    With roughly three weeks, you have plenty of time to dig into one of the books selections, roughly chosen around the topics of romantic love, sex, and marriage...or not. Here's the list again:

    *Sex at Dawn; How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What it Means for Modern Relationships by Christopher Ryan and Calcida Jetha *Say Her Name by Fransisco Goldman *Marriage, a History: How Love Conquered Marriage by Stephanie Coontz *Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone by Eric Kleinenberg *Outlaw Marriages: The Hidden Histories of Fifteen Extraordinary Same-Sex Couples by Rodger Streitmatter *Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage by Elizabeth Gilbert.

    If you like to read, I am pretty sure you can find at least one book on this varied list to read and enjoy. Put a title that looks tasty into your favorite search engine and see if you aren't intrigued!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
