Hello, fellow warriors,

Maybe it's been done in the past, but I find it a nice idea: can we try to have a group reading in here? I'm perfectly aware that we all do lots of reading here with all the research for information about this experience we face. But just delving into the worlds created or recreated by the imagination or thorough research of a writer can be way to find peace and exercise brain...

So, should you be interested in having this group reading, let's see how we organize it. First let's make suggestions of book titles and then have a vote to see which book will be picked. If more books get many votes, we can read them one after the other.

Then set the dates for reading the book per chapters or parts. But if there are more practical ways to organize ourselves, please share.

For book titles, my suggestions would be:

Sei Shonagon's "Pillow book"

Marguerite Yourcenar's "Memoirs of Hadrian"

Yasunari Kawabata's "The Master of Go"

Thank you and I'm looking forward to see your suggestions. :)
