Now that all the holidays (except for Super Bowl Sunday, of course) are past, it is time to get back to reading. But reading can be a solitary endeavor and winter is a solitary time, so how to get yourself out of the house more? Join a book club.
I am thinking about sponsored clubs that are open to anyone. A quick rundown of the ones I found this week:
Dominican University Book Club. There is a meeting this week, 01-25-11 at 7 PM in Lewis Hall. For more info: www.dom.edu
