We’re in the Wall Street Journal!

Once a week, members of a Wellington, New Zealand, book club arrive at a cafe, grab a drink and shut off their cellphones. Then they sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour.

    Brilliant initiative and feature – in a world where fast and diluted is the fashion, the quality longer form needs to be championed!

    Hi. I read this article in the WSJ a few days ago. Personally I like to read books slowly because I don’t feel like I understand what I read if I don’t do so. We all read but we don’t really make sure whether we really understand what it says. I mean we just read a page by a page without really thinking while reading. Like rushing into something really urgent after reading. Anyway all I want to say to you is that I am really impressed by the concept of your club and I wish we have it where I live.
