Readers' Round Table - a new group for book lovers

Looking for something good to read? Welcome to Readers' Round Table, a monthly meeting for book lovers. Here's a chance to share a bit about the books you read and fill up your "to-be-read" list with recommendations by your peers.

You are welcome to share whatever great book you have read, regardless of whether it fits the monthly theme. Not sure how to "book talk"? It's easy.

We're meant to be an informal, fun, and friendly setting. All types and categories of reading are welcome. No registration and no commitment required, just drop by and come share your latest book crush with us.
