I've already read The Scarlet Letter, Heart of Darkness and Catch-22, so I'm glad none of those won. They are all good books but I'd rather read a new book.

But out of the other seven, I echo Tom's sentiments a bit; A Christmas Carol would have been bottom of my list. Only because I've seen the production countless times and am not sure how much more I will get out of reading it, and because I'm reading another Dickens book too. However, I will be happy to read it; it is a classic and I'll be able to cross it off my list, and it's short. I don't know how much interesting discussion will come of it though.

I like the suggestion of a separate Iliad discussion (it would've been my second choice this month after To The Lighthouse).
