Suggested Books for Collected Reading?

Hello folks. Carrie mentioned initially that we might do a collective reading of an important piece of 18c criticism, along the lines of the readings they do at The Valve. (Click on their link to see how they manage those readings)

Does anyone have ideas for books that they'd like to read as part of the group?

Jen has already mentioned McKeon's latest. Other suggestions? Since I'm teaching Ruth Perry's book this semester, I think it might be interesting to do hers, as well. But I'm certainly open to suggestions.

It seems to me that we could also contact the critics to see if they wished to respond. But that again is up to the group.

So any ideas?

Best wishes,
