This is a group for women who enjoy what other women have to offer and share. No age limit and no expectation except that you like to read.

We choose our book with this process: 

After attending at least 2 Book club Meetups, each member becomes eligible to bring a list of book selections to the next meeting.  At each meeting we "vote" on the selection and choose, as a group, what we read next.  The member who will present the next book selection is chosen by group consensus.  The assigned member will choose 3-4 books posting  the book selections (at least one week before the next meeting) under the "Discussions" tab on the home page of the Bookclub's Meet-up Webpage.  Book descriptions should include author, title, number of pages, and a brief description of the book.  A "hard copy" of the selections will be brought to the meeting.  Because we meet monthly, a book length of under 500 pages is suggested.  As a courtesy, the member may check availability of the book at the library or by any electronic method. The San Pedro Public Library 's phone number is:  310-548-7779.
