What book(s) have you read within the past five years that's changed your life?

The most memorable (and slightly outside the five-year limit) is "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. That book has remained with me philosophically and has probably created a stronger counterpoint in my soci0-economic perspective than any other. "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle and "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz have been the most important spiritual works that I have read within the last five years, and "The Life of Pi" is the most salient fiction novel that I have read recently.

Have you read our "About" page? Do you accept that we are a 100% Commercial-Free Zone, that we only read books available in libraries and used book stores, that membership is open to Denver-area residents only?

I fully agree with this policy. In fact, I purchase books very rarely. The Denver Public Library is my primary source for new reading material. I enjoy patronizing local book stores such as the Tattered Cover, but I do make purchases online (mostly from Amazon) as well.

Have you included your last name or first initial in your profile? (This is critical if you have a first name shared by others in the book club. We need to differentiate you from others.)

My full name shows, but it is Christopher Fields, just in case.

Have you included a photo of yourself in your profile? (Photos of pets or landscapes are fine as secondary images, yet your primary image need to be a photo of you, so can greet you properly at our meetups.)

I have included 2 photos; one is a very clear portrait and the other is a more artistic sepia photograph taken by my best friend (and an amateur photographer) in New Orleans in 2005.

Introduction

I like to say that I'm an avid reader, but it happens in phases. I have not made book reading time on a daily basis for almost a year. I read articles online more than anything else as of Fall 2011. I hope to get back to books soon.

What Christopher is saying about this Meetup Group

lots of eager readers
