I'm thinking of reading part of Tennyson's book Maud and other Poems (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/56913), specifically the main long poem, Maud, along with several of the others. But there are a few in there that I'd really prefer to skip as they are longish and pretty boring. My question is - is it OK to do a solo of part of a book? If so, what title should I use? Would Maud and other Poems (selections) work?

I know it's been done once before as a collaborative reading. Thanks for the help.
