I knew I was forgetting something!!
Tom, would you be willing to open/start the discussion threads earlier than the 20th of the month?
It would give people who read the selections at the beginning of the month a chance to voice their feelings before they start forgetting the details. It would also allow for discussion and/or questions while we're reading instead of at the end..and we would basically have the whole month, which may encourage more people to participate.
I'm thinking maybe around the 7th or the 10th?
