What we're about

This is a group for people who love reading a wide variety of genres &/or for those who love reading a book; seeing the movie adaptation then having an honest, friendly discussion. let's discuss books & movies over a cup of coffee, meal, wine or beer. making friends and discovering new authors that make us swoon, cringe, laugh and cry seems perfect to me! I want women, men, Non-binary, gay, straight, para, poly... whatever!! all sizes & races! Guidelines: -everybody will contribute to our book choices as well as planned outings outside of books. -no room for judgments! Maybe, Twilight & 50 Shades weren't your cup of tea- that's ok. the way a book impacts you has nothing to do with some "majority" opinion. -let's not be restricted by social "norms" in our discussions. if you thought the victim was a whiny bitch, say so. do you like all of the characters but the protagonist? say so! if you thought that gay love scene was hot, say so! I'm sure I will concur! differences make this world more enjoyable! -maybe you're unable to meet regularly but want to chat about books. I know I've read into the wee hours when something big happens and have no recourse for those emotions! so, let's have email discussions as well. shoot out an email, "...Holy SHIT! I can't believe she just did that!" -I tend to have a potty mouth but I am NOT a negative person. so be warned!

to my fellow dominant, outgoing personalities, it'll be up to us to ensure the quiet ones don't get lost in the background! While I love to talk, having people go unheard is my abhorrence!

Meet Ups- we'll usually meet at the Local Denhouse because it's conveniently located and it is accommodating for our current needs. whenever possible, rsvp if you will or will not be attending, so that i know if our numbers are too big for our usual room. normally, an average of 80% of those that rsvp actually show up. so, there will be times that have us all squeezing into the room. Please bare with us as we adjust to our growing numbers.

A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

this is a Pulitzer Prize winner! and Yet there are so many people that did not like it, AT ALL!! I LOVE that! to be honest, they had me with, "interlocking narratives!" I love a story with multiple perspectives!

Happy Reading!

Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro
This author won a Nobel Prize in Literature! I'm not sure that I've ever read a Nobel Prize winner.
Kazuo Ishiguro is a much beloved author, so I wasn't surprised to see many of the fans expressing disappointment for this particular book. That's often the case with popular authors. Try not to compare!
Good Luck and Happy Reading!

Keep an eye out for the location as we get closer to the date. I have no idea what things will be like in March! I hope we can be back at our local spot by then!
