Reader/Critique group formed -- thanks all!
I've selected the group. If you volunteered and weren't invited yet, please don't take that as an insult. I'm trying to select a relatively small and diverse group -- from at least three online communities -- and so I've had to choose only some of the volunteers. If things seem to be going smoothly, I may bring more in. I've already gone over my original number estimate, as I'm bringing in people from the Bar and from Usenet as well.
