    Members who haven’t read the book
    Come anyway. Not everyone can finish every book, but non-readers may still have valuable insights.

    Disagreements about the book
    Be gracious! There is no one way to experience or interpret a book. In fact, differing opinions are good.

    Members who prefer to socialize
    Discussion time is limited to the book. Book discussions are first, social members is afterward.  It's a busy life so some of us have to go.
