While you have plenty of time for reviews, know that the next and 3rd Reading Period for Book Club will begin in one week:
The Next Reading Session will Begin: Friday, December 18th
On this day a post will appear where you can announce your next book (or continue with your current reading!). Until then, you can find more info about the club in the Book Club FAQ.
It can be hard to find the time and motivation to read on your own- hopefully book club helped you to find time for reading and that it led to some wonderful new knowledge and discoveries.
And as always, hooray for more book recommendations!
