      It will be great to meet you. Don't worry about missing the discussion. We seem to always go backwards and refer to many of the other books we have read in many of our discussions.

  • Jeff

    Unfortunately, I can't make it now. I'll see you guys in February. Thanks.

    I haven't read or understood many classics (read some in high school, but didn't really understand them). I now have a cheap bookstore (Half Price Books) near where I'm currently living and they gave out a calendar with lists of themed books to read that month (like great romance novels in February). Could we include some of those, or would someone like to read and discuss them with me?

    January 24, 2014

    • Julia W

      We have many avid readers that probably be interested in reading along with you. Bring your suggestions.
