:i actually thought we could meet the same way actual book clubs do - for example, i am currently in a book club that meets in a cafe in soho each month - with our "history club" we would be doing the same thing except reading historically themed books (for example i just received the John Adams biography for xmas) and then we could discuss the historical
figure, how accurate the book was, things we learned, things we disagreed with, etc. and the books don't necessarily have to be about a figure in history - we could read about events, wars, philosophical movements, etc. - we don't even have to stick to strictly American history (i actually focused on European in college) - the group can always discuss and decide each month what they would like to
do - and now i am really going to sound like a geek, but whatever, we could even watch movies, etc. - there i have embarassed myself enough - i yield the floor for anyone who would like to jest - DIANA
To reply privately: If the person posting this message left their e-mail address, we inserted some random characters to prevent spammers from harvesting their address. Spammers do this with automated "bots" that constantly search the Web looking for e-mail
addresses. Since you're a human being, not a bot, you can easily obtain the real address by removing the text that says "ThisisToPreventSpam-XYZ-RemoveThis." including the random number XYZ and the period at the end. For example, <whitten@ThisIsToPreventSpam-123-RemoveThis.despammed.com> would become <chris-(@)-interesting.com>.
