A book, some coffee and great conversations. Hooked on Books is for everyone who feels a connection to Books and Reading. We read different genres and meet to discuss a new book, to ponder, share our thoughts and talk about the chosen book. Our Meetings are on the second Saturday of the month at 11 a.m.
Our discussions usually last about an hour, with an extra 15 minutes or so to let everyone catch up with each other and take in the setting.
There is a quarterly poll to determine what we'll read for the next three months. The book selection process is simple – members suggest books and vote for the books we want to read for the next three months. Our book suggestion and voting months are: Dec, Mar, June & Sep.
These meetups are fairly relaxed, so if you weren't able to finish the book or haven't had a chance to read it, you are still more than welcome to come to the meeting just to discuss books in general, laugh, share stories and make new friends!
And as Dr. Seuss said,“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn the more places you'll go."....
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
