Reading Groups - Book Suggestions

For fiction, may I suggest "Scaramouche" by Rafael Sabatini? As a kid, I grew up with the adventure novels of Salgari and Sabatini, but I never got around to reading "Scaramouche."

. . .

Any takers on the idea? :D

I read it a long time ago, but I'd love to read it again. I've had a streak of romantic historical fiction recently including Sabatini's Captain Blood as well as Orczy's Scarlet Pimpernel, and I can always go for more. Let me know when you think you'd want to start Scaramouche (It might be a little while for me since I want to finish Economics and the Public Welfare first).

What's the status of this book group concept? I'd like to participate if it's currently going on.

I'm interested also. Were you thinking fiction or non-? I know of a terrific art criticism book, it might be an old textbook ART AND THE ART OF CRITICISM. Can't lay my hands on it right now. Very well thought-out and sounds a lot like Objectivism. It is a big read, though. I haven't found any good new fiction in a long while.

I liked the two "reading groups" that I participated in. Even though only one or two other people were involved each time, it was a way to bounce ideas off someone else, and to see their perspective when they read the same book.

Anyone interested in reviving this idea. Perhaps a short book would work better than a longer one. Personally, I would be interested in fiction or in economics/not-so-abstract philosophy/biography/history... preferably not by an Objectivist author.
