Originally we read mainly 18th, 19th and early 20th century books (nothing newer than 1950-ish) but we moved the focus a little and included books from 20th Century that we believe will become classics.

We are looking ahead and still planning to read humorous books. Suggestions have been made — the latest two are Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford and Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh. More suggestions are very welcome.

We always have had some really interesting discussions about books we have chosen.
