Ray Bradbury famously said you don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture – just get people to stop reading them. I believe reading and conversation can transform our world.

I founded Book Oblivion to combat the intellectual isolation that so many passionate and curious minds feel when they leave academia. I offer online adult literature courses, reading groups, and reading guides for life-long learners in the areas of writing, literature, philosophy, and reading. Your support helps make this possible. 

When you join our community, you will gain access to reading groups or online courses. Each donation helps offset the tremendous amount of resources I pour into each lesson, including access to books and articles, video editing, graphics, professional development, website maintenance and security, and so much more.

I'm thankful you’re here to rescue books from oblivion with me and our growing community.
