What authors, books define you, make you think, make you laugh?

I read books on many topics, but I tend towards science and history. I read everything from Janet Evanovitch to books on physics. I subscribe to magazines from SciAm Mind to Harper's to Time, but I don't want to be defined by what I'm reading.

What do you hope to get out of the club?

Meeting more often to talk about books. I went a few times to the Newport Beach Public Libary meetings on books, but more than half don't fit my schedule, so I'm looking for other discussion groups.

Describe a successful discussion.

Where I have been able to read a book that I have wanted to read but now have a reason to make the effort to finish it. The book ends up giving me a new and vauable perspective, and I meet new friends when discussing how the book resonated with others.

Are you a talker? Listener? Icebreaker? All or noneof the above?

All of the above. I listen to find out about others people.


I like to read and discuss many topics.
