What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: March 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!
This month we met at the Shepard 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:
- What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia by Elizabeth Catte
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan
- The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
