Our next read on January 4 & 18, and February 1 is
Caesar: A Novel by Colleen McCullough.
I've been trying to make a fairly even split:
January 4: through Page 206
January 18: through Page 420
February 1: through the end
I suspect that some of the participants may not be too interested in the battle scenes, so we will play it by ear. However, it was suggested to read De Bello Gallico as background, and here is an eText link: Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic and Civil Wars.
See you all on the 4th!
