Yes- posted

Please tell us your favorite genre, author, beverage or tell us all three.

I tend to read a lot of science fiction and fantasy novels (I also write SF short stories), but I've also been getting into cultural/historical novels lately, especially novels about Asia and the Middle East and I will read just about anything if it catches my fancy. My favorite SF/F authors include Peter Hamilton, Ursula K LeGuin, CS Friedman, and many others.

In your opinion, what does a book group discussion add to your enjoyment of the reading experience?

A book discussion group provides insights into a story that I might not have gotten otherwise- the varied perspectives of group members lets different people notice different things about the story and adds a lot of depth. It also helps turn an essentially solitary experience (reading a book) into a more social one (sharing your impressions with others), which is fun in and of itself.

If your Meetup "location" is NOT in the New Orleans area, please explain why you want to join our group. Thanks.

Introduction

I just moved back to New Orleans after living in Beijing, China for 4 years. I love reading and discussing interesting books as well as engaging in interesting, intelligent conversation in general.

great group- wonderful intelligent people who give great insights about the books we read
