Life in the city is pretty great, but not having a book club is a drag. I'm looking to start a small book club for women in their 20s and 30s who spend too much on books, want to have an excuse to read more often, and want to meet new friends (who knew that was hard to do in a new city in your mid-20s?) possibly (probably) over wine/beer. I'm looking to limit it to around 10 quirky, literate, funny ladies to start to keep our meeting locations flexible and give everyone a chance to talk. Open to any genre - we'll pick out our first few books prior to the first meetup. Read on!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
