[close] We are a group of people who are reading addicts. We read anything and everything and love nothing more than discussing what we have just read. We read around a different genre every month which is chosen and voted upon by our group members, so are the books we read. We also have monthly short stories, games, challenges, competitions and general discussions to keep you entertained when you aren't reading. We are an Adult only group, so please don't try and join unless you are adult

[close] Whether you prefer Faulkner, O'Connor, McCullers or more recent authors of Southern Literature such as Clyde Edgerton, Tom Franklin, William Gay, or Mark Childress, this is the place for you. We will have group reads of two book per month. Group reads will be based on member nominations and polls. While this group is not for adults only, I encourage our younger members to be old enough to attend R rated movies without accompaniment by an adult. The topics for discussion here are meant for mature audiences.

[close] Jackson, Tennessee based club. Read what you want, when you want! Though, we may choose to read something together every now and then if the group desires. But, at the very least, this is a place where West Tennesseans can chat about our love of books! The option is open to meet in person if there is enough interest throughout the group. We can begin that discussion as time goes on and as we get the group going.
