(Today)   Only 12 percent of book clubs have any men in them. So what does an all-male book club do? Pretty much the same as the ladies: drink whisky, grill meat, bet on the ponies, break boards with their hands, smoke stogies, and rank books from 1 to 6 beers   (today.com) divider line

I didn't realize men could read.

At the local library book club, there's about a dozen regulars and three of us are male.  The average age is probably closing in on seventy, but still...

I like to read books, but have zero interest in discussing them?

Anyway, I'm rereading Gregory Mcdonald's Flynn books, because of Confess, Fletch. Maybe I'll reread Fletch as well, who knows?

I'm a member of a Women's comic book club. Currently, we're reading King Deadpool, drinking wine and discussing how much we wanna see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine make out with Deadpool while riding a pegacorn. innwisjL'fn

Weren't Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in a book club? Just putting that out there.

The latter is one hell of a conception, even for Mr. Tingle.  Does he have a dartboard?

Every book club I've joined has cooled after they realized I read the book, have a lecture prepared, and take home assignments.

When the wife and I were in a book club, we called ourselves, "a drinking club with a book problem."

My former church has a Men's book club. Yeah, beer is involved. But the couple of times I attended, they had some interesting material (a lot of social justice/guilt assuaging stuff).

I knew a skydiving club that said the same thing. Except, y'know, about skydiving.

I'd rather skydive than read most of the new stuff. Naked, cock slapping all around.

I've been an avid reader my entire life, but I read for enjoyment, not as some kind of social function.  I used to see my wife's book club gettogethers every now and again (hosting rotated among the members), and they almost never talked about the book.  Hell, most of them didn't even read the book, my wife included.

Why would you want to be in a club that tells you what to read? I want to pick what I read. And I also don't want to discuss it with anyone.

That, too.  As much as I love reading, I hated every book I was required to read in school, simply because I was required to read it.

Ponies?

DecemberNitro: Ponies?


Language often allows the substitution of informal or even slang terms for their proper counterparts, as a means of indicating familiarity, affection, or expertise regarding the subject at hand. For example: Hall of Fame pitcher Randy Johnson was a master at throwing the fastball, but fans, teammates, and sportscasters would often describe his pitches as "heat" or "gas," slang terms which suggest the energetic nature of the pitch in an inventive and lively way.

In just this manner, racehorses are often referred to as "ponies" by enthusiasts of the sport, and while betting on them may not be wise, these fans are smart enough to know that ponies aren't literally being raced around one and a half miles of track for parimutuel benefit.
