When I moved to New York, I imagined sitting with friends, enjoying a bottle of wine, and discussing a great novel we had just finished, but my friends dont always have the same taste in novels nor interest in reading. Apparently Eric imagined the same, albeit with a pipe and tweed sport coat with leather elbow patches. We would like to organize a social book club for couples looking for an opportunity to meet people with similar interests, with open minds to read new literature and a common desire to share our thoughts over a glass of wine and/or tea/coffee.
Our proposed rules (flexible of course) would be meet monthly, no book over 400 pages, fiction (flexible), and alternating book discussion leaders. Example of books weve recently read: The Corrections, In the Shadow of the Banyan, The Piano Turner, Lost In Shangri-La, A Devil in the White City, Lost City of Z, Snowdrops, Killer Angels and Consider the Lobster

We are a group of gay guys of all ages who meet the first Tuesday of every month at 7 pm at the Jefferson Market branch of the public library on 6th Avenue & West 10th Street. We read an eclectic range of books from classics to newly-released works. We don't necessarily read books with a gay theme or characters and always open to suggestions. Very easy going; more social than academic. You don't necessarily have to commit to coming every single month, just whenever your schedule or reading tastes permit.
Hi, I know a lot of you are looking to unleash your inner history buff. Good news: I'm starting a social book club for people like you!
We'll read both history and historical fiction- whatever's a fun time. Bigraphies are fair game, too!
Let's make some new friends over food, drink, and common interests. E-mail if interested!
New book club! Looking to read historical fiction, adventure, some of the great books, classics, and mix in some popular best-sellers. AS WELL, please view this as a way to expand your social network! So if you are a smart, fun, intellectually curious type that wants to make some new friends, this should be perfect for you. We will meet once a month and depending on the group's interest, have some other social/educational outings as well.
I am posting this because I would like to either join or start a new book club. I've been suffering from a bad bout of anxiety and depression and really need to get out to socialize more and get my mind off things. This would also be a good opportunity to make new friends as well. I am a 31 year old female, and would like to keep the age at 28 and up if possible. I was thinking about meeting once a month to discuss that month's book pick at either a bar, cafe or restaurant.
If anyone else out there suffers from anxiety/depression and would like to meet similar people and enjoy good books, then perhaps we can start this little group.
I enjoy reading fiction as well as non fiction and am open to new suggestions. Recently I have been reading Kurt Vonnegut, Jane Austen, assorted biographies ( both historic and pop culture), craft books, Stephen King, The Hunger Games Trilogy and various religious books.
Would anyone be interested in a club? I am located in Queens but am in downtown Manhattan most of the time for work.
Send me a message if this is something you think you would be into.
