What Our Members Are Reading

I’m a big believer in that many of the books we read say a lot about who we are as individuals. I also know that reading slumps can be difficult to escape. If you’re interested in what your fellow book club members are reading or just need some suggestions as to what your next book should be, you’ve come to the right place!

At the end of each book related meeting, members will have the opportunity to talk about what they are reading outside of the club and throw out recommendations for others. You can also request recommendations if you’re in need of some. If you’re looking for a good historical fiction book, this is your chance to ask a group of people who have come together specifically because they like to read!

I will do my best to keep track of the books that get suggested during this time and post a list to this page for anyone to peruse at their leisure. Each recommendation window will be its own separate list for the sake of easier searching.

All of this is, naturally, a thinly veiled ploy to help me personally keep track of recommendations, but hopefully others will benefit from it, as well. 🙂
