Book Club Infographic March 2014

BookBrowse has this great Infographic on book club statistics that they just released.  I thought it was interesting that today's book club members tend to read some non-fiction and seem to like reading guides--both of which our club loves!  

Our next meeting is Monday, March 31st at 3pm in the Turner Room--please join us!


March 2014--Z by Therese Fowler

Our next book group meeting will be Monday, February 24 at 3pm in the LME Library Turner Room. Our book selection is  Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs.  The discussion sheet is available online.   All are welcome to attend!

Here is a short summary:
"Drop Dead Healthy teems with hilarity and warmth and pushes our cultures assumptions about and obsessions with what makes good health, allowing the reader to reflect on his or her own health, body, and eventual mortality."
