What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: February 2018

What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: February 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 kick off the meeting with a quick round of introductions where everyone says their name and a little about what they're reading. It's a great way for everyone to learn about books they might like. I always take notes and post the full book list the next day. 

Here's what the group is reading this month:

  • The Turner House by Angela Flournoy
  • Living History by Hillary Rodham Clinton
  • Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward
  • The Ragged Astronauts by Bob Shaw
