What we're about
Fallen into a rut where reading is concerned?
We are hoping to find ten, men and women who want to read and vigorously discuss accessible, yet mind challenging fiction and non-fiction over cocktails on a monthly basis. We will draw our material from the following two lists.
http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/100-best-novels/ 100 Best Novels
http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/100-best-nonfiction/ 100 Best Non-Fiction
We are absolutely open to the critic's and reader's choice versions of the top 100 lists as well. We think comparing the subject matter and quality of the thinking from both viewpoints could be interesting.
Lists like these stimulate meaningful discussion, see this NYTimes pieces criticizing these lists here
I have found them helpful in getting back to reading more well written works on thought provoking subject matter, but I certainly appreciate the opposing point of view in every discussion.
