Presented by Dr. J. Larry Allums

Novelist Ben Dolnick recently wrote in The New York Times that “the mind — for all its endless rationalizations and solemn prohibitions — is a ceaseless pleasure hound. Once I’m actually enjoying a book, it feels as if the pages are turning themselves; I find myself reading in all the little pockets of time that were once reserved for the serious business of checking to see if my dishwasher pods have shipped. And pleasure is, after all, the reason I read. When I’ve found the right book, and I’m reading it the right way, reading is fun — head-tingling, goosebump-raising fun. It’s a vivid, continuous dream that is somehow both directed from without and cast from within, and I get to be awake for it.” A good depiction of our book group readers; give us a try.
