Not quite sure what is drawing me to a book club (never been part of one), always viewed reading as largely a solitary pleasure. But am perhaps looking for an environment that will draw me back to reading or for well-read mentors.
Past favourite reads were of Herman Hesse, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ernest Hemmingway, William Golding, Gore Vidal, Vikram Seth, Jhumpa Lahiri. Aside from the highbrow quotable reads, also relish pulp/popular fiction works of Stephen King, Piers Anthony, as well as short stories, fairy tales, comic books.

Moderate reader who fell off the wagon some years ago. But hasn’t forgotten the feeling of complete immersion in a story.
