What we're about

We will select books from all non-fiction sub-categories including (but not limited) to Autobiography, Biography & Memoir, Arts & Photography, Business & Money, History, Science & Math, Philosophy, Politics, Social Sciences, Relationships, Reference, Religion & Spirituality, Self-improvement, and Travel. Everything is fair game, except fiction. The group will nominate books and vote on them.

We will meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month at J. Christopher's at Town Center at 10:30 in their private room. It's a quieter room so we can hear each other as we discuss the book. We can enjoy brunch and have fun while discussing our selected book!

I look forward to making new friends and reading new genres with you!

Meet and Discuss "Contagious - Why Things Catch On" by Jonah Berger"

We’re all familiar with the idea of something—a video clip, for example—going viral. But how does it happen? Berger identifies six principles that operate, either singly or in combination, when anything goes viral, including social currency (a restaurant makes itself so hard to find that it becomes famous); emotion (the clip of Susan Boyle’s first appearance on Britain’s Got Talent exploded on YouTube because people reacted to it emotionally); triggers (more people search online for the song “Friday” on Friday than on any other day of the week); and practical value (a man’s video showing how to cleanly shuck a cob of corn exploded due to its useful application). Some of what the author talks about here will seem utterly obvious, but there is plenty of insider stuff as well (for example, the brain trust at Apple debated which way the logo should face on the cover of its laptops: right-side up to the user, or right-side up to someone looking at the laptop’s open lid?). On such decisions are fortunes made. An engaging and often surprising book. --David Pitt (Pub. May 2016, 256 pages)

Meet and Discuss "Blue Latitudes" by Tony Horwitz

J.Christopher's

James Cook's three epic journeys in the eighteenth century were the last great voyages of discovery. When he embarked for the Pacific in 1768, a third of the globe remained blank. By the time he dies in 1779, the map of the world was substantially complete. Captain James Cook's three epic journeys in the 18th century were the last great voyages of discovery. His ships sailed 150,000 miles, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Tasmania to Oregon, from Easter Island to Siberia. He explored more of the earth's surface than anyone in history. By turns harrowing and hilarious, insightful and entertaining, BLUE LATITUDES brings to life a man whose voyages helped create the 'global village' we know today. (Pub. Aug. 2003, 496 pages)
