Just need a hobby, and it's more fun to read something if you get to discuss it later on.
Mostly science fiction and fantasy. Favorite writers include U K Le Guin, Heinlan, and Asimov. Salman Rushdie has some nice stuff, really like his writing style. I missed the one on Catch-22. That was a good book, although I couldn't get past "Closing Time". Haven't read any of the new popular stuff.
I need a hobby, kind of, so might as well start reading stuff. Gonna complete that list floating around facebook someday, should be fun :)
People are friendly and outspoken, mostly. The group this time was rather too large for this this time around, but maybe we could give a bit more time to going "round the table" for opinions. There were a lot of people who didn't speak their mind. Also, while I understand that some people might just want to read, but it would be nice to do a little sort of introduction at the start before we do the discussion proper, as it's really hard to attribute an opinion to a person with just a face and not a name.
