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!

But here we go again, embarking on something that I fear is only going to make me want to ditch all the books in the next few months' line-up, and then feel incomplete when I don't actually do it. (Because... Learn more

    I'm SO EXCITED to read this book because I've been wanting to read it for so long! So before I ruin it for myself by reading all of the reviews and spoilers before I even touch the book, I'm just going to leave a quickie from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Their_Eyes_Were_Watching_God Their Eyes Were Watching God is a 1937 novel and...

    In my hunt for South and Central American novelists, there are actually lists devoted to writers that aren't Gabrielle Garcia Marquez. I kept reading compelling articles about Isabelle Allende, but it was only after I was already sold that I realised that we were set to read yet another magical realism book. Oh well, we'll just run with it... Learn more

    Since the last weekend in October is Diwali, this meeting will be held the week before. And since it's October, you know, Halloween and all, we have to read something scary. And since I've never read Stephen King and I'm challenging myself to read something I would NEVER read on my own, we're going to try one by the King of horror. And since... Learn more

    When we read Pride and Prejudice a couple of years ago, it was one of our biggest meetings. And it wasn't ALL women either! I think it will be nice to end off the year... Learn more
