At our last meeting we chose the books for the upcoming year (and more). So I thought I'd share with you our choices in case you want to read along. If you click on the title of the book, it will take you to Amazon where you can read about it.

As you can see there is a wide variety of books and subjects that we are going to read. This is one reason I like the book club, it takes me out of my comfort zone and I get to experience new authors and new subjects that I would not normally read.
If anyone has read any of the books on the list, please let me know what you thought?
