Oh, hell yes. I had a hard time choosing between chapters 5 and 6, but I've settled on 5 so I can do "Father William."

I love this forum. Where else do people say "Hell, yes" about reading a chapter of Alice?

I was tempted by Father William, too...but the Hatter and the Hare and the Dormouse won out.

OK, I'll take chapter 2. I am having a hard time finishing my Frost poetry for some reason.

Kristen, I just sent you chapter 2 via yousendit. Was a ton of fun - talking mice, a river of tears, etc.

You are speedy, Brad. Thank you. It sounds great.

Raza, Pig and Pepper is yours.

The desired completion date for all the readings is January 15th, 2006. Of course, sooner is always better, since it means we can read even more books :-)

best repository of pd books is: www.gutenberg.org ... they do extensive legal checking, and have a huge catalog of pd books available in electronic format.

Hiya-- is chapter four still available, and if so, what do I have to do to make it mine?
