No on the Group Reads Literature thread. About the only thread I have time to really follow is the 75 book challenge group. It's my second year with that group and it's very lively in the discussions and the diversity of reading is a treat.
Thanks for picking mylibrary as an interesting one. How did you run across it? Looks like we share mostly classics; I'll have to look through your catalog also. Happy Independence Day.
I'd be interested in your review of Native Son and, of course, Pale Fire...

Pickwick seems like a good way to start the new year! I read Shandy only recently and really liked it.
Do you have a second catalog with all your books? What are you going to do in 2008? Stupid question.
Erich,
Never Let Me Go ultimately frustrated me in its restraint. There were many interactions that could have taken place between the clones themselves and between clones and non-clones. I was reminded of many beloved sci-fi books with great premises and limited, linear development, making them essentially elongated short stories. Although Ishiguro grew up in England, he uses stiff dialogue that struck me as "Asian" at various times ex. "It's sure" recurs often in the book and in Asian movies, but do British or Americans talk like that? Anyway, I did enjoy the novel and felt there were many missed opportunities.
