What We've Read (2001-Present)

The Night Stand

The Night Stand are the books that some members are reading collectively in addition to the Book-of-the-Month selection.  These are "side" books in which we usually discuss a bit more informally and freely in a more relaxed atmosphere over dinner and drinks.   What started as an impromptu event and is now gaining momentum....Join Us!

Mildly entertaining, however we've read better erotica.  A slow start with a disappointing ending.
