Return to Book Club

Tonight was the Book Club meeting where we all bring suggestions of books that we read over the summer or just books that we’d like to suggest to read during the next year.  I love book club but this is always my favorite meeting because you get so many ideas of things to read.  This was the list of suggestions of which 12 we picked for the next 12 months (*).
