Which topics do you enjoy reading about and discussing the most?

I like discussing sociology and psychology the most. If I am not going to discuss a book, then I usually read memoirs.

Any favorite non-fiction books (or authors)?

Difficult question. Some non-fiction books I have particularly liked are "Crazy Like Us: Globalization of the American Psyche," "The Geography of Bliss," "My Stroke of Insight," and "The Beauty Myth."

Name at least one non-fiction book you would like to discuss with the group.

"The Omnivore's Dilemma," by Michael Pollen, "Are Prisons Obsolete," by Angela Davis or "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness."

Why would you like to join this particular group?

Heard about it through another meetup group--seems like a good variety of different books. Also, I don't finish non-fiction books unless I am going to discuss them, so I am looking for external motivation to do so.

Introduction

I love learning new things and discussing them
