I'm looking to start a solid & committed small to mid-sized group interested in all things books. I'm not Oprah...If I want "fluff" I'll grab a book from a girlfriend. What I want is to read and discuss silly books, smart books, graphic novels, classics, books made into movies, movies made into books, books about movie stars and books about rock idols. Comedy, Finance, Home-Improvement, Kid-Lit, Satire, Psychology, Mystery & Suspense...show me the Ridiculous & the Serious....I WANT IT ALL. The only thing I don't want is the stagnant same old "I feel like I have to finish this 'make me want to puke' book" book club. I'd like to do this with a group of similar minded people who crave diversity, wit & who expect the unexpected.
If you join, be willing to commit to one book a month & be open to hosting in rotation...I'm thinking low key restaurants/bars at first for some drinking & food then possibly moving it to members homes sometimes if we ever feel that comfortable...WHICH I HOPE WE WILL! So if you're open to the possibility of learning & at least thinking, come with me and definitively shout to the masses:
BURN IT OR BUY IT!
To learn to read is to light a fire...
