We are a group of diverse people who love to read. We meet once a month on the third Tuesday. We have some great discussions, a few laughs and encourage making new friends.
Each month we read a new book, which we decide through a group poll. The poll is posted on the meetup site under the "More" tab, then just click on "polls" and vote. We have a variety of books to choose from and try to focus on uplifting books.
The cost is $6 and it includes $5 towards a pot of tea, a cup of coffee or a soda and covers the cost of rental for the location, as well $1 to cover the meetup group administration costs.
The things to consider while reading, for discussion at the next meeting can be found under this link: Things to consider
