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!

    Even though I loved Greek mythology in my pre-teen years and still find the stories fascinating, if you had suggested I pick up Homer any time in the last 30(something) years I would have responded with a yawn and some sort of statement akin to "yeah, yeah, right after I become a professional snake charmer." However as I've been looking over... Learn more
