What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: August 2019

What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: August 2019

One of the things I look forward to every month is the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Silent Book Club meeting. Everyone brings their own book and reads together quietly for an hour, then we all nerd out about books afterward. If you're in the area, you should come hang out with us!

We meet on the second Tuesday of every month and this time we met at the Parsons branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library.

We kick off the meeting with a quick round of introductions where everyone says their name and a little about what they're reading. I always take notes and post the full book list the next day. 

It's a great way for everyone to learn about books they might like and I've picked up several books I loved based on what people were reading and recommended to the group.

Here's what the group is reading this month:

  • The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters by Lorraine Lopez

  • Love Saves the Day by Gwen Cooper

  • Maniac McGee by Jerry Spinelli

  • Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

  • So Far, So Good: Final Poems 2014-2018 by Ursula K. LeGuin

  • Essays of Michel de Montaigne

  • The American Railway: Its Construction, Development, Management, and Trains by Thomas Clarke

  • American Heretics: Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and the History of Religious Intolerance by Peter Gottschalk
