Why our group? What do you hope to contribute as a member of our group? PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST FILL OUT ALL QUESTIONS TO BE CONSIDERED..

I am particularly interested in the range of books you consider. I try to push myself to try all sorts of genres, but also to read books that will encourage me to think. (And who better to do that with than a book club?)

Favorite Authors??

I love classic authors like Steinbeck, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, but I really enjoy Elizabeth Kostova and Carlos Ruiz Zafon as well.

Beloved Books??

East of Eden is my favorite book. (I actually need to get a new copy because the binding on mine is almost in half.) I took a short stories seminar in undergrad and read "In Our Time," and LOVED it. One of my favorite modern books is "Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon -- I was instantly addicted to the intrigue.

Tell us a little more about who you are, where you come from...

I'm from Cincinnati and an avid reader (to the point where my second grade teacher had to have a conference with my mother because I was reading TOO much) and I always love to meet fellow bookworms. I also enjoy running to stay in shape. While I was in college I completed two half marathons and two full marathons.

Introduction

Hi! I just moved to New York and am looking for a great group of people who share my love of reading! My background is in English and comm., and right now I'm working in the entertainment industry. I love everything from classics to chick lit.
