"What I had come to love about book club (besides the fabulous desserts and free liquor) was how in hearing so many opinions about the same book, your own opinion expanded, as if you'd read the book several times instead of just once." 
— Lorna Landvik 

"No two persons ever read the same book."

–Edmund Wilson
