What we're about

****Note: What makes us DIFFERENT-

Instead of agreeing on one book to read for each meeting, we each read whatever we want, then share with the rest of the group. Our discussions are always fresh and interesting!

This isn't a typical book club. In fact, one of our members confided that she never refers to this meetup as her 'book club'. She prefers describing it as something like, 'a group of people who get together and talk about books'. We're independent readers who are curious about everything.

Books we've talked about cover just about anything; some example topics include: the history of salt, a man lost at sea, why some technological developments should make us optimistic about the future of the planet, creativity at Pixar, neuroplasticity, American sub-cultures, biographies, the economics, geography and biology underpinning the development of the New World, the politics of mental illness, harnessing a positive mental attitude, the changing role of the police in the US, walking the Appalachian trail, communication in the workplace, and much much much much more.****

Have you read a non-fiction book lately? Come and tell us about it! This relaxed and friendly book group is for those who enjoy reading non-fiction, asking questions, and having thought provoking, fun discussions on a wide variety of topics. Read whatever you want, then come and spend a few minutes discussing it with us. No formal book reports- don’t worry! Paper books, e-books and audio books are all considered ‘books’ for the purposes of this group :)

Let's talk about the books you've been reading.
