I'd like to wait and get a better feel for the group before making any. I read very widely in young adult literature. I read both fiction and nonfiction in adult genres, but I read broadly rather than deeply in any one of them.
The day of the week matters less to me than the time of the month. I am usually available between the 8th-and 17th of each month. During other periods, Mondays don't work, but other days might or might not.
I love books and am fortunate to have a job that lets me indulge in them. I teach English at Elon University. Of course, not all of my students share my enthusiasm for reading, so book groups are a kind of refuge of like minds.
