Hi! If you're hungry for good literature, you've stumbled across the right page! There are several lists floating around these days of the 100 best books of all time. Some of these books have changed society and the world as we know it (being an American, I'm thinking of The Jungle, or Uncle Tom's Cabin). These lists are varied based on who is determining them and they contain everything from Shakespeare and Charles Dickens to "Bridget Jones Diary" and the Harry Potter series. What's amazing is that the average person has only read about 4 books from any of these given lists. My desire is to find other individuals who are hungry for some good literature accompanied by good friends and maybe some good food and wine, to discuss some of these literary works of art. There are plenty of options to choose from and something sure to fit just about any preference. There's nothing like diving into a good book, but it's even better when you have people to discuss it with.

Interested? Join the group, check out our current selection, and get started reading!

Thanks for visiting!

    To start off the newest list for 2016, I thought we'd start off with a nice, heartwarming, dystopian look into the future, where the world is going to ruin and women's bodies are no longer their own... But seriously, I've heard so many people talk about this book as one of their favourites, that it's pretty easy to add to our list. From the... Learn more

    Although this is a "classics" book club, this will make the 3rd book in a row written within the last 50 years! There's still a lot of older reads we haven't taken on yet, but I've been intrigued by many of the books on the Must Read list from the 20th century. This book is one that has come up several times in people's personal Top 10 lists,... Learn more

    Sylvia Plath is most well known for three things: her depression, her poetry, and her only novel, the autobiographical The Bell Jar. An up close look into her mental illness, this should be a good discussion of the contributors to what made Plath feel she was trapped under a bell jar. Here's a short synopsis from Good Reads:http://... Learn more

    My quest for reaching out beyond the well-known Western literature has led me to this novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Set in Nigeria during the country's civil war, it focuses on themes such as war, love, politics and identity in post-colonial Africa. It received the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2007, and was listed in Time Magazine's "Most... Learn more

    I still can't believe I haven't read an Agatha Christie novel, and by the sounds of it, this will be a thrilling one to put under my belt, especially since this is the 7th best selling novel of all time. If you want to read about how the title went from one offensively racial slur to another, visit the wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org... Learn more
