I've started re-reading Thornton Wilder's The Ides of March, our upcoming chat subject (March 26). It's not the easiest novel to read, not because of the letter format, but of the quite dense content. This is not a book one can speed-read: a sentence missed, and one can easily be lost.
So for the members of our group I suggest to start as early as possible.

On another note: I wish our newscasters and their writers would be more educated. On Sunday, a newscaster on one of the cable networks announced – in more or less these words – "Today are the Ides of March, when the Roman emperor Julius Caesar was assassinated by a group of nobles."
