What I've noticed when list readings begin is that there is great
enthusiasm by many participants at first. Then after a few pages a
particular topic becomes dominant for a few participants, and then becomes
too in depth for most to follow, or many lose interest. A reading should
have a schedule and a moderator, because there is so much that could spark
discussion that we would never get past the initial pages of the text.
