Book Clubs are about challenging yourself to read books you wouldn’t normally choose. This book club challenges its members to read any book fitting the category listed, and to prepare a short “teaser” that is just a few lines about the book to share with the group. Everyone is busy, but if we share the load we can help each other discover new and interesting books that we might want to find time to read.
