] I would like to make a plea to the powers that be; that we read, "A Christmas Carol", for the upcoming holiday season.
] This has always been my favorite Dicken's work. It has excellent prose. And it is short enough to read in just one long sitting.

Sounds great - but I won't be here to discuss it, I have to go home (my parents like to see me sometimes). However, I shall read it and think of you all...
PS. please, please, pretty please, can we read Mapp and Lucia by E.F. Benson at some stage? It's a nice little 1920's social comedy, and has fans amongst us...
