What are Wikiversity Reading Groups?
Wikiversity Reading Groups are learning projects oriented around generating discussion and notes around specific books, texts, videos, or entire oeuvres that users find of interest.
Starting a Reading Group
Please add [[Category:Reading groups]] to any newly created Reading Group. If the book or text has a page on Wikipedia please consider adding the Wikiversity Template to the appropriate Wikipedia page.
