The wide spectrum of books that some of us are reading was well illustrated at our last Book(s) Discussion here at the Library. The Book(s) Discussion is open to anyone who wants to talk about the books they've been reading with others. It is like a Book Club, but there is no one targeted book to be read and discussed. People can discuss the last book they read, their favorite book of all time, their favorite author, or a book they read that they did not like. There are no rules. Show and Tell with copies of the books is encoraged. We like to think of it as a free range book club. The titles below are the books that were highlighted at our last discussion. Links to Infosoup are provided in the event you want to place a hold on a title.
