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!

    "Dangerous Liaisons" by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos

    Charlie's Paradiso
    32 Boat Quay, Singapore (map)
    It's been a while since we've read a French novel, and who couldn't use a little scandalous fiction in their lives? Shout out to Valentina for recommending this book, looking forward to reading something juicy! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Liaisons_dangereuses It is the story of the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, two...

    "Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger

    Needs a location
    Coming soon
    I first read this book for a high school English class, and doubted the teacher's discernment that we were mature enough to read it when several of my classmates got kicks out of highlighting all of the swear words so they can repeat them in class discussions by quoting from the book. I haven't read it as an adult, but I guess you're never... Learn more

    "Zorba the Greek" by Nikos Kazantzakis

    Coming soon
    Reading a Greek novel is another first for the HHBC! This is yet another title I've always heard floating about in book or movie form, but only associate it with passing it over in the video rental shops back in the day when they existed. Also known for his controversial novel The Last Temptation of Christ, Kazantzakis is considered one of... Learn more

    "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte

    Needs a location
    Coming soon
    I've always considered myself more of a Bronte sisters fan than a Jane Austen fan, so it's about time we read a Bronte novel. This is my favourite one, and I'm happy to re-read this one after many years!

    "Roots: The Saga of and American Family" by Alex Haley

    Needs a location
    Coming soon
    One of our most faithful members, Andrew, has been suggesting this book for a long time, and I couldn't agree more that it should be on our list. I know this is a long book (704 pages on Amazon), but we have 5 weeks between this meetup and the one before it, plus since this is posted 4 months in advance hopefully you'll have time to plan....
