Denied the kind of shapely body and beautiful face that made Hollywood producers see stars, but gifted with a razor-sharp mind and a motor mouth, Joan Alexander Molinsky made the best of her talents and rose to fame as a comedian who dissed women with beautiful faces and shapely bodies. Early in her career, Tony Rivers, an agent, urged her to drop Molinsky because it advertised her Russian Jewish immigrant roots and didn’t advance her career. She borrowed his last name, and, until she died in 2014 at the age of 81, she went by the stage name Joan Rivers.

Best Senior Book Club Online
Other websites may have Book Clubs, however, TOS50.com has developed their website primarily for Baby Boomers and older seniors, those who are on “the other side of 50, and will be giving Book Club suggestions specifically targeted to the interests of that group. TOS50's Senior Reading List will feature New Books, but you will also be able to find a book club selection for an old favorite as part of our Book Club List. The Reader's Book Club will offer Book Club Recommendations. In addition to recommending interesting books, a qualified Book Club leader will pose questions for specific books and you will be able to participate in a Book Club Discussion. This is an Online Book Club and the material will cover a wider range of subject matter than a Fiction Book Club would offer.

This is not simply a Senior Book Club. While it is true that we will attempt to offer book club books that are of interest to baby boomers and older seniors, our book club guide should be of interest to anyone interested in being part of a free book club that offers an opportunity for participants to interact online. This is not a large print book club per se, but large print books are available through Amazon.com.
You can purchase the books we recommend through Amazon.com. Simply click on the appropriate link listed on TOS50.com and you will find yourself on the Amazon.com website. Our motto is: "Join Book Club," and allow yourself the opportunity to have an interesting online experience.
