I’ve been in several book clubs over the years —  I love sharing books and our club meetings.  Below a list of our books in no particular order really —  click on the title to be re-directed to book club!

Also- if you know me, you know I adore Little Free Libraries and have helped in creating and placing about 15 or so in my area.  They are TRUE MAGIC.  For adults or children.
