Hi! If you're hungry for good literature, you've stumbled across the right page! There are several lists floating around these days of the 100 best books of all time. Some of these books have changed society and the world as we know it (being an American, I'm thinking of The Jungle, or Uncle Tom's Cabin). These lists are varied based on who is determining them and they contain everything from Shakespeare and Charles Dickens to "Bridget Jones Diary" and the Harry Potter series. What's amazing is that the average person has only read about 4 books from any of these given lists. My desire is to find other individuals who are hungry for some good literature accompanied by good friends and maybe some good food and wine, to discuss some of these literary works of art. There are plenty of options to choose from and something sure to fit just about any preference. There's nothing like diving into a good book, but it's even better when you have people to discuss it with.

Interested? Join the group, check out our current selection, and get started reading!

Thanks for visiting!

    "Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula LeGuin

    Needs a location
    Coming soon
    While looking for a good sci-fi book considered a "classic", I asked three lit-loving men for recommendations and two out of the three recommended this book as one of their favourites. (The other one recommended Dune, which we've already read.) It just so happens that this is a quintessential feminist novel, which should fit nicely on the... Learn more

    "Dream of the Red Chamber" by Cao Xueqin

    Needs a location
    Coming soon
    Since this is one of the four classics of Chinese literature, it was inevitable that we would read this at some point, and I for one have been looking forward to it. Also known as Dream of the Red Mansions and The Story of the Stones, Hóng lóu Mèng, (its most used Chinese title), is easily 2,000 pages depending on which translation you get.... Learn more
