What is your favorite book or books?

I'm a big fan of Daniel Borstin and Jared Diamond and hope to be able to discuss their books sometime. Lately I've been deeply absorbed in Diamond's "Collape: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. I also enjoy novels of historical periods that are good at describing everyday life and getting by. I love wit and humor and Jane Austen rocks. Literate modern fiction is also very enjoyable.


I'm an avid reader of literary fiction and intelligent non-fiction who also loves sci-fi and fantasy. Increasingly I am reading more non-fiction in the area of how things came to be and why things are the way they are.

What Pat R. is saying about this Meetup Group

Good first meeting. Potluck idea is very nice. A good group of ladies. Looking forward to future meetings. We will need to work to recruit guys. Meeting planners were very organized.
