What kinds of books do you prefer to read?

non-fiction, especially science, health, philosophy, and psychology. The Study of the brain is a special interest. I also like to read academic articles from scholarly periodicals - Nature, Scientific American, Psychiatry, Neurology Now, Smithsonian etc. Not that you can't find good writing in many places! And some of the abstracts found right on the internet are excellent.

What is your favorite book?

After all that, the first book that comes to mind is To Kill a Mockingbird!!!


Newly retired from social work and teaching college. Also recently downsized from a house to an apartment. Am designing the next chapter of my life - or is life designing me? Frustrated with all the book clubs concentrating solely on fiction.

What Barbara is saying about this Meetup Group

I would say "so far so good", and with all kinds of potential. Respectful, thoughtful members. I think we are a very stimulating and interesting group.
