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!

    When I was in high school in the U.S. some of my friends had to read this for a literature, and all I heard them do was complain about it. I always thought this book was going to be incredibly boring, after it was given to me as a gift and I started reading it out of polite obligation, I remembered how teenagers complain about anything they...

    Murder, mystery, ghosts, everything we want in a novel to read during Halloween!  Oh yeah, and throw in some romance, dancing and singing, too.  I'm pretty sure everyone knows a little something about the story line, even if you haven't seen the highly acclaimed (and rightly so in my opinion) musical or movie. In case you needed one, here's... Learn more
