I love to read books and then discuss them. I hope to be introduced to new books, topics and subjects.
Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin (on Lincoln's cabinet), The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman (on the outbreak of the Great War), All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque (a classic novel of the Great War)
I'm a bookworm who wanted to be a teacher but who got sidetracked by life.
I'm a middle-aged bachelor bookworm living with a cat in an apartment in Denton. I have master's degrees in history and English. My favorite literary genres are history, historical fiction, biography and science fiction.
