One thing to know about our club
Our club formed about seven years ago in Naperville. We used to call our group the Men's Book Club to distinguish ourselves from the many book clubs our wives participate in. Our current name, The Most Interesting Men's Book Club in the World, came to us after watching a Dos Equis beer commercial and enjoying a particularly good bottle of pinot noir.
One book we really enjoyed
"A History of the World in Six Glasses" by Tom Standage. It was fun to have a glass of wine while reading one chapter and then a gin and tonic while taking in another.
Our selections range from science fiction to comedy to nonfiction. We really liked "A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore, "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett, "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson.
