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?

That idea has been bounced around here before. The problem is that many of the slower readers (1) don't wish to be accidentally exposed to spoilers and (2) don't like joining the discussions after all the most meaningful things have already been said. It's much easier for faster readers to wait until a few days before the 20th to begin reading the selection if they want it to be fresh in their minds than it is for the slower readers to speed up so they can keep up.
