Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?

Try MeetUp. I’ve seen several local, virtual book clubs there. None specifically for classics in my area, but I would love something like this.

I majored in engineering and business, I didn’t read a single novel in college (academically). Not sure you necessarily missed out on it in college

I def was not doing Book Clubs in college. But, I love reading and this is a great idea! I’d do it except am already on 2 book clubs and now a new one starting up at work, so I am over-extended on book clubs, for now. Great idea and I hope it works out!

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown.

I’m a professional not a child to berate.

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard.

I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
