Book & Tea Lovers of Sac Metro Message Board › Book recommendations
Elk Grove, CA
There were five of us at our first meetup this past Sunday. We had a great discussion on which books to vote on for the first few months of 2014. My sincere thanks to Doug, Bill, Caitlin and Veronica for their attendance and their thoughtful recommendations listed below. I ask you to please email me your top three picks (in order) by Friday, Dec. 27th. This should give us time to research all of the wonderful choices. Once I hear back from everyone I will post our reading list.
At the end of the month I will also post the information on our next meetup. It will be on Sunday, January 26th at 3 p.m. We are thinking of holding it at Old Soul Co. on Broadway.
Kind regards and Happy Holidays!
