Readers Over Sixty

Any member who wants to talk about books, people, events that happened that long ago. What were you reading 50+ years ago? In elementary school? In high school? In college and/or while you did other things? Which of those books affected you and why? What type of reading have you done all your life? How has your reading changed over the years?

I think these and other questions will provide interesting discussion.
