Curiosity, especially intellectual inquisitiveness, is what separates the truly alive from those who are merely going through the motions.
— Tom Robbins

Now Reading Helping Friendly Book 31:

"Frankenstein” by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley


The Helping Friendly Book Club is the heart and soul of our Quest to discover the lost Secrets to Eternal Joy and Never Ending Splendor.  We nominate books that we suspect contain SEJNES, and then vote on three at a time to read. The books are discussed through social media as they are being read, and then a convivial gathering is held to cross-pollinate insights.
