From Christopher:

The PoP Book Club just finished its third book, ‘The Watchmen’ by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. This was a first for many of the readers, as not a lot of us had read graphic novels, but the overall opinion was that it was a good book. We started a rating system to help showcase the groups opinion, and we give ‘the Watchmen’ a solid 3 and 1/2 frogs out of a possible 5 (actually the consensus was more along the lines of 4 out of 5, but I just wanted to see PoP post half a frog, ok?) Also, we have tentative plans for dinner and a movie when the movie based on this book comes out in March next year, for anyone that wants to get in on the fun!

Our next read is a non-fiction work by Antony Wild titled ‘Coffee: A Dark History’. We will be meeting at the Red Derby on Monday, January 5th at 7:00pm to get the process going (and to get our drink/grub on), and then again at the Petworth Library on Wednesday, January 21 at 7:00pm to really break into the discussion :)

The group is growing with every new book, so don’t be left out! Grab a cup of joe, a copy of ‘Coffee: A Dark History’, and join us next month!
