There is a general explanation of the group and some answers to FAQ under the discussion thread GROUP GUIDELINES. The past BOTM can be found pinned to the top for 2010 and 2009 if you want to search discussions you can join in anytime.
The books of the month (BOTM) that the group is reading are pinned to the top. August books are
The ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN by Mark Twain
THE KILLER INSIDE ME by Jim Thompson
VANITY FAIR by Wm Thackeray
You can read one, all or none. If you read another book from the list please post a review and rating in the discussion thread for other books.
We also have a Long Read consisting of books from the list that are greater than a 1000 pages. The group will be starting with WAR AND PEACE by Tolstoy.
I am an old hippy at heart. I went through my childhood in the sixties and adolescence in the seventies so I am familiar with Terence Mckennas work and writings. The Archaic Revival is a good read if these are things that pique your interest. I am enjoying it. Life is an exploration and this book deals with part of my personal exploration.
Have a beautiful day.
