If asked what is your favorite thing to do---would reading a book be your answer?  

 
Do you love to go to the library? Get stuck by the books at the grocery store ---(nope, not going to give in and buy one since you have a stack at home you still need to read?) Ever read a book twice and hey, liked it the second time too? When you read does it bug you to read trilogies or series out of order? Do you listen to books on tape because reading in the car would be too dangerous? Ever miss an exit/turn because you were so engrossed in the book playing? Hate abridged books… (why on Earth would you not read or listen to the whole thing?) Will you read just about anything, any genre as long as it’s fiction?

Well you’re at the right place.

 

If I have enough interest I’d like to start a book club in the Mobile area. We will read any genre. Which could include Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Short Fiction, Westerns, Historical Fiction, Thriller/Suspense and all the sub-genres in each. How fast we read will depend on the group…if I didn’t have to work I could read a book a day…but since I’m not independently wealthy that’s not going to happen anytime soon. So we will pace the reading and meetings for the group on a consensus.
Hopefully I’ll hear from some other avid readers in the area…. And we can determine a day and time for our first meeting.
As an aside, I’d like to see this develop into a serious group… for instance if we were to read mysteries, maybe we could delve into the differences between each style. Just a thought…..

 

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
