Book Club

Postby intellectualsmuse » Fri, 03 Dec 2010 4:37 pm

Looking for some gal pals to discuss books with... read across genres...
Goethe, Ayn Rand, Camus, Austen( and pretty much all the Classics), Robin Cook and even the Twilight Series :D So if you're interested, drop me a PM and we can take it from there. Am 27 f.
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

I have always been curious about these book clubs. What exactly do you all talk about?

I think discussions on any subject ought to be spontaneous and not necessarily in line with a rigid "agenda", so could be all of the above. :)Just a way of meeting people with similar interests and having interesting conversation as opposed to a big get together of sorts.
