Simply Books! September Meeting

It’s that time again!  After a nice summer break, the Simply Books group got together this past weekend and had a two-hour long discussion.  Once you see the titles on the list, you’ll appreciate how much fascinating discussion fodder we had!

As ever, we had a nice mix of non-fiction and fiction to talk about.  The nonfiction topics included neuroscience, futurism, positivity, literary companion books, and transgender issues.  The fiction spanned contemporary and historical, character-based and plot-based, established authors and new favorites.

Without further ado, the September Simply Books! list.  Clicking on the cover image will take you to the Shelfari Page for the book.

    • Hi! Thanks for your interest! 🙂

      With Simply Books, we haven’t got a reading list. We all simply talk about whatever book we’re reading at the moment, or what we’ve just read and would like to talk about. So you can feel free to join us next month with whatever book you’d like to share!
