What do you hope to get out of this Meetup?

Leads on good books. Insight from discussions with other readers.

What are your three favorite books?

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, Roma by Steven Saylor, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams are just three off the top of my head. I love so many of them.

If you could have dinner with any author (living or dead), who would it be and why?

Julia Child. Because the food would be excellent and I expect she would be fun to be with.

Are there any books you're too embarrassed to admit you read?

Maybe... depends on who I'm talking to.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have one book, what would it be?

I suppose a powered-up Kindle isn't likely to be sustainable. Soo... maybe a good collection of chess puzzles. Or, maybe, War & Peace so I would finish it.


Avid reader, chess player. I like a great variety of fiction, including historical fiction and crime novels. Always looking for a well-told tale.

What Joe M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I had a great time. It was fun listening to the various views of The Goldfinch.
