What is your favorite genre (it better be fantasy!)?

Whatever mashup can contain Tolkien, Aeschylus, Blake, Doug Adams, the "Dexter" series, the Bronte sisters, and Jane Austen.

What are your favorite places to read?

Train, bus, WC, bed, kitchen, beach, park, funerals, walking down the street, driving, ... Probably shorter to list places where I don't like reading: the Pirate Ship and Water Log rides at amusement parks, happy-ending massage parlors, Metallica concerts.

What do you drink while you read?

Blood of virgins harvested at the new moon (excellent for the stamina needed to trudge through Joyce)

How often do you read? (i.e. hours a day, or a few hours a week)?

Hours a day? Days an hour -- relativity and all.

Top 3 favorite books/series (don't fret over the order).

---- Favorite Books: The Count of Monte Cristo, All Quiet on The Western Front, The General of the Dead Army ---- Favorite Series: Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter, Encyclopaedia Britannica (V is an especially fascinating read)

Introduction

Hi, I'm Arcanian. Moved to Philly area recently and Beer and Books (both preferably dark) sound like a great way to head into autumn and winter.

What Arcanian is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesomest book club that ever clubbed books; that's antimetabole (I think)
