The Far Northside Co-Ed Book Club Message Board › What Are Some of Your Favorite Books? (Part Two)
Hi everyone! I hope everyone is safe and sound indoors during this lovely blizzard. I don't know about you, but this weather makes me want to curl up with some tea in front of the fireplace and read. I have about seven books in the queue for the next few days of hibernation.
When the book club first started, I had posted a discussion for folks to list the books they're currently reading, have read recently and/or some of their favorites. We had some great responses (and I know I checked out a few of the selections based on the recommendations) so, as we have a lot of new members since that original post, I wanted to throw a new one out there so folks could continue adding.
Attached is a link to the original thread, in case you want to check out some of the excellent recommendations by our longtime members. Please feel free to add to the list!
What are you reading? What are you looking forward to reading? What are some of your all time favorites? Who are some of your favorite authors?
