Please don't forget to pick up your copy of CLOUD ATLAS and RSVP for the meetup on 1/30 (it's at 1p on a Saturday; just roll out of bed and c!). YOU WILL NEED THE FULL MONTH TO FINISH THIS BOOK, but it's worth the work!!
Please also visit the polls section and let me know what days are easiest for you to meet. I'll take the results into consideration for both next month's meeting and a possible second meetup in Feb. for Cloud Atlas.
THANK YOU to everyone who sent me their suggestions for this year's to-read list! I was very pleased with the poll results this month, and since many titles seemed popular we'll carry those suggestions to February.
We will be doing a mini-swap for those interested on 1/30. If you can, please bring a few books in good condition that you don't mind parting with. I think it's fair to say everyone cleaned up at the last swap.
The Queens Literati is a safe haven for avid readers who find themselves searching for a new book or an intelligent literary society. Maybe you're tired of joining group after group, reading the same kinds of uninspired young adult novels that leave you feeling... well, childish. Maybe you're looking for the opportunity to read a challenging book and follow it up with an insightful discussion. Maybe you're a recent Queens transplant looking to make new friends in the area. Maybe the sudden appearance of overstocked chick lit sections in your local bookstore has got you grinding your teeth at night. Maybe you just need a good excuse to get a little tipsy and eat great carb-loaded food with fun people (we're not here to judge). Whatever your reason, we're here for you.
Every month we meet to discuss a critically lauded book, eat some fabulous Queens fare, and get to know one another. Books are chosen by popular vote, and member suggestions are ALWAYS welcome.
