Who are you and what do you want?

I am a man who wants to read good books and who wants to talk about those books with people who are smarter than I (or at least have an intelligent/different perspective than I).

Favorite Book?

If I tried to rule out every possible contender, I'd never answer. So, Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. The poetry, the symbolism, the social commentary in this novel thrills me every time.

Introduction

I am a 41 year old reader/skateboarder (The two great loves of my life). I taught English for ten years. When the uncomprehending face suddenly lights up with understanding or when a non-reader finishes her first book ever and asks for another, wow.
