[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!

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.
