Welcome! We'll be discussing books that everyone is buying right now. Thrillers, mysteries, romance, biography - if it's in the conversation, we'll be discussing it.
I'm a writer with nine published novels myself (including the Avery Cates series of Science Fiction novels and and The Ustari Cycle), as well as numerous short stories, and countless reviews and book-based think pieces for Barnes and Noble. I read several books a week and always have thoughts on them, good or bad.
I have a BA in English from Rutgers University, and then I thought, is this really necessary? And never went back to school again.
Anyone can read a book. It's what you do with it that matters.
