Well the reasons are rather simple. (1) you're organized; (2) you have a history of meeting with good attendance; and (3) I was drawn to you by the eclectic collection of titles that you have read and will be reading.
For fiction . . . Arthur Conan Doyle, John Le Carre, and Frederick Forsythe. For literature. . . Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad, and Siri Hustvedt
The two old friends I go regularly are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig ( I know it's not really ficition or literature but it has a grip on me). The Complete Sherlock Holmes (short stories and novels).
I live in Manhattan, Inwood, with my dog, Panya and work in financial services, anti-money laudering compliance. Originally from Long Island (went to Stony Brook, BA in political science), spent five years in Florida before coming back.
Hi. I'm Jim and I am a reader. I am in the process of rediscovering fiction and literature and felt that a book club would be a helpful way to do that. My previous tastes were for history and biography.
Others should join for the following reasons. 1. This is a well organized group with a history of meeting and a group of long standing members 2. The book list is eclectic and if someone wants to read something different and needs help finding a title and someone to talk about it with this is the group. 3. The fact that there is a meal involved, seems to me, to make the readers more committed to the book and the group.
