Cool Idea: One Book Group Meeting, Many Books

The Regulator Bookshop, Durham, N.C., has launched a reading group "where everyone decides to read a different, but similar book." The first session was held February 27 and was led by David Carr, professor of library science at UNC-Chapel Hill, who suggested the program to the store. The theme of the first meeting of Books in a Bunch is "memoirs of early life." Participants are being asked to read at least one or two of these books.
