If you've rsvp'd for August 9, thank you. If you've committed and posted your book choice, thank you to the power of 10! If you're not in the exponentially thanked group and you may be able to come, please take a moment today to commit to a book from the current list, or from a past list as long as you give me notice, and post your book choice plus your yes or maybe RSVP today.
Remember, even if you haven't finished your book of choice, as long as you've read enough to have some thoughts on it, you're welcome to come and discuss. Also, I guarantee that as long as you indicate by tomorrow, I will have read any book on the current list that you commit to, so there will be at least one other person there who's read your book, if that matters to you.
Who is should join? People who like to read and (non-argumentatively!) discuss a variety of interesting thought provoking books. Women are welcome! Men are welcome! People from any and all backgrounds, welcome! Whether you remember the Great Depression or you were born in the Clinton administration, if you're a grown-up who likes to meet and chat with other adults with wide ranging interests, you are welcome. If you came to Jacksonville from any part of our big varied planet, or if you were born at the confluence of the St Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean and think anything away from the First Coast is exotic travel, YOU ARE WELCOME.
We have a different format: each member chooses from a list books revolving around a theme, which changes every month. Selections skew toward non-fiction, but there is usually a fictional selection. Suggestions from members for themes or individual books are more than welcome.
