Are you a solitary creature who lives in constant danger of being crushed by a stack of books? When company comes, do you have to move books off the sofa so they can sit down? Or maybe you're an avid reader looking for other avid readers in a culture that seems uninterested in reading anything more complicated than a cereal box? If so, you've come to the right place.

We'll meet the third Sunday of every month to discuss literary fiction. Why "literary" fiction? It's not because we're a snooty bunch of unemployed English majors--well, not all of us, anyway; it's just that literary fiction gives us more to chew on than those sugary mass-market confections, which, delightful though they may be, tend to melt in your mouth like cotton candy, leaving you ultimately unsatisfied.

So it's all downers and broccoli, right? A bunch of sighing pseudo-intellectuals wearing black eye shadow and berets? No, we don't take ourselves that seriously, and we have a lot of fun. And because we choose books by poll, you'll have some say in what we read. So won't you join us? All are welcome.
