Reading Groups

Rachel Jacobsohn The Momma of them all, Rachel Jacobsohn's monthly snail-mail 16-pager is now defunct. The Reading Group Handbook (1998) became the spine of reading groups and The NewsJournal of the Association of Book Group Readers and Leaders is to print-based books clubs what Oprah has been to daytime viewers'.

A Friend Who Reads Former monthly 8-page snail-mail newsletter, now a Web page

PSS: the Post-Semiotic Society An international group of North Americans who are just plain book lovers. Show-and-tell is a popular feature of meetings as is the quote-capping that zips about each gathering. Currently deep into The Pillow Boy of the Lady Onogoro by the Scottish poet Alison Fell (Harcourt 0-15-100186-3), PSS also recommends Reckless Appetites: a Culinary Romance by Jacqueline Deval (Ecco 0-88001-322-2).
