Are you new to Austin?

I lived in Austin for 4 years when I attended UT. After graduation, I moved to Mexia and lived there 20+ years. I am temporarily staying in Austin until my house is ready in late December. Then I will be in Kyle. I love to read but don't always find the time for it. This club will give me incentive to make the time to read while getting familiar with the works of different authors.

Do you prefer heavier or lighter reading?

I have enjoyed both.

Who is your favorite author?

I love James Patterson and Jodi Picoult. The action and suspense of Patterson books is very exciting. Picoult draws out so much emotion. Dan Brown is also a favorite.

What is your favorite type of book?

Most of what I read will have at least a little romance. Some are set far back in history (like the Howard Fast novels beginning with The Immigrants). Thrillers are also a favorite.

Is there any book that you'd like the club to discuss at one of the monthly meetings?

I don't have a particular book I'd like the club to discuss. I do look forward to selections the club offers, however.


I moved to Austin this past summer. I would love opportunities to meet new people, make new friends, and share interests.

What Melissa H. is saying about this Meetup Group

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was my first book club meeting. I enjoyed reading the book very much. Others' interpretations were interesting. I look forward to the next meeting.
