I have made the decision to close the Arete Classical Study reading group due to my inability to continue coordinating the readings. There is another classical reading group for home school mom's here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheClassicalReview/
This group has over 360 members and is currently reading Charlotte Bronte's Wuthering Heights. The format is more conversational and the reading is selected for enjoyment moreso than by chronological order.
Wishing you all happy reading,
List Moderator for Arete Classical Studies
