I'll be bringing the novels with me, and I've already reached chapter 8 in both books. What if we aim for chapter 12 in both of them? And what if you use this post as your discussion base for the week's reading? To propel your comments, my only leading question is this: what is making you most uneasy?
I'm beginning to compile a list of the other books I'll be packing. So far I've got The Collected Shorter Poems of Hayden Carruth and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night. I'm also considering King Lear and possibly Dorothy Sayers's Busman's Honeymoon. Wordsworth's Prelude ought to come along, and possibly George Herbert's poems as well. . . .
I know this is beginning to sound ridiculous. Book separation anxiety is why I never go to writers' retreats.
