Book clubbing

Next week marks the inaugural meeting of a men's book club I'm organizing. I've kind of wanted to be in one for years, in spite of the fact that most book clubs I know of spend little time or energy on the books themselves and wind up discussing, I don't know, magazines or pet care. But I've only bumped up against women-only clubs, so I didn't get to see them from The Inside.

No book for the first meeting, but we've got some good suggestions to debate for the following meeting. I think maybe Dracula, one I didn't suggest myself but would definitely like to read.

Anyway, we'll test to see if guys can behave any differently. I think it's a wise move to hold it at a pub, with any non-reader responsible for buying a round....
