YIMC Book Club — What’s Next?

We have two chapters left in Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton, and Webster will post on these each of the next two Thursday evenings. Which means that by Thursday, January 14, we should know what book we’re reading next!

We’d like your suggestions. What would you like to read and discuss together? There are a few considerations:
  1. The book should be relatively short, like Orthodoxy, so that it doesn’t take forever to read.
  2. It should be something that can be read in bite-size installments, say, 15-20 pages at a time. I know some are voracious readers and could do a book a week, but we want to encourage participation.
  3. It should be something that is not hard to get, either on line or in cheap paperback. (AbeBooks and other used-book sites are great sources for paperbacks, even hardcovers, under $5.)
  4. If the book was written in a foreign language, the suggestion should include the name of the English translator.
Can’t think of any other issues right now . . . What do you think we should read together?
