Tired of joining book clubs only to end up reading stacks of books that aren't your style?? Think outside the box and join us for something different!

Each month, the group will pick a genre, not a book, for the upcoming month. You find a book in that genre that you want to read, then share that book with the group. Yes, everyone reads something different, but we discuss how our books each fit the genre and members get to hear about other books that they might want to read in the future.

Possible genres: Sci Fi, Travel, Biography, Short Stories, Mystery, Fiction before 1900...the possibilities are endless! This type of book club isn't for everyone, so if you're ready to try something out of the ordinary, join the group and give it a try!

Most gatherings will be in the Maryland/Montgomery County area and will be meeting on Saturdays or Sundays.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
