Even in Sin City, people love to read and discuss books on a variety of subjects. Book groups have been created to foster each reader’s interest. Some book groups encourage debate, while others are friendly exchanges over coffee and others inspire members through reading books on self-improvement. Southern Nevada offers book clubs for book lovers whether one is looking for an intense discussion about over-the-edge fiction or popular fiction adapted into movies. Books and their readers are an important part of southern Nevada culture with many opportunities to become part of this movement while reading a good book.

This book club meets at various locations with a goal of inspiring interaction between book lovers about selected literate fiction not found on the best seller list. Members engage with each other using the art of discussion and debate. Books selected usually feature themes that encourage deep thought and introspection and the group was created to attract readers with a desire to share with others what they read and interpreted in these books.

This club discusses books that have been adapted into movies along with conversations about books that should or should not be made into movies. The members also love coffee (although not required to join) and debate in a friendly manner with humor. There will also be reviews of books (whether those books have been made into a movie or not) as well as book swaps. The group meets at various locations with one criterion: coffee must be served.
