I would define the main contingent as those who are on track not because they would be considered the majority, but because they have the time to get the reading done. Perhaps this was already discussed, but speeding up by a lot with the remainder may not be a good idea. If there are any in the group that are just able to get through at the current pace, then speeding up would exacerbate that problem.
Maybe we should at least try to figure out how behind people are? If they’re like me and only a week behind on the readings, then we can consider something different than if they are like @tessberg and report that they’re irreparably behind.
I know the next book has been already selected, but perhaps the club shouldn’t consider books at this length anymore due to how long it takes at the pace we’re going.
