Greetings everyone! I want to welcome the new members for joining, and also to tell you that the welcome e-mail that is sent out when you join is out of date. I'm trying to figure out how to edit it, but for now if it's a bit confusing just ignore it.
On another note, I also want to encourage everyone who is planning on attending either of our upcoming meetings to come with discussion topics in mind. As I've already told many of you, I am NOT an expert! I started this club so that we could all learn from each other, gain a better understanding and get different perspectives, not so that I can pretend to be a literary teacher. However, some of you ARE experts or are on your way to becoming one, so please don't hold back your wealth of knowledge from the rest of us! I will be ready with discussion topics on hand, but the more each of you contribute the better.
As always, don't forget to send me any suggestions or post them in the Ideas section!
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!
