Trump Speech/Music Thread/Book Club Thread

So people were having fun talking about music in an unrelated threat earlier. You can use this one to start that up again if you like. The topic we were on were Worst/Most Overrated Bands of the 80s, but obviously you can talk about whatever you want.

I read Jazz Shaw's post today about teenagers no longer reading, and the idea (which I can attest to personally) that when you stop reading, your skill at it diminishes. (As do all skills.)

I should say that while I crapped out on Hound of the Baskervilles last time, I just went through it in a couple or three nights. So... I guess by reading I've refurbished my diminished skill in reading a bit?

With that in mind, any idea for a Book Club read? Here's my thought: I'd like to pick a short book, because, well, we all know, I have been pretty unreliable on this score.

I don't want to do a Bart Simpson Book Report on a book I didn't actually finish.

I had a couple of ideas, Treasure Island or Jekyll and Hyde, but I don't know if Treasure Island would hold up, and I've tried to get through Jekyll before and found it pretty lame.

Any other ideas? Short, maybe nostalgic, maybe classic, maybe kind of fun?
