What profession are you in?

IT

Please list at least three books that you would be interested in reading and discussing with the group? (Note you must answer this question with some specific titles)

Collapse by Jared Diamond The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson Paris 1919 by Margaret MacMillan Blink or Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell To End All Wars by Adam Hochschild The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell The Children by David Halberstam

Have you been a member of other book clubs and what did you like or not like about those groups?

Yes. I often didn't like the selection of the books - it was mostly fiction. Half the time people hadn't read the book.

Introduction

I read predominately non-fiction and would enjoy discussions of many of these books.
