Intended for those who have always wanted to read that one classic novel of gargantuan proportions but never did (or didn't finish). This group will read a notoriously lengthy book widely considered a classic, section by section, and meet monthly for a one hour discussion.

Together, we'll get to the finish line. One word at a time.
