There were LOTS of books discussed at our last meeting. Which is awesome, of course. I just didn’t get the chance to write down too much about them because I was having too much fun listening to the group talk. We had three new people join us, and I do hope they’ll be back next month! There were lots of laughs at this meeting, many stories told and nonstop conversation. Nobody wanted to stop–the conversations continued for quite a while after the meeting ended!
Look after the jump for the books that were shared this month. It’s a fantastic mix, including literary fiction, memoir, mystery, academic works, and cooking memoirs. As I said last time, this group just gets smarter and more dynamic every time we meet, and we’re all getting to be real pals.
What more could a librarian and reader ask of a book group?
