Fall 2016 Lineup

The votes are in. Here's what we'll be reading for the next few months:

September (Steve): Basin and Range, John McPhee
October (Jordan): Notes from the Underground by Dostoyevky
November (Emron): Nazi Literature in the Americas or Borges and the Eternal Orangutans (tied)
December (Brandon): Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes
January (Adam): Barbarian Days, William Finnegan

Steve told me he was okay with hosting in September. The rest of you let me know if this works. We'll plan tentatively on the 2nd Thursday of each month.

I kept it in somewhat the same order as last time, but put mine later to give more time for that long book. Or if December is busy for everyone, we could push it back to January, maybe just do a movie night in December or something.

If anyone has input on good translations for Underground and Quixote, let us know.

Alright, I'm excited to dive into these, they all sound realy cool.

  1. I think a lot of snobby, bookish people might argue about which super dusty translation of Quixote is the best. For my money, the fairly new Edith Grossman translation will serve very well.

    Also, as with the Bible, I tend to believe one does not read Don Quixote so much as one reads from Don Quixote.

    Looking forward to some geology talk next month.
