    This seems to be some ugly, universal human impulse. Four friends decide to read the same book and talk about it. Three weeks later they do and some like it, some don't, they eat nachos, and share kid pix or look at cat videos.

    Three years later there are 30 members (a President, a coordinating secretary, and a social media manager), nobody eats nachos because they aren't vegan or somebody has a corn chip intolerance, you can't not like the book (you just need to be way more educated), and what was fun is now a big slog with what amounts to a public presentation judged by the 'cool kids' and you can't drop it because three BFs are there.

    You will never again get the nachos.

    Unless the person drops out and gets ALL of them, just for themselves including the cheese dip! Just read the book. Post on facebook.
