The last two weeks in Europe and Israel (The image above is from Tel Aviv) were intense so I didn't get to do much reading, hence I didn't post any reading suggestions. This weekend I pick a true back-to-basics paper to read; Dave Gifford's paper on Weighted Voted was the first to describe the "r+w" overlapping quorum approach to reason about the consistency of replicated data.

Weighted voting for replicated data, David K. Gifford, Proceedings of the 7th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles, December 10-12, 1979, Pacific Grove, CA USA
