Jacksonville, FL 32246
We'll discuss what we've read, choosing from among
1) This month only. anything by JD Salinger, (January 1, 1919 ? January 27, 2010)> Since his work includes short stories and novellas, this is a great choice if you are pressed for time.
2) This month only, A People's History of the United States
by Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922 ? January 27, 2010).
3 This month and as long as there is interest, Let The Great World Spin
by Colum McCann
4) This month and as long as there is interest, The Ascent of Money
by Niall Ferguson.
If you have been reading or wanted to read a book from any of the past lists and want it included, let me know!

If you respond "yes" or "maybe" please indicate what you will be reading. I say "please" to sound polite, but if you don't I will nag you relentlessly until you do!
Remember that if you are interested in a book that you don't have time to read in full before the meeting, that's no problem, come and talk about what you HAVE read, come another time and talk about the rest...or not!
I will have read everything on this month's list, so whatever you pick, there will be at least one other person who's read the same thing, although experience tells me that's not at all necessary to enjoying a meeting.
If you are reading something else that you'd like included, let me know by Sunday, Feb 2 and I will add it so long as it meets our general criteria, i.e. thought provoking, broad interest, no genre fiction, no fistfight starters in the domains of religion or politics.
I've scheduled the meeting for the B&N at St Johns Town Center, if a majority want to go someplace where wine and more elaborate food are served,we can switch to The Grape at the same center, that's also a good venue, but we can revisit that when the responses are in.
Please respond (with book choice info!!!!!!!!) as soon as you can. The book choice indication request is equally applicable to those who indicate "yes" or "maybe."
Thanks, hope to see great teeming crowds of you in February.
