Founded in late 2009 by Johnny the Nomad, we've been meeting ever since to discuss books, with more than forty under our belt at the beginning of 2014. We take an informal format, try to be more welcoming and inclusive to newcomers than many private book clubs, and make sure we occasionally talk about the book in between having fun. We typically meet twice per book, once on the weekend and once on a weeknight. We try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction. We pick books by consensus, and any member is eligible to recommend the next book, if they will commit to attending the two meetings for it and actively participate (however, I do personally discourage people from joining the group purely because of a specific book or topic of interest, because we prefer to have long-term members rather than driveby critiquing!). Come join us!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
