What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: December 2018

What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: December 2018

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 Whetstone branch of the Columbus Metro 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:

  • Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn

  • America for Beginners by Leah Franqui

  • Circe by Madeline Miller

  • Private Down Under by James Patterson
