The issue that I have with this proposal is that the second excerpt will always be read in comparison to what we thought of the first and we will never be able to see it as its own entity. I also feel that by using so many texts and excerpts there will be a great  amount of time that goes into selecting the excerpts, and possibly debate about which ideas were expressed in the excerpt but may not be an accurate depiction of the book as a whole. I like the texts selected but the actual outline itself overwhelms me.  Maybe I am thinking with a narrow minded mentality but this much work should go into reading and discussing the book, not choosing which areas to discuss.
