BOOK DISCUSSIONS

These are the books I plan to read in the next year. Would you like to join me? All book discussion take place on Zoom.  You must be registered to participate.  Registration links are below. 

I recommend the following places to purchase books: For new books, Bookshop. For used books, Better World Books. (For an additional 2.5% cash back at Better World Books, click here.)  And don’t forget your local library!  If you do not have the financial means to purchase a book, and you cannot get it from a library, someone will sponsor you. Please contact me and I will make sure you receive a book.
