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.
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.
