Leila at bookshelves of doom is running an I, Claudius Big Read. Of the books she was considering, that was the one that interested me the most. However, we're doing The Maltese Falcon as a Big Read in my area of the state next month, too. I think I've already read it, but I've always been interested in Hammett (He was a Pinkerton detective!), and there's going to be a real-world book discussion one evening. (A game of Clue, too, which I could do without.) Plus, I've been thinking of trying to write some kiddie-noir for years. But...there's no speaker. I do like speakers if I'm doing a Big Read in the carbon-based world.
So I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe I should just read one of the dozens of other books that are lying around my house. That's a third possibility, I suppose.
