I love to read and talk about books with people. I started a book club about 14 years ago to hang out with friends, open my eyes to new authors and to talk about books.
I have linked each book on my lists below (yes, there is more than one list) to Amazon.com in case you would like to look at the book yourself. I wouldn’t recommend purchasing any of these books, just check them out from your local library!
