We were still assembling our YouTube playlist when two early birds arrived: Demet, the ever-enthusiastic German lady, and Michelle, a Spanish lady she had dragged along. It was fifteen minutes before 6. We would never have expected anyone to arrive so soon to the first meeting of the season.
A total of ten poeple gathered in the evening of February 27th to discuss the future of reading. We concluded that a gradual switch from printed books to e-books is inevitable, what’s more, we couldn’t come up with any serious arguments against it.

Next week we’ll be discussing the problem of homelessness. See you soon!
