Book Club Woes

You know what I want? A book club for adults who have zero interest in the latest New York Times Best Seller.

Who would rather reread Percy Jackson, or pick up a graphic novel from the kid’s section of the library just out of curiosity, or grab a nonfiction book about matchmakers in London in World War II, or read A Tale of Two Cites because Dickens is hilarious (and can also make me cry). 122 more words


A Tale of Two Fitness Centers

Last night I visited for the first time in a long time a fitness center to which I belonged more than twenty years ago. It was once owned by a friend of mine who bought the club with his credit card and built it up to 1000 members before selling the membership roll to a pair of developers with plans to combine that member base with another nearby club to wrap them together with an architectural plan and pitch nearby hospitals to build a medically based fitness center on property the developers already owned near a major road. 1,226 more words

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going straight to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way– in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
