What novels have you enjoyed reading lately?

I LOVED The Hakawati - realistic and fantastic at the same time.

Please recommend a novel for our group to discuss. Why do you suggest this book?

I would love to read Karen Tei Yamashita's I Hotel. I am relatively new to the Bay Area (grew up in Buffalo, moved to Charlottesville, VA and then abroad for 10 years) so I am always drawn to books I feel will inform me about my new home.

What interests you about our group, and what do you hope it will become?

The idea of meeting new books and new people is an exciting one! I hope this group will become a place where where we can both learn and laugh, and where we can share ideas and see ours challenged in a spirit of respect and comraderie (sp?)


Hi! I'm Crystal. I'm 43 and an avid reader of almost everything (maybe not so much SciFi but I'm willing to try!) I have never been in a book club but I'd love to find one.

What Crystal O. is saying about this Meetup Group

A book club all other book clubs should aspire to!
