Time: 9 PM Eastern, 8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific, and 1:00 UTC.
 
As we did this month, we’re asking each person to bring a book they’ve read to talk about. It can be something they’ve read recently, or long ago; something they loved or hated, or anything in between. While we don’t want to overly constrain the conversation, we’re asking, at least for now, that each person bring to the meeting one book to talk about to allow time for everyone to get a chance to participate.
 
Come and join us in August to talk about one of your favorites, or something you want to warn everyone else away from, or any book that was memorable for any reason.
