Re: [The-Classics-Book-Club-of-the-North-Met­ro] Nonfiction Classics

I have no objection to reading other nonfictional novels, especially historical.  My problem of attending meetings have been the time of the meetings.  I find it difficult driving at night and 7:00 PM during Fall and Winter is dark.  I read the suggested books, but miss the discussions.  Please keep me on the list and I will join the group when I can.

Thanks John for continuing to coordinate this group.

A valued group member has suggested reading "Eichmann in Jerusalem" and three members have expressed interest in doing that.

 

Since our group was founded, the consensus of our members has been that we will limit our reading selections to classic novels.  I know that our group name says Classic Books...  Certainly there are many, many nonfiction books that are worthy of close reading and discussion.  I read lots of serious nonfiction myself, especially history.

 

I welcome input from our members about this issue.  Perhaps another group can be formed that reads serious nonfiction.  Or we could have more than one monthly meeting for members who want to read and discuss nonfiction in addition to our monthly classic novel that has been our mainstay.
