I love reading. I love having smart people to read and discuss books with. As a teacher I always became friends with the English teachers. I was so jealous of their subject that perhaps if I had become an English teacher, I would still be a teacher. Eh, probably not. Anyway, in Philadelphia I was in two books clubs. One with English teachers that enjoyed good books and good wine. Another with a mix of friends that enjoyed good wine and occasionally read the books. I fit in just fine with both groups. So one of my English teacher friends who I still rely on for advice, intelligent conversation, and laughter has blog which allows me to get these things from her more often than a phone call once in awhile and a visit to Philly a couple times a year. This is her blog. You should read it. After that, you should read my post on her "Maladjusted Book Club" I've pasted it in the next box.
