Simply Books! April Meeting

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?
