If you are looking for ideas for things to read, you should check out what other Machine Learning Reading Groups are reading. I compiled the following list by searching google/asking people.

This list is not very up to date. This is a permalink so feel free to link to it. Please let me know through email, or comment section about other up-to-date MLRGs you know (site must list papers)
