I think I got this poll plugin thingie to work right, such that you can vote anonymously, don’t have to register to comment, etc. Let’s see.
We could use Bloom’s list of the “Western Canon,” this list of the 100 most influential, or whatever. I’m not picky; I just don’t want to spend any money on this, and actually have a chance to read and comment on the thing.
So I’m thinking something like: Vote on the book the 1st Friday of the month, post initial thoughts the 3rd Friday, open the floor up the 4th Friday.
Also, since we’re not pretentious here, I don’t mean we all have to read every word of Das Kapital or whatever. Summaries are fine, so long as they’re sourced — the idea is to discuss stuff, not get bogged down in Chapter XLVIII: On the Proper Technique of Grasping Knitting Needles or whatever.
Heck, if we do Cliff’s Notes we could do it every Friday. Either way. So I’m asking two things here:
- comment on preferred options.
Gracias. Let’s see how this goes!
