Why our group? What do you hope to contribute as a member of our group? PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST FILL OUT ALL QUESTIONS TO BE CONSIDERED..

Well the reasons are rather simple. (1) you're organized; (2) you have a history of meeting with good attendance; and (3) I was drawn to you by the eclectic collection of titles that you have read and will be reading.

Favorite Authors??

For fiction . . . Arthur Conan Doyle, John Le Carre, and Frederick Forsythe. For literature. . . Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad, and Siri Hustvedt

Beloved Books??

The two old friends I go regularly are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig ( I know it's not really ficition or literature but it has a grip on me). The Complete Sherlock Holmes (short stories and novels).

Tell us a little more about who you are, where you come from...

I live in Manhattan, Inwood, with my dog, Panya and work in financial services, anti-money laudering compliance. Originally from Long Island (went to Stony Brook, BA in political science), spent five years in Florida before coming back.

Introduction

Hi. I'm Jim and I am a reader. I am in the process of rediscovering fiction and literature and felt that a book club would be a helpful way to do that. My previous tastes were for history and biography.

What Jim is saying about this Meetup Group

Others should join for the following reasons. 1. This is a well organized group with a history of meeting and a group of long standing members 2. The book list is eclectic and if someone wants to read something different and needs help finding a title and someone to talk about it with this is the group. 3. The fact that there is a meal involved, seems to me, to make the readers more committed to the book and the group.
