The participation in the ongoing online reading group has not been quite what I had hoped for, but the quality of the comments have been good. Rarebit Fiend has a great catch in last week's entry, where he gives the origin of the character Hans Zoesser. Oz Fritz is consistently interesting, and his discussion of Platonism in this week's comments, obviously just getting started, is quite good. And we welcome back Eric Wagner, who has given a barrage of comments. My thanks to everyone who has weighed in since the reading group began.
