Brought to you with the help of a certain big, grumpy rat, and the shakespeare of public theater, thank you!
Glad you asked. This is the landing page for a temporary online book club thing, but not just any temporary online book club thing, mind you! No siree Bob, horse, dog, goat, or hog! This temporary online book club thing's primary focus will be works pertaining to zoosexuality/zoophilia. Try finding something like that at your local library... You done looking? Did you find anything? Told you. Where was I… right, as I was saying, this will be pretty much like any other temporary online book club thing. you should know the grind well by now. Step 1) Actually read the book. Step 2) Have an insightful, fun, and stimulating conversation about it. During this project’s life we will be going over works that will be, if not neutral towards the sexuality, at least not be overly negative to the point where nothing insightful can be gleaned. With all that said, what do you think? Want to give it a whirl?
Q: Got my mom's pitchfork, silly foam MS Minecraft torch, and my favorite SpongeBob meme! This is for hating on those zoos, right??
A: No, sorry bucko. Also, put that pitchfork back where you found it before you put your eye out.
Q: Aww, dash! I’m not a zoo. I'm sad now because I kind of wanted to do a meeting or two.
A: Cheer up, nobody's perfect. We would love to have you! All are welcome.
Q: I don't want Big Brother listening in on me while I talk about taboo stuff.
A: They already know exactly what you’ve been buying at Bad Dragon, the damage has already been done. If it helps, though, once we make it to the end of the temporary online book club thing, all information we have collected will be sent off to the great bitbucket in the sky. Seeing as you are kind of concerned though, make sure that you at least use an alt email account; I know I will using one.
Q: How will these meetings be held/take place?
A: Meetings will be held over one of the major video conferencing platforms/chat services, in accordance with the schedule. The meetings will be audio only, thereby negating any peer pressure to wear clothing. That and anonymity.
Q: Where is the meeting schedule? I want a neatly organized, color coded table!
A: Go here
Q: I just sent you an email 0.3*10^-11 sec ago, how come I haven’t gotten a response back!?
A: We (for the most part, anyway) have lives, so it might take a bit. Sorry in advance.
Q: Will there be any wine? Book clubs are supposed to have wine!
A: You’re right, how could I have forgotten? Go to the garage, would you, and in the old yellow refrigerator there should be a few bottles, and while you’re at it snag a few cans of Grapette for those below 21, thanks. I’ll grab some coffee cups, and then let's get started.
Great! Group meetings will be held over one of the major voice chat platforms. You probably already have it installed. Just shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us at twitter.com/zebookclub if you want to be enrolled, and we will do our best to work you in. You can also follow us on that twitter @zebookclub for an easy way to stat up to date.

|Sirius by Olaf Stapledon
Why so Sirius? Well according to one of our beloved members its “A sci-fi book from the 1940s about a hyper-intelligent GSD mix who can talk.” What more could you ask for? Despite first being published in 1944 this work of sci-fi manages to not feel at all old, In fact if you are the kind that doesn't like science fiction than this might be a good candidate for you. (judging by what I have read so far at least) Also the way the that our main character interprets his world is the most interesting I have seen in a nonhuman animal fiction book. So with all that said, Come and join us in reading Sirius: A Fantasy of Love and Discord by Olaf Stapledon.

|Understanding Bestiality and Zoophilia by Dr. Hani Miletski
If you were to take part in a drinking game, that had you take a shot every time Dr. Miletski’s study was cited. Within the hour your liver would have erupted from your abdomen. There’s good reason for this, as before Miletski’s study on zoosexualty. All one was likely to see cited was the outdated Kinsey Reports and perhaps the DSM. This book was derived from that very study, by the same Dr. Hani Miletski, and is a must read for the zoo the zoocurious or the curious about zoos.

| Dog Love by Marjorie Garber
Harvard professor Marjorie B. the author of a good many sexuality themed titles, including Bisexuality and the Eroticism of Everyday Life and Cross-Dressing and Cultural Anxiety. Also, though to put out a work involving humankinds’ best friend Canis lupus familiars. Although Dog Love is far from exclusively about the love that’s only real drawback is, you’re going to get fleas. This peace does bounce very well from one dog pertaining topic to the next, and who doesn’t love discussing dog pertaining topics!

| My Dog Tulip by J.R. Ackerley
Long before there was a Dog With a Blog there was a dog with a memoir, and her name was Tulip. First published in 1965 by J.R. Ackerley, who to go off on a bit of a tangent was a man that was able to live a remarkedly successful life, despite the fact that he lived in an era where homosexually was yes illegal but more notably quite the taboo (but I digress). This work though not about zoosexually, does unabashedly show the kind of actually sympathetic love, that is all too rare in nonzoo canine/human relationships (I’m looking at you people with the fur babies). My Dog Tulip is more centered around Tulip than say Marley & Me was centered around Marley, there is plenty here for the zoo reader. Still aren’t convince. Well have I mentioned Tulip’s sex scenes yet?

|The Horseman: Obsessions of a Zoophile by Mark Matthews
One of the classics, this is the autobiography of Mark Matthews a man that would become one of the most well-known zoos of the 90’s. Appearing in that never aired to the public episode of The Jerry Springer Show, in the documentary Animal Passions, and as a participant in the study Understanding Bestiality and Zoophilia by DR. Hani Miletski. This autobiography covers many themes including self-acceptance, suicide, objectification of women, drug use, and annoying neighbors. (This book is out of print, and there are almost zero mainstream eBook options, aka Kindle, Nook, etc. Due to that, upon request I can provide help in getting you a copy to read, if you don't already have one or are having trouble finding a copy online, let us know.)
