Hi, I'm Bill, and I rarely get to read for pleasure (most of my reading is done for work purposes). I'm looking forward to the chance to discover new books, have a relaxing talk about them, and meet some new people around this area.
Loved the book, Bill! So glad we decided to read it! Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
In response to your post about books to read. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Its a narrative nonfiction about building the worlds fair in Chicago plus the first serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims. I learned so much about history and everyone connected to this event.
Thanks for coming! I enjoyed hearing your perspective on the book, and hope you had a nice time.
In response to your comment--no, you probably won't be the only guy! There are a handful of guys in our group, one of them being my co-organizer, Dan. And even if you are the only one who makes it to this meetup, that is okay!
Hello Bill! Look forward to meeting you in December!
