Hi, I'm David. Avid reader, more escape fiction last few years (Game of Thrones, etc.) & biz books, want to get back more classical lit of youth. Ex-prof with Ph.D. (Sociology) & Cal MBA. Meeting new people also an objective.
Old favorites: The Red & The Black (Stendahl), Hemingway, Dickens, Steinbeck, Orwell (1984), All Quiet on the Western Front, Tolstoy, many others.
Not wedded to any particular title...have always wanted to read Wallace Stegner's "Angle of Repose", voted best Western Novel.
Just my first visit. Nice, smart, well read people.
