The best way to experience Book Oblivion is by joining our community. 

Our Book Oblivion community reads widely and often. We strive to make connections across space and time, connecting ideas through reading and conversation. We offer reading groups that focus on literature, philosophy, specific authors, and deliver short lessons on reading strategies each month to members of our community. 

Our goal is to read with wonder by celebrating attentive reading combined with non-conscious thought. Reading is an act of invention and creation. The art of reading transforms us. Our community is here to bare witness to this transformation.
