The Functions of the Book Club

Excerpt from The Functions of the Book Club: An Address by Henry H. Harper at the Rowfant Club, Cleveland, Ohio, Saturday Evening, December 19, 1908 However, when Mr. Swasey invited me to come to Cleveland he was kind enough merely to say that the members of the Rowfant Club would like to hear a few remarks upon book clubs and matters pertaining thereto. It is therefore my purpose to make what might be termed a personal-experience talk. The subject in hand is too intensely practical to admit of anything other than a plain business talk. New acquaintances have sometimes asked what my line of business is. A number of years ago I organized a corporation, of which I arbitrarily made myself president, but as I found the business was interfering with my game of golf (which is none too good at best), I decided to give up the business. It proved a costly venture, because the stockholders complained of not getting any profits, so I had to buy up all the stock in order to get rid of my job. Since then The Bibliophile Society has given me a pretty steady job - enough work to keep me out of mischief most of the time.
