Books Read & Discussed
Also See: Authors & Books
Is there really anything as wonderful as falling into a good book?
Books Read & Discussed focuses on the hundreds of books examined at any of the Association's Book Discussion Groups, both those currently meeting and those which are inactive. Books Read contains links to the individual S F A B C Pages for each of these books, as well as links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, GoodReads or Wikipedia.
At the present time we have three active book discussion groups:
Monsters of Horror
focuses on works featuring supernatural creatures and meets on the first Thursday of the month in the café of Barnes & Noble in Hackensack, New Jersey.
Young Fantasy Reads
spotlights current and classic fantasy and science fiction books targeted at teens and children. It meets on the third Thursday of each month at Barnes & Noble in Paramus, New Jersey.
The Month End Book Group alternates between new and old works of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. It meets on the last weeknight of the month in the food court of the Paramus Park Mall in Paramus, New Jersey.
Authors & Books
Books Read & Discussed is a sister Page to Authors & Books
. The Pages are related but distinct. For example, Books
Read & Discussed has an individual entry for each of the individual books by Jim Butcher we have discussed at one of our
gatherings. Authors & Books has one entry for Jim Butcher, a link to the author's website, and a list of all titles discussed
by our book groups.
The Quick Links allow you to quickly move to all titles starting with a particular letter instead of scrolling or paging down on this main page. This is a work in progress. Links will be active only to sub pages which have been completed.
