BOOKS

I have been blessed to be in a great book club for many years and thought I'd share our reading list.  Our favorite books are noted with **.  There are some stinkers on the list too, but that is the nature of a book club too.

Our club has eight members and each of us selects a book each year.  To round out our reading list, we all vote on a classic to add to the list. We do not have a book selection for May or December.  In May, we get together for dinner and discuss independent readings.  In December, we get together for a dinner and an ornament exchange.
