Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury - June pick, reschedule!

June's pick is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.


Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.

When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

    Sorry I couldn't make it. Route 8 being closed really put a damper on the whole sitch. Don't hold it against me. I still really love books!

    Really bad storm in Medina. Flood warnings, thunder, lightening. Guess I better stay home. Enjoy the meeting.

    The reservation is under my name "Boltuc"and is INSIDE this time around so we should have no problem with our finicky Cleveland weather. I will post where exactly we are when we get seated but just ask for the table under "Boltuc"if you can't find us. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
