"Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid." ~ G.K. Chesterton
We are readers. Avid readers of wide-ranging works. Readers who cultivate what Tolkien called "the leaf mold" of the mind, the topsoil of our moral imagination and creativity.
We aren't embarrassed to enjoy "kid lit" and YA fiction, or afraid to read sociological & political works that challenge our assumptions. We enjoy classic novels, hard-boiled crime thrillers, controversial works of theology & culture, economics, productivity & personal development. We are not bound by social or political convention.
We "read for pleasure in an age of distraction." We consume and engage books for stimulation, conviction & enrichment. We want to stretch our minds, grow in empathy, & experience the joys & challenges of reading good books.
We read with an open mind in order to close it on something solid. Please join us!
