Akron, OHUSA 44301
February 4, 2013
I moved to Akron a little over a year ago and trying to find my "niches." I am a graduate of Hiram college with a B.A. in cellular botany. I love book clubs because of the new perspectives and authors I am introduced to.
Classical literature, such as Saul Bellow and Somerset Maughm; fiction, such as Salman Rushdie and Truman Capote; and science fiction. I do read non-fiction on subjects such as theology, the sciences, and biographies. I also enjoy P.J. O'Rourke. I admit that a lot of my reading is scientific papers on anthropology, evolution, sociology, and psychology.
No. I am unable to read electronic media and I much prefer hard copy because there's a lot of "ritual" involved in reading
Not as many as I want. Perhaps ten...
Some Panera's have a separate room that can be used for free. In general, I really like going to coffee houses, especially offbeat ones, like the Nervous Dog here in Akron
Thank you so much for joining Horror & Sci-Fi Fans Unite! Feel free to suggest any type of get-together that might interest you. Looking forward to meeting you!
I hope it was nothing serious and that you are feeling better very soon. I hope to meet you in October!
