Fiction Book Club

Hi Everyone,

We started the book club in the hopes of meeting other people who love to read and want to share that passion through discussion with other like minded people.

For this first book club everyone put in suggested books and we chose out of a hat (not really a hat, it was a bowl). We now have 11 books that we will meet and discuss on a monthly basis. The person that suggested the book will lead discussion for that book and bring some snack foods. I will also ask a few other people to bring some snack foods. Some Book Club meetups we will have at my home and others we will have at another location like a restaurant, coffee shop, park, etc.

Anyone can RSVP to an event without having come to previous book club meetups, just read the book and come as you are.

For this meetup we will be discussing "Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemmingway

This link has the list of books and our Book Club meetup dates:

All of the books can be found at the Toronto Public Library, many of them you can get as ebooks from the library.

We look forward to seeing you!

    Hi, I'm wondering whether I could join the event. I did read the book - but that was way back in elementary school (i.e. my recollection is a bit hazy). So I'm primarily thinking of checking out the event (I haven't been a member of a book club before) to possibly join more actively in the future. Pls advise.

      Of course you can come. Don't worry if you haven't read it in awhile. See you there!

    I'm fine with postponing for next weekend

    March 7, 2013

  • Rafal

    looks like the answer is no

    I just noticed Ryan RSVP'ed no to this one as well... I could be mistaken, but was he hosting March? If so, maybe it makes sense postponing.

    Hey Everyone, I am kind of a pickle. I have a baby shower at the same time as the book club meeting. So the options are: 1. you guys can meet at a location and have the book club. 2. We change the date to next weekend Saturday March 16th (another baby shower on the sunday!) . Please leave a comment with your choice. Sorry!!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
