Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

3 Members Read ALL of Team of Rivals!

Kudos to Barbara and Dennis, who read the whole book for this meeting! Both seemed to enjoy the book. I couldn't devote the time these past 2 months, and I was disappointed that I had to miss some of this reading experience. I listened to an abridged version, a 9-hour edition. During most of the audiobook, I sat with the book in my lap and read along. Sometimes I read parts of the book that were left out of the audio version. The book was well written, and a lot of it was fascinating! There was much insight into the historic characters and the details of their lives. The human aspects of these political people (and rivals indeed) were amazingly similar to the way people are today!

Sandy, who nominated the book, had read it when she heard Barack Obama say that if he became President and had to choose 2 books to bring to the White House, this would be one of them. For our meeting, Sandy had prepared a lot of detailed summary and analysis. This made the meeting very interesting for all of us and certainly helped those who were not able or willing to take on the challenge of this read. Thanks, Sandy!
