An American Injustice

     Our A.A.I book club sprung from my affinity to evolve, educate, and evaluate: all which I derive from reading.


Surely if there's one thing the tedium of incarceration offers is leisure.  So despite, my ill-fate, I charged for the sense of freedom books offer... Initially, I was varocious, and eclectic in taste yet through time, I found myself particularly favoring classic anthologies e.g. political/historical philosophy, compositions and literature.


But as you can gather from the broad list below we have shared all genres.  I likewise have, very much, enjoyed our endless critical bandying; as well, I've embraced your book suggestions with equal enthusiasm.  Thank You!


Today this little club of ours has grown exponentially, and with each new member our experience expands... friend's through this experience, not only, have I grown personally and intellectually but forever grateful.  Trust that the honor bestowed is solely mines.
