August is for vacations and adventures. Let's follow Phileas Fogg and his French valet Passepartout circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager set by his friends at the Reform Club. Available in Kindle for free.
The Ann Arbor Classics Book Group meets monthly on Sundays at 3pm on the ground floor of the UofM Michigan Union to discuss selections from Boxall's "1001 books you must read before you die."
Group members vote online for monthly selections. There are dues of $1.00 for each meetup attended (to help cover the monthly meetup.com fee).
Occasionally, we will have a special event such as a film viewing, coffee meet and greet, scrabble get-together or a book swap.
This group is largely driven by its members, so make sure to voice your opinions on the group message board. Don't forget, the full list of 1001 books can be found under our group files in excel format. Download it and see how many you have read! A list of past selections and a guide to which books are available in audio-format and how to obtain them can also be found under group files.
