Book Club & Groups

This blog id dedicated to books. I do receive requests to review advanced reading copies (ARC's) and other works. I list these details in the FTC section.  My reviews are made available to  publishers, viewers and also libraries who use reviews to expand their collections. I truly believe reading expands awareness and am actively involved in on-line books clubs and groups. Below is a sampling of our books, topics and games.
