“How about just coming to the threads and reading Publius’ summary of the chapter? That way you get the gist of AS, can join in the discussion, and don’t have to read it actually unless you chose to.”
I’m already up to Chapter 2 of A is A (don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for those of you who aren’t that far yet), and I use Publius’s synopsis as a review. It’s also helpful because I haven’t been very consistent in my reading habits lately. I read Ch.1 of A is A and then didn’t pick up the book again for almost two weeks.
That’s another reason Publius’ summaries should be encapsulated together!
BTW, is it just me? When trying to find old threads on AS, I don’t have much luck. What keywords work?
