What Silent Book Club is Reading This Month: October 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 Parsons branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, then afterward went across the street to snack and shop for books at Two Dollar Radio Headquarters.
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.

In The Woods by Tana French
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
