"Book clubs are one effort to set up community in the landscape. They are our bid to stay on the same page across the blur of modern life."

That pretty much sums it up for me.

"Early clubs served largely as a domestic and populist alternative to higher education"

And both of those are mainly why I joined, and happily stay, ten years (nearly 100 meetings?!?!) later.

If we have a 100th meeting coming up, I should make another dang cake!
