not had the time to read as much as I want.

And as a Shakespeare buff, I can definitely say that reading is more fun when you have someone to talk to about it.
