“Forgotten Hollywood”- Reader’s Circle Online Enlightenment!

Posted on April 3, 2012 by raideoman1 | No Comments

Manny P. here…

   I’m happy to be part of Reader’s Circle, a cyber International Book Club. It’s an interesting concept  that combines 21st Century online technology with a tried-and-true philosophy of coffee house literary discussions.

   According to their website:

You’ll note in our database that a number of listings are for Reader’s Circles. These are a new kind of book group where people attend with whatever they’re reading.

READER’S CIRCLE seeks to renew the spirit of dialogue that animated the coffeehouses of early modern England and the salons of Enlightenment France. Book clubs are only a recent form of a public conversation that goes back many, many years, and Reader’s Circles are a format that we hope adds a new dynamic to the mix of social gatherings that make for a vibrant democracy.

Each year READER’S CIRCLE serves 90,000 inquires for local book clubs in 5 countries. Top cities include: New York City, London, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego, Boston, Brooklyn, Portland, Cambridge, Minneapolis, Arlington, Houston, Austin, San Jose, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix.

Unlike some .org’s, which may be for-profit businesses, READER’S CIRCLE is the real thing. Donations are used to support our mission: to build an inclusive community; the reading public brought together as a body instead of existing merely as an abstraction.

   Here’s a link to their traditional-in-concept website:



   A book shop in Seattle lets you order copies of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History on demand. Secret Garden Books is located at 2214 NW Market St.
